Hackers find way of breaking out of Apple’s sand box ( OS X and iOS )

Posted By Scott Paterson on Jun 17, 2015 | 3 comments


Just this afternoon I was involved in a discussion about how hackers exploit the most difficult to find holes in operating systems, networks and hardware to gain a way in or in some cases out of the protections wrapped around our technology by the people who developed them.

These protections are increasingly complex and sophisticated but as this article from Ars Technica shows the bad guys ( or good guys if they are doing this to expose weaknesses to the vendors rather than using for personal gain ) continue to find ways around and through the barriers.

Apple have long claimed that their operating systems and software are best in class as far as security is concerned, but as we all know these sort of claims are only going to encourage hackers to prove them wrong, more so over recent years as Apples market share has grown.

Hopefully steps are already in place to fix this latest vulnerability.

  1. Megan, thanks for leaving the link for readers of my blog. I had already seen reference to your article and had intended to read it and as a 1Password user myself I found it very informative.

    Thanks.
