Spyware Pegasus - Apple corrige Mac OS X et Safari

Spyware Pegasus - Apple corrige Mac OS X et Safari | Apple, Mac, MacOS, iOS4, iPad, iPhone and (in)security... | Scoop.it

Après iOS, Apple corrige les failles Trident dans OS X Yosemite et El Capitan. Exploitées, elles permettent à un attaquant d'espionner l'utilisateur en installant furtivement un malware. Safari a aussi été mis à jour.

 

La semaine dernière, Lookout et Citizen Lab dévoilaient publiquement l'existence d'un spyware commercial conçu par la très discrète société NSO. Comme Gamma Group (à l'origine du logiciel espion Finfisher) et Hacking Team, son activité consiste à développer et vendre des outils d'espionnage.

Et pour s'installer sur un iPhone, ce spyware baptisé Pegasus exploitait trois vulnérabilités inconnues d'iOS (Trident). Depuis Apple a développé et diffusé des correctifs de sécurité auprès des utilisateurs de sa plateforme.

ALERT!!! Update OS X Right Now or You Could Get Some Nasty Spyware | #CyberSecurity #Updates #Apple #Awareness

ALERT!!! Update OS X Right Now or You Could Get Some Nasty Spyware | #CyberSecurity #Updates #Apple #Awareness | Apple, Mac, MacOS, iOS4, iPad, iPhone and (in)security... | Scoop.it
Apple has issued an urgent security update for OS X El Capitan, OS X Yosemite and Safari to protect against the same security vulnerability that hit iOS last week.

To update on OS X, go to App Store > Updates and then install the Security Update 2016-001 (for El Capitan) or 2016-005 (for Yosemite). For users on OS X Mavericks, a Safari update is available as well.

Oh and while you’re at it, you should update iOS as well. (Just go to Settings > General > Software Update on your device, and follow the instructions.) The urgent OS X patch comes a week after Lookout Security and Citizen Lab discovered a nasty strain of spyware that could hijack an iPhone with a simple text message. Lookout Security’s Mike Murray called it “one of the most sophisticated pieces of cyberespionage software we’ve ever seen.”

Fake Tor browser for iOS laced with adware, spyware, members warn

Fake Tor browser for iOS laced with adware, spyware, members warn | Apple, Mac, MacOS, iOS4, iPad, iPhone and (in)security... | Scoop.it
Title available since November raises questions about App Store vetting process.


Apple has never described exactly what its process is for ensuring the titles in its App Store are safe.


Although the comparatively fewer reports of rogue apps for iOS suggest that the review process is more stringent than Google's, the report ticket from Tor's high-ranking members suggests that Apple may not be doing everything it can or should do to protect iPhone and iPad users.
