Bug eats into Apple security patch software


The group behind the Month of Apple Bugs (Moab) project has found a flaw in software designed to fix security issues on Apple Macs.

The vulnerability affects the Application Enhancer (Ape) software, which was designed by a rival group trying to combat the flaws highlighted by Moab.

The bug could allow malicious users on a local system to replace Ape's binary code and take control of the root privileges on a computer. Bug eats into Apple security patch software - vnunet.com
