TOP VULNERABILITY THIS WEEK: Firmware Bug in Apple Mac Products Could

Allow Installation of Low-Level Malware


NOTABLE RECENT SECURITY ISSUES SELECTED BY THE TALOS SECURITY INTELLIGENCE AND RESEARCH GROUP

Title: Vulnerability in Mac Firmware Could Allow Installation of
Low-Level Malware
Description: Researchers have disclosed a vulnerability within the Mac
firmware found on certain Apple products that could allow malware to
overwrite parts of the BIOS and install a low-level rootkit. This
vulnerability only impacts Macs purchased before mid-2014 and requires
the Mac to have gone to sleep and woken up. Apple has not released any
updated firmware addressing this vulnerability in affected Macs.
