Cybersecurity specialist Thomas Read has discovered a new way to hack the macOS operating system.
As Reed found out, already installed applications can be used to execute malicious code on computers Apple. Although the OS security system carefully checks them during the installation of programs, it rarely re-analyzes the software. Thus, in order to gain control over a PC, an attacker needs to inject a virus into the software that is already present in the system.
Thomas Reid invites application developers to combat this vulnerability by building their own checks into them.
