Mac Developer: 9to5Mac: Apple iPhone, Mac and iPad News Breaking All Day

9to5Mac: Apple iPhone, Mac and iPad News Breaking All Day: "As noticed by Apfelpage, Apple has published a new page to be more open about why it rejects apps. A chart at the bottom of the page shows the top ten reasons for app rejection in the last seven days; such as lack of information, crashes or bugs encountered, complicated user interfaces."

Mac Developer: BBC News - Gmail smartphone app hacked by researchers

BBC News - Gmail smartphone app hacked by researchers: "This shared memory is used by all apps, and by analysing its use the researchers were able to tell when a user was logging into apps such as Gmail, giving them the opportunity to steal login details and passwords."
Sounds like everyone is going to have zero memory when it's deallocated.

Ah, the benefits of centralized control.

Mac Developer: Confirmed: Security breach is not reason for Gatekeeper app signing changes | 9to5Mac

Confirmed: Security breach is not reason for Gatekeeper app signing changes | 9to5Mac
We’ve now confirmed with sources close to the situation that there is no truth to the rumors and that a Dev Center breach was not the reason behind the Gatekeeper app signing changes.


In other words, it's just a worthless change (read: everybody churn!) aimed at making life difficult for 3rd party ISV's which, unlike Apple, do not have unlimited capital with which to hire engineers, do testing and so forth. Should be very popular with enterprise developers.

Mac Developer: Spies used YouTube videos and Microsoft log-ins to take over devices

Spies used YouTube videos and Microsoft log-ins to take over devices: "The study names Hacking Team and FinFisher as two of the companies that sell law enforcement agencies 'network-injection' technologies like this for around $1 million dollars. In fact, Italian company Hacking Team is known for developing software to spy on people's emails, phone calls and the like specifically for sale to law enforcement in countries not blacklisted by NATO."
Like a blacklist is going to prevent the movement of software!

Mac Developer: Surveillance leak shows spyware loves Android, but can't infect Apple's iPhones without jailbreak

Surveillance leak shows spyware loves Android, but can't infect Apple's iPhones without jailbreak: "The regularly updated software tool supports all releases of Android, devices running BlackBerry OS prior to the newest BB10, Symbian and Windows Mobile phones, but notes that in order to spy on an iPhone, the user must jailbreak their device, a step that disables Apple's security. "
At last, some good news.

Mac Developer: BBC News - US should pay hackers who find threats, says analyst

BBC News - US should pay hackers who find threats, says analyst
Dan Geer said large bounties would prevent the vulnerabilities from ending up in the hands of criminal gangs or hostile authorities.


Have hackers ever been motivated by money?

Mac Developer: 'Canvas fingerprinting' has a new enemy, and its name is Ghostery | VentureBeat | Security | by Richard Byrne Reilly

'Canvas fingerprinting' has a new enemy, and its name is Ghostery | VentureBeat | Security | by Richard Byrne Reilly: "Critically, canvas fingerprinting cannot be blocked by refusing or deleting browser cookies, which is what most tracking tools use. Although canvas fingerprinting works on both desktop and mobile, it thrives in the former, because the technology is older."
All signs point to the browser as the main security vulnerability.

Mac Developer: Master Control Program

Are you sure it's what you want? A centralized control of everything in the system? Such a thing is necessarily brittle. Nothing can stop open systems: like water, it will flow into the future regardless as to the barriers.

Mac Developer: Apple changing Gatekeeper app signing rules in OS X 10.9.5 & Yosemite, could break some apps | 9to5Mac

Apple changing Gatekeeper app signing rules in OS X 10.9.5 & Yosemite, could break some apps | 9to5Mac: "For users, this will add an extra layer of annoyance when dealing with certain third-party apps, especially those downloaded from the web rather than through the Mac App Store."
Pretty soon, dealing with publishing requirements will take more time than developing applications. Great news for crap developers that wrap HTML5 in WebViews!

Mac Developer: BBC News - Wearable users tracked with Raspberry Pi

BBC News - Wearable users tracked with Raspberry Pi: People who use wearable gadgets to monitor their health or activity can be tracked with only $70 (£40) of hardware, research suggests. The work, carried out by security firm Symantec, used a Raspberry Pi computer to grab data broadcast by the gadgets. The snooping Pi was taken to parks and sporting events where it was able to pick out individuals in the crowds.
I'm sure the situation is much worse than you'd expect because embedded systems on these kinds of devices are rarely scrutinized like desktop and mobile operating systems.

Mac Developer: 'BadUSB' malware lives in USB firmware to remain undetected, unfixable

'BadUSB' malware lives in USB firmware to remain undetected, unfixable: "As there is no easy fix to malware like BadUSB, the researchers suggest users adopt a new way of thinking about USB hardware. Instead of thoughtlessly transporting files and other data back and forth between machines, Nohl and Lell recommend connecting only to known devices that are user-owned or trusted. "
Goodbye USB, hello my old friend FireWire.
