Wirelurker s’attaquerait dans un premier temps aux ordinateurs fonctionnant sous OS X, puis surveille les connexions d’appareil iOS via USB au Mac infecté. C’est cette particularité qui a retenu l’attention de la plupart des chercheurs en sécurité. Jonathan Zdziarski explique ainsi que « si Wirelurker apparait être encore très jeune […] et facile à détecter, le réel problème est ici celui posé par le manque de sécurisation du système d’appariement d’Apple. »

Si le nom de Zdziarski vous évoque confusément quelque chose sans que vous parveniez à remettre le doigt dessus, il est le chercheur à l'origine de la récente polémique autour des backdoors de maintenance découverts sur les terminaux Apple cet été.

OS X Yosemite sports serious privilege escalation bug

OS X Yosemite sports serious privilege escalation bug | Apple, Mac, iOS4, iPad, iPhone and (in)security... | Scoop.it
A Swedish researcher has unearthed a serious bug that affects the newest version of OS X - version 10.10, or Yosemite - and which could allow attackers to gain complete control of the target's Mac machine.

It's a privilege escalation bug he dubbed Rootpipe, but declined to explain why, as the explanation could reveal details that would help attackers find it and create an exploit.

The existence of the flaw has been indirectly confirmed by Apple when they asked the researcher to delay publishing details about it until January 2015, after a fix for the bug is released and pushed out to users


Rootpipe is a privilege escalation from admin to root so switching to a non-admin account would clearly be a good thing," Kvarnhammar said.

Masque Attack: So schützen Sie sich vor der iOS-Lücke | Cyber Security | Apple | Apple, Mac, iOS4, iPad, iPhone and (in)security... | Scoop.it
Nach der vergleichsweise harmlosen WireLurker-Angriffsmethode sorgt inzwischen eine weitaus bedrohlichere iOS-Schwachstelle für Schlagzeilen. Die Angriffsart «Masque Attack» hat es dabei auf alle iPhone-Nutzer abgesehen, auch auf iPhones ohne Jailbreak.
Die Methode macht sich die Tatsache zunutze, dass die von Apple herausgegebenen Enterprise-Zertfikate die Installation neuer Anwendungen auch ausserhalb des App-Stores zulassen.


Die Cyberkriminellen seien sogar in der Lage, installierte iOS-Apps zu überschreiben. Fällt jemand auf die Masche rein, wird beispielsweise unbemerkt eine tägliche Anwendung wie Gmail überschreiben. So könnte z.B. eine E-Banking-App als Keylogger-Anwendung missbraucht werden, um Bankdaten von Nutzern auszuspionieren.

WireLurker: A new breed of iOS and OS X malware that has infected thousands | Cyber Security | Apple, Mac, iOS4, iPad, iPhone and (in)security... | Scoop.it
In short, the initial WireLurker infection comes from a third-party Mac OS X app store (in this case, the Chinese Maiyadi app store). Once you download and install an infected app onto your OS X machine, that’s where the fun begins. If you then plug an iOS device into an infected OS X machine, WireLurker installs itself on the iOS device. By using iOS’s enterprise provisioning system — a method usually reserved for companies to side-load apps directly onto corporate iOS devices — WireLurker can even infect non-jailbroken devices.

The evolution of OS X malware.

The evolution of OS X malware. | Apple, Mac, iOS4, iPad, iPhone and (in)security... | Scoop.it
Is there any (Mac) OS X-specific malware around? Oh yes. But for some odd reason I haven't said anything interesting on this topic for quite a while… The last time was two and a half years ago. Yes...


So what can we deduce from these data?


First: cybercriminals find it easiest making money with mostly legal (well, almost legal) approaches. Persistent advertising also makes money, and coupled with large-scale infections – big money.


Second: OS X virus writers are a fairly rare but sophisticated species. Unlike the Windows virus scene, the OS X virus scene bypassed the childish stage of ‘viruses for fun’ and went straight to the grown-up – Mac OS – stuff with all the attendant hardcore malware tricks that are necessary for it. These are serious folks, folks! It’s very likely they honed their skills on the Windows platform first, and then went over to Mac to conquer new, uncharted territory in search of new untapped money-making possibilities. After all, the money’s there, and the users are relatively blasé about security, which means there are plenty of opportunities – for those blackhatters who are willing to put in the work.


Third: professional espionage groups have really taken to exploiting OS X. Many APT attacks in the last few years acquired Mac-modules, for example CaretoIcefog, and the targeted attacks against Uyghur activists. Yes, here we’re talking pinpointed –exclusive as opposed to mass – attacks, aimed at specially chosen victims; this is why they don’t figure in the top-20. Not that they are any less dangerous; especially if your data may be interesting to intelligence agencies.
