Be careful about what you install on a Mac laptop, you may allow a remote attacker to blow it up, literally…
Apple has finally released an OS with security features on par with what other companies are doing, but there are some serious problems with their sexy hardware. They’ve been lazy and careless and the chip that controls the battery can be operated using the default password. That’s bad security practice!
Charlie Miller, a security researcher has demonstrated that it was possible to drain the battery, make it unusable and thinks it’s possible to make it explode.
He will be releasing a solution/patch next month at the Black hat convention.
