Your Mac computer running the Apple’s latest High Sierra operating system can be hacked by tweaking just two lines of code, a researcher demonstrated at the Def Con security conference on Sunday.
Patrick Wardle, an ex-NSA hacker and now Chief Research Officer of Digita Security, uncovered a critical zero-day vulnerability in the macOS operating system that could allow a malicious application installed in the targeted system to virtually “click” objects without any user interaction or consent.
To know, how dangerous it can go, Wardle explains: “Via a single click, countless security mechanisms may be completely bypassed. Run untrusted app? [...]

Dubbed Man-in-the-Disk, the attack takes advantage of the way Android apps utilize ‘External Storage’ system to store app-related data, which if tampered could result in code injection in the privileged context of the targeted application.
