Episode 2 of the Collective Intelligence Podcast features an interview with well-known Mac security researcher Patrick Wardle, chief research officer of Digita Security. Patrick has done important work uncovering vulnerabilities affecting the MacOS platform, as well as researching malware samples targeting Mac machines.
In this episode, Flashpoint Editorial Director Mike Mimoso and Patrick discuss two pieces of Mac malware that have been made public since the start of the year. The first is CrossRAT, a remote access Trojan linked to a global cyber espionage campaign called Dark Caracal, while the other is MaMi, a MacOS DNS hijacker that also has the ability to replace a machine’s root certificate and spy on the user’s web traffic.
Mike and Patrick also have a bigger discussion on the continued misperceptions around the security of Mac computers and why it’s important for users to understand the risks to a platform many still believe to be impervious to hackers.
Read Patrick’s research on CrossRAT and MaMi.
