Apple's T2 Mac security chip may be vulnerable, researcher claims

A security researcher claims to have figured out how to break the T2 security chip on modern Intel-based Macs using a pair of exploits developed to jailbreak older phones. Apple has not commented on these claims.

What the research claims

The claim seems to be that because the T2 chip is based on the older A10 series Apple processor, it is possible to use two jailbreak tools (Checkm8 and Blackbird) to modify the behavior of T2, or even install malware to the chip.

It’s not an easy hack: Not only must an attacker have local access to the Mac, but they must connect to the target Mac using a non-standard “debugging” USB-C cable and run a version of a jailbreaking software package during startup.

Why you need Apple support to secure the C-suite

Credit to Author: Jonny Evans| Date: Thu, 17 Sep 2020 06:27:00 -0700

I get it. You’re one of those enterprises that doesn’t (yet) support Apple products among employees, but does that moratorium extend to the C-suite? I’m willing to bet it does not, and that’s why even Windows-only IT must learn how to secure Apple’s products.

Ignore the fantasy, this is reality

The reality is that Apple’s products are popular in the enterprise. And while there are many businesses that don’t officially support them, one section of civic society that pretty much always do their own thing no matter what they ask others to do are the boys and girls in the C-suite. I can still recall the number of CFO’s I spoke with early on in the iPad days who were deeply interested in trying the Apple tablet. Many did.

How to get one of iOS's best new privacy features on Android

Credit to Author: JR Raphael| Date: Tue, 21 Jul 2020 03:00:00 -0700

Apple’s latest iOS update may have taken plenty of inspiration from Android — to put it mildly — but iPhone owners will soon enjoy one important feature that isn’t anywhere to be found here in the land o’ Googley devices. And it’s connected to a subject that’s increasingly near and dear to many of our hearts: privacy.

The iOS 14 beta includes a new system that shows a visual alert anytime an app is using a device’s microphone or camera, even in the background. It’s a smart bit of added privacy protection, especially since traditionally — on iOS as well as on Android — once you’ve granted an app access to those parts of your phone, the app is technically able to tap into ’em anytime, with or without notifying you that it’s doing it.
