Mac Spyware Found at Oslo Freedom Forum

Mac Spyware Found at Oslo Freedom Forum | Apple, Mac, iOS4, iPad, iPhone and (in)security... | Scoop.it

 

The Oslo Freedom Forum is an annual event "exploring how best to challenge authoritarianism and promote free and open societies."

 

This year's conference (which took place May 13-15) had a workshop for freedom of speech activists on how to secure their devices against government monitoring.

 

During the workshop, Jacob Appelbaum actually discovered a new and previously unknown backdoor on an African activist's Mac.

Our Mac analyst (Brod) is currently investigating the sample.

It's signed with an Apple Developer ID.
