Do you also play with non-PlayStation devices? Do you enjoy playing as a plumber saving a princess? Or some bald marines? Or maybe you want to play using the touchscreen?

MacOS Malware Targets Swiss Bank Customers Via Phishing Emails
Trend Micro, a Japanese security software company, has detected a new piece of malware for the macOS platform that seems to be targeting Swiss bank users. The malware, which Trend Micro called OSX_DOK, spread via a phishing campaign.

How The Infection Began
The malware authors would first send the victims a phishing email that contained either .zip or .docx files that were infected with the malware. When the users clicked on the file, a warning window would appear claiming that the file couldn’t be opened.
*SNIP!*

Not cool... :shock:

APFS Bug in macOS High Sierra Can Cause Data Loss When Writing to Disk Images
Apple's APFS file system included in macOS High Sierra suffers from a disk image vulnerability that in certain circumstances can lead to data loss, according to the creator of Carbon Copy Cloner.

In a blog post last Thursday, software developer Mike Bombich explained that he had uncovered the data writing flaw in the Apple File System, or APFS, through his regular work with "sparse" disk images.

For those who aren't familiar with the term, a sparse disk image is basically a file that macOS mounts on the desktop and treats as if it was a physically attached drive with a classic disk volume structure. The flexibility of sparse disk images means they are commonly used in the course of performing backup and disk cloning operations, hence Bombich's extensive experience with them.

QUOTE: Earlier this week I noticed that an APFS-formatted sparsebundle disk image volume showed ample free space, despite that the underlying disk was completely full. Curious, I copied a video file to the disk image volume to see what would happen. The whole file copied without error! I opened the file, verified that the video played back start to finish, checksummed the file - as far as I could tell, the file was intact and whole on the disk image. When I unmounted and remounted the disk image, however, the video was corrupted. If you've ever lost data, you know the kick-in-the-gut feeling that would have ensued. Thankfully, I was just running some tests and the file that disappeared was just test data.

Two related problems are identified by Bombich, above. The first is that the free space on the APFS-formatted sparse disk image doesn't update as it should when the free space on the underlying physical host disk is reduced. The second problem is the lack of error reports when write requests fail to dynamically grow the disk image, resulting in data being "written" into a void. Bombich tracks both bugs back to macOS's background "diskimages-helper" application service, which he has since reported to Apple.



Every installation of High Sierra on Macs with all-flash storage converts the existing file system to APFS, which is optimized for modern storage systems like solid-state drives. However, as Bombich notes, ordinary APFS volumes like SSD startup disks are not affected by the problem described above, so the vast majority of users won't be affected by it - the flaw is most applicable when making backups to network volumes. Bombich says Carbon Copy Cloner will not support AFPS-formatted sparse disk images until Apple resolves the issue.

The APFS flaw follows the discovery of another bug in Apple's operating systems that received extensive coverage last week. That bug is induced by sending a specific character in the Indian language Telugu, which causes certain apps on iPhones, iPads, and Macs to freeze up and become unresponsive. The Telugu character bug has already been fixed in Apple's upcoming iOS 11.3 and macOS 10.13.4 software updates.

Perhaps it'll be called the Apple AirHeadPods. :bigmouth: (Please don't flame, I also use Apple products. :lol: )

What do you think Apple will call its over-ear headphones? (Poll)
A pair of recent reports have indicated that Apple is currently developing its own over-ear headphones, slated for release as early as the end of this year.

As is the case anytime a new Apple product is rumored, everyone quickly speculates as to what it could be called. Thus, it’s time for the same conversation about Apple’s headphones. What do you think they’ll be called?

Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities was first to report on Apple’s plans to release its own pair of headphones, with Bloomberg corroborating the report with a few added details. Apple’s over-ear headphones are said to feature noise-cancelling technology and use the same wireless pairing technology as the AirPods.

Work on Apple’s headphones has reportedly been “on-and-off over the past year,” with it still being possible for the company to completely scrap the product altogether. The company is said to be facing design issues, already going through several redesigns.

Given that Apple itself seems to be unsure of the plans for its headphones, it’s altogether possible that it hasn’t decided on a name. However, a few possibilities immediately jump to mind.

AirPhones would be a play on AirPods and headphones, while HeadPods builds off both the HomePod and AirPods. My personal bet is a simple ‘Apple Headphones’ branding, but that’s based purely on speculation.

What do you think Apple will name its pair of headphones? Let us know in the poll below and offer up other suggestions in the comments, upvoting your favorites.

Inside the iPhone Repair Ecosystem: Where Do Replacement Parts Come From and Can You Trust Them?
There's a thriving market for unofficial, aftermarket iPhone parts, and in China, there are entire massive factories that are dedicated to producing these components for repair shops unable to get ahold of parts that have been produced by Apple.

The entire Apple device repair ecosystem is fascinating, complex, and oftentimes confusing to consumers given the disconnect between Apple, Apple Authorized Service Providers, third-party factories, and independent repair shops, so we thought we'd delve into the complicated world of Apple repairs.

The Aftermarket Factories

Our exploration of the repair ecosystem was inspired by a video sent to us by a trusted source that MacRumors has worked with in the past, who captured footage inside one of the many facilities in China that are dedicated to creating aftermarket iPhone parts.

