Sellout creates an Apple worm

Published by at 10:17 am under Apple/Mac

I’m not a big fan of the Information Security Sell Out, but I have to admire the fact that he’s created a ‘weaponized’ worm for Mac OS X.  He’s (or they) are refusing to show a proof of concept or release the vulnerability, so all we have so far is a claim, but I’m willing to believe that this is something real.  I’ll be interested in watching my Mac Book Pro over the next few months to see what patches are released and if anyone is given credit for discovering the vulnerabilities.  Not that I expect Apple to give anyone credit.  Or the Sellout to do anything as obvious as putting his own name on a vulnerability after posting that he’s got an exploit.
