Un nouveau malware découvert sur iOS | #AceDeceiver #Apple #CyberSecurity #CyberCrime #iPad #iPhone 

Un nouveau malware découvert sur iOS | #AceDeceiver #Apple #CyberSecurity #CyberCrime #iPad #iPhone  | Apple, Mac, MacOS, iOS4, iPad, iPhone and (in)security... | Scoop.it
Décidément les chercheurs du Palo Alto Networks ont fort à faire ces dernières semaines. Après le ransomware KeRanger détecté sur MacOSX, c'est au tour d'iOS d'être touché par un nouveau malware. Toutefois, AceDeceiver fait dans la nouveauté. Au lieu d'essayer de leurrer les systèmes d'Apple, ce dernier a trouvé un moyen de pénétrer iOS sans même avoir besoin d'un quelconque certificat.

Habituellement lorsqu'un utilisateur achète et télécharge des applications depuis iTunes/App Store, la boutique demande obligatoirement un code d'autorisation afin d'approuver et de sécuriser l'installation. 
Dans le cas de cette attaque, les hackers ont exploité une faille pour récupérer le code généré par iTunes. De cette manière, ils peuvent installer n'importe quelle application souhaitée sur appareil. Ils ont par la suite développé un logiciel qui simule le comportement d'un client iTunes cela permet de leurrer le système qui pense que l'application a bien été achetée et qu'elle est sécurisée. L'installation de l'application corrompue ce fait alors sans aucun problème sur votre appareil.

Ce type d'attaque "man in the middle" est très problématique car quand bien même les applications corrompues sont supprimées de l'App Store, la faille reste accessible.

Cette attaque a été détectée en toute fin de semaine dernière par des chercheurs de Palo Alto Networks. Ces derniers ont donc identifié un ransomware, "KeRanger", dissimulé au sein d’un client BitTorrent populaire sous OS X, Transmission.

When Apple’s Worldwide Developer Certificate expired in February it caused problems for some developers, but another major problem that’s going to affect more people has just surfaced: it breaks OS X installers.

If you’ve created an OS X installation CD or downloaded an installer it won’t work anymore because it can’t be verified with Apple. To get it going again, you need to re-download the entire installer and create a new CD, which is an utter hassle.

Anyone who has been using computers for any length of time should (hopefully) be aware of the endless ritual of updating Adobe Flash against security vulnerabilities. Even if you don't run Flash on your computer, you've surely seen the many headlines in the tech media over the years of the importance of keeping Adobe Flash (and its Acrobat PDF Reader stablemate) updated to protect against malicious attack.

So, what better way to trick someone into having their computer infected than by disguising it as an actual Adobe Flash update?

That's precisely what criminals are doing now, in their attempts to infect Apple Mac users with scareware.

Derzeit besteht zwar keine konkrete Gefahr, da Apple bereits vor drei Wochen von Palo Alto informiert wurde und die von AceDeceiver in den App Store geschmuggelten Apps aus dem Angebot entfernt hat.

Gust MEES's insight:

IoT devices are enlarging our attack surface, we are surrounded by devices that manage a huge quantity of information and that could be abused by hackers.

Apple has patched more than 60 vulnerabilities affecting the Apple TV, including flaws that can lead to arbitrary code execution, information disclosure, crash of the application, modifications to protect parts of the filesystem.

This new release of Apple TV version 7.2.1, comes 10 months after the lasted update issued in April 2015. The new version fixes a number of security vulnerabilities in several components of the Apple TV. The company has patched 33 issued, collectively referenced in 58 CVEs, Apple fixed 19 code execution holes that could be exploited with crafted web content.

The changes will be automatically applied to the users that have enabled the automatic updates.

Available On THE AppStore: 'Huge' number of Mac apps are vulnerable to man-in-the-middle attacks | Apple | Nobody Is Perfect | CyberSecurity

Available On THE AppStore: 'Huge' number of Mac apps are vulnerable to man-in-the-middle attacks | Apple | Nobody Is Perfect | CyberSecurity | Apple, Mac, MacOS, iOS4, iPad, iPhone and (in)security... | Scoop.it
Many of OS X’s most popular apps were recently revealed to be vulnerable to man-in-the-middle (MiTM) attacks.

The vulnerability specifically targets those that use Sparkle — a third-party software update framework — and unencrypted HTTP connections.

A security engineer from Vulnsec, known as Radek, said the vulnerability works on both El Capitan and its predecessor, Yosemite.

The total number of apps affected isn’t known, but Radek did estimate the number to be “huge.” Some of those confirmed as vulnerable are:

Camtasia 2 (v2.10.4)
DuetDisplay (v1.5.2.4)
uTorrent (v1.8.7)
Sketch (v3.5.1)
Additionally, security researcher Jonathan Zdziarski told Ars Technica that the ‘Hopper’ reverse engineering tool and ‘DXO Optics Pro’ are also susceptible.

Nine fixes were posted for the Mac platform, including a fix for a flaw that could've allowed an attacker to execute code with kernel privileges. The patch also comes with fix for an issue that prevents some Macs from waking from sleep when connected to some 4K-resolution displays.

Another batch of nine fixes were also posted for the iOS platform, including a WebSheet flaw that could've allowed a malicious captive portal from accessing user cookies.

While Patch Tuesday is a well-known event for Microsoft and Adobe users, Apple product owners this week received a dose of reality when they found themselves on the receiving end of several security updates.

Apple released multiple updates that touch most of its product portfolio and Apple fans can look forward to more of the same as the company's devices are targeted by cybercriminals, according to Symantec blogger and senior information developer Dick O'Brien. While the number of threats is miniscule compared to what Microsoft, Google and Adobe users face, they are increasing.
