Macbooks Are No Longer Secure
- Thunderstrike 2
- A worm that infects Mac Books
- The worm Thunderstrike 2 can infect a MAC remotely without an internet connection through a spiteful email or a USB stick or even an ethernet adaptor
To cut it short
#Apple computers have always been considered safe and secure because their firmware couldn’t be infiltrated.
The secure phase is coming to an end, as a newly developed self-replicating worm has been identified. This vicious worm can spread automatically from one Mac to another without a network connection, and it is that the worm is not only hard to identify, but also difficult to protect against something that’s running inside the firmware. Researchers suggest that the only way to get rid of the worm is to re-flash the chip that contains the firmware. Well! Knowing that Apple always has a Plan B in place for all its glitches, we are confident that this worm will soon be a thing of history!
