Apple releases iOS 9.3.1 to kill the app-freezing Safari bug

Apple releases iOS 9.3.1 to kill the app-freezing Safari bug | Apple, Mac, iOS4, iPad, iPhone and (in)security... | Scoop.it
Earlier this week we reported a bug in iOS 9.3 that caused apps to become unresponsive after tapping on links in Safari. The bug seemed to affect any iOS device, but was most prevalent on the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus.

Today, Apple released an update to fix the problem.

iOS / OS X : un faille critique touche presque toutes les versions | #Apple #CyberSecurity #Mac | Apple, Mac, iOS4, iPad, iPhone and (in)security... | Scoop.it
Des chercheurs de SentinelOne ont mis au jour une importante faille de sécurité qui touche presque la totalité des versions d'iOS et de Mac OS X. Cette dernière permet de réécrire la mémoire afin de prendre le contrôle d'un Mac ou d'un appareil sous iOS et d'exécuter des commandes illicites. Là où le bât blesse, est que ce type d'attaque est difficilement décelable, il est donc possible d'être infecté sans s'en rendre compte et réagir. 

Cette vulnérabilité découverte début 2015 et présentée à Apple en janvier 2016 a été corrigée sur les dernières versions d'iOS 9.3 et OS X 10.11.4, vous n'avez pas effectué ces MAJ, on ne peut donc que vous recommander de le faire. L'utilisation de cette faille est complexe et n'est pas du ressort de tout le monde, à ce jour selon les chercheurs de SentinelOne aucun virus ne semble l'exploiter.

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

Discover how many ways there were to hack your Apple TV | IoT | Internet Of Things | CyberSecurity | Apple, Mac, iOS4, iPad, iPhone and (in)security... | Scoop.it

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.

Apple releases an official fix for iPhone bricking 'Error 53' issue | Apple, Mac, iOS4, iPad, iPhone and (in)security... | Scoop.it
Apple has released an update for iOS 9.2.1, which will solve the annoying ‘Error 53’ message that was bricking iPhones.

If you’re not familiar, Error 53 happened when devices with new Touch ID sensors from unauthorized Apple repair shops — using components not sourced properly — failed fingerprint scans.

When the new Touch ID hardware was used, it caused iOS to freak out; it could tell the components weren’t original, and thus shut the phone down entirely as a safety precaution.

Apple iPhone zero-day could let crooks steal photos, videos and more…

Apple iPhone zero-day could let crooks steal photos, videos and more… | Apple, Mac, iOS4, iPad, iPhone and (in)security... | Scoop.it
Well known American cryptographer Matthew Green has just announced a zero-day flaw in Apple’s iMessage, and perhaps in other online Apple services.

Green and a team of students from Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland, figured out a cryptographic flaw in the way iPhones interact with Apple’s servers.

(To give them their due, the students are named by The Register as: Ian Miers, Christina Garman, Gabriel Kaptchuk, and Michael Rushanan.)

The hole apparently allows a determined attacker to shake loose photos and videos sent via Apple’s iMessage service by figuring out the needed cryptographic secrets bit-by-bit, photo-by-photo.

In other words, this is not a trivial attack; it doesn’t break open any of your Apple accounts to give open access to crooks; and it doesn’t let an attacker download all your digital treasures in one go.

As far as we can see, you get one photo or video each time you mount the attack, about which the abovementioned Ian Miers has tweeted “you have 14 hours to guess what the attack is.”

That tweet was 8 hours ago [as at 2016-03-21T12:30Z], so perhaps he means that Apple’s fix is coming out in six hours’ time, because the team’s paper will intentionally only be published after Apple ships its patch.

Miers also tweeted that “[t]he attack is more interesting than just attachments and affected more than just iMessage. Apple had to fix other apps, but won’t say what.”

Ah, the mystery!

As far as we can see, you get one photo or video each time you mount the attack, about which the abovementioned Ian Miers has tweeted “you have 14 hours to guess what the attack is.”

That tweet was 8 hours ago [as at 2016-03-21T12:30Z], so perhaps he means that Apple’s fix is coming out in six hours’ time, because the team’s paper will intentionally only be published after Apple ships its patch.

Miers also tweeted that “[t]he attack is more interesting than just attachments and affected more than just iMessage. Apple had to fix other apps, but won’t say what.”

Ah, the mystery!

Der womöglich erste Trojaner für iOS, die nicht von Jailbreaks geschwächte iPhones und iPads befallen können, lautet auf den Namen AceDeceiver. Die Sicherheitsspezialisten von Palo Alto Networks haben heute einen ausführlichen Blogbeitrag veröffentlicht, in dem sie die Funktionsweise erklären. 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.

Erstmals zielt funktionstüchtige Ransomware auf OS-X-Nutzer ab. Nach der Infektion bleiben drei Tage, bis "KeRanger" Dokumente verschlüsselt. Nutzer sollten prüfen, ob sie betroffen sind – und Gegenmaßnahmen ergreifen.

Die Mac-Schad-Software "KeRanger" setzte als Infektionsweg – soweit bislang bekannt – auf den BitTorrent-Client Transmission. Die Angreifer hatten offenbar Zugriff auf den Server, über den das OS-X-Programm verteilt wird. Das normale Disk-Image mit Transmission 2.90 sei durch eine manipulierte Version ersetzt worden, die nach Angabe der Entwickler nur rund 6500 Mal heruntergeladen wurde.

Nach der Infektion wartet KeRanger drei Tage ab, bis die Malware anfängt, Nutzerdokumente zu verschlüsseln, als Lösegeld wird vom Nutzer dann ein Bitcoin gefordert, umgerechnet rund 380 Euro. Es ist möglich, dass KeRanger künftig auch auf andere Wege zur Infektion setzt.

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.
