2 Mac Security Flaws Out There

Apple warns its Mac OS X users about 2 new vulnerabilities in the platform that can be used for attacks. By the way, at least one of which is already in the wild. The first is called Rootpipe and affects various versions of Mac OS X, including the latest one, and allows a hacker to gain “root” control of a machine without a password. In theory, this flaw could allow an intruder to install malware to steal sensitive data, including credit cards details. The second flaw was dubbed Wirelurker and targets iOS devices that haven’t been jailbroken and are connected to Mac. It could be used to extract basic personal information from the device.

Rootpipe was discovered by the Swedish hacker working for the local security company. The flaw is regarded as privilege escalation vulnerability. As you know, any modern OS employs multiple tiers of security to make sure a typical user cannot accidentally damage the machine, so the highest level of access (“root”) is normally cordoned off from all but the most essential software. So, Rootpipe allows a hacker to ignore that requirement and access the root without a password. Now the simplest way to protect your Mac is to stop using an administrative account every day, instead switching to a normal user account.

As for Wirelurker, it is already present in the wild, propagating on some pirated Chinese software. When the Internet user runs that software, they also install Wirelurker, which waits until the user connects a mobile device to their Mac. Once this happens, the malware scrapes personal information and tries to install malicious copies of apps.

According to security experts, the malware is quite innocuous, but the techniques it uses (abusing Apple’s iDevice management systems) may open the door to much more damaging programs.
