Spoiler: Former NSA Hacker Revealed how easy it was to Hack Apple's new macOS High Sierra

10.1A  SNAP News Bar


Yesterday Apple released macOS High Sierra to happy Mac owners who couldn't get their hands on the next-gen OS that was free of charge. Of course something had to try to spoil the moment and a security researcher Patrick Wardle, a former NSA hacker who now serves as chief security researcher at ‎Synack, posted a video of the High Sierra hack -- a password exfiltration exploit -- in action. Passwords are stored in the Mac's Keychain, which typically requires a master login password to access the vault. But Wardle has shown that the vulnerability allows an attacker to grab and steal every password in plain-text using an unsigned app downloaded from the internet, without needing that password. Wardle tested the exploit on High Sierra, but said that older versions of macOS and OS X are also vulnerable. Read more about this here.