This is a small scale operation where workers appear to be creating an aftermarket touch screen digitizer for the iPhone, a thin plastic component that attaches to the LCD through a flex cable and allows physical touch on the screen to be transformed into digital input, allowing the iPhone's processor to translate your touch into system commands.

*SNIP!* Ful article below. VERY informative! I haven't finished reading it myself as it's quite lengthy.

Hackity-hack-hack! :twisted: May na "compromise" kayang pr0nz stash na Apple ID? :bigmouth:

Apple says no customer information involved in hack by Australian teen
Apple on Friday commented on recent revelations that an Australian teen gained unauthorized access to its corporate computer network, saying the hack did not compromise customer data despite reports claiming the boy accessed customer accounts.

On Thursday, The Age reported a 16-year-old Melbourne boy, whose name is not being made public because he is a juvenile, conducted a series of attacks on Apple's computer systems over the course of a year.

In all, the hacker collected some 90 gigabytes of secure files and accessed customer accounts, according to court statements. The teen lodged a guilty plea when in Children's Court on Thursday.

Apple security personnel "discovered the unauthorized access, contained it, and reported the incident to law enforcement," a company spokesman told Reuters on Friday.

"We ... want to assure our customers that at no point during this incident was their personal data compromised," the spokesman said.

According to The Age, Apple notified the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation upon discovering the hack, and the law enforcement body handed the case over to the Australian Federal Police.

A raid of the boy's suburban home last year yielded two Apple laptops, a mobile phone and a hard drive associated with the hack. According to statements heard in court, the serial numbers of the laptops and the mobile phone's IP address matched those of devices that accessed Apple's systems.

While details of the intrusion are at this point unknown, the teen was reportedly able to remotely access Apple's secure network through highly protected "authorized keys" and software installed on at least one laptop. Over the course of a year, the boy gleaned some 90GB of data from Apple's servers, which was subsequently stored in a file named "hacky hack hack."

Media is just now learning about the hack thanks to the teen's court appearance. Apple was said to be "very sensitive about publicity" regarding the incident and successfully kept word of the case out of the public eye.

I would advice uninstalling / removing the said apps / programs from your device. Inalis ko agad yung Dr. Cleaner sa akin pagkabasa. He he...


Additional Mac App Store apps caught stealing and uploading browser history
[Update 9/9 7:46 pm PT: The apps discussed in this article have been removed from the Mac App Store.]

When you give an app access to your home directory on macOS, even if it’s an app from the Mac App Store, you should think twice about doing it. It looks like we’re seeing a trend of Mac App Store apps that convince users to give them access to their home directory with some promise such as virus scanning or cleaning up caches, when the true reason behind it is to gather user data – especially browsing history – and upload it to their analytics servers.

Today, we’re talking specifically about the apps distributed by a developer who claims to be “Trend Micro, Inc.”, which include Dr. Unarchiver, Dr. Cleaner and others. This issue was reported before by a user on the Malwarebytes forum, and in another report. Other researchers followed up and found that apps distributed by this “Trend Micro, Inc.” account on the Mac App Store collect and upload the user’s browser history from Safari, Google Chrome and Firefox to their servers. The app will also collect information about other apps installed on the system. All of this information is collected upon launching the app, which then creates a zip file and uploads it to the developer’s servers.

We were able to confirm these reports, at least with the Dr. Unarchiver app. After extracting a zip file with the app, it offered an option to “Quick Clean Junk Files”. Selecting “Scan” launched an open dialog with the home directory selected, this is how the app gets access to a user’s home directory, which it needs in order to collect the history files from browsers. After allowing access to the home directory, the app proceeded to collect the private data and upload it to their servers (we blocked that with a proxy). Scroll down for screenshots.

Inspecting the files the app archives and uploads to their servers revealed the full browser history for Safari, Google Chrome and Firefox, separate files specifically dedicated to storing the user’s recent Google searches on the same browsers and a file containing a complete list of all apps installed on the system, including information about where they were downloaded from, whether they are 64-bit compatible and their code signature.

As of today, “Dr. Unarchiver” is the nº 12 most popular free app in the US Mac App Store. This is a massive privacy issue and we expect Apple to pull these apps from the Mac App Store fairly quickly. Users do not expect sandboxed apps to get this level of access to their systems, but it is important to note that when an open file dialog is opened by a sandboxed app, if you use it to open your home directory, the app can potentially get access to lots of private information including browsing history, iMessage conversations, e-mail messages and more. Apple is improving this situation with macOS Mojave, but the App Store review process should have caught these practices and rejected the apps for violating the user’s privacy.

The technique adopted by the apps discussed here is very similar to what Adware Doctor did. If you want to protect yourself from these types of issues, never give an app – even from the App Store – access to your home directory, this can happen if the app pops up an open file dialog and you open your home directory with it, or if you drag your home directory into the app.

^^^ OK yung mga new features ng Apple Watch Series 4. :) Very useful lalo na sa mga may heart condition.


For those waiting for the new iPhones, this video explains the differences between the Xr and Xses (or features you might be missing from the higher-end ones). Though personally, if only the Xr's screen had a better pixel density, I'd get the 128GB version of that.






And for a "less fanboy" video. :lol:
