Apple released new updates for most of its software platforms today, including macOS Ventura 13.3, iOS 16.4, iPadOS 16.4, tvOS 16.4, and watchOS 9.4.

These are all feature updates, meaning they actually add new functionality in addition to fixing bugs or addressing security vulnerabilities.

iOS and iPadOS 16.4 add a number of minor features. The headliner is (of course) 21 new emojis, like new heart colors, additional animals, and a shaking head. Beyond that, though, Apple says you'll see improved voice isolation on phone calls, support for notifications from web apps that have been added to your phone's home screen, new ways to weed out duplicates in your Photos library, and a number of bug fixes.

Mac-based virtualization software Parallels launched a new version today. As with most updates to the suite, Parallels Desktop 18 adds support for new Apple hardware features, improves Windows virtualization, and expands compatibility.

The two headlining features of Parallels Desktop 18 are ProMotion support and several new features and optimizations for playing Windows games on Macs.

The first feature is pretty straightforward: Parallels now fully supports automatic refresh rate changes up to 120 Hz, matching the ProMotion feature in the M1-based 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro .

    The world’s second-most popular desktop operating system isn’t macOS anymore / ArsTechnica · Wednesday, 17 February, 2021 - 22:27

Just a few of the Chromebooks we

For ages now, every annual report on desktop operating system market share has had the same top two contenders: Microsoft's Windows in a commanding lead at number one, and Apple's macOS in distant second place. But in 2020, Chrome OS became the second-most popular OS, and Apple fell to third.

That's according to numbers by market data firm IDC, and a report on IDC's data by publication GeekWire. Chrome OS had passed macOS in briefly in individual quarters before, but 2020 was the first full year where Apple's OS took third place.

Despite the fact that macOS landed in third, it might not be accurate to see this as an example of Google beating out Apple directly. Rather, it's likely that Chrome OS has been primarily pulling sales and market share away from Windows at the low end of the market. Mac market share actually grew from 6.7 percent in 2019 to 7.5 percent in 2020.

    Apple M1-native malware has already begun to appear / ArsTechnica · Wednesday, 17 February, 2021 - 18:31 · 1 minute

Last year, Apple released Macbooks and Mac Minis powered by a new ARM CPU—the Apple M1. A few months later, malware authors are already targeting the new hardware directly. Wired interviewed Mac security research Patrick Wardle, who discovered an M1-native version of the long-running, Mac-targeted Pirrit adware family.

Apple M1, malware, and you

ARM CPUs have a very different Instruction Set Architecture (ISA) than traditional x86 desktop and laptop CPUs do, which means that software designed for one ISA can't run on the other without help. M1 Macs can run x86 software with a translation layer called Rosetta, but native M1 apps of course run much faster—as we can see by comparing Rosetta-translated Google Chrome to the M1 native version.

When it comes to malware, Apple users have long benefited from the minority status of their platform. Ten years ago, macOS's operating system market share was only 6.5 percent, and few malware authors bothered to target it at all—but today, that market share is approaching 20 percent. That increase in popularity has brought malware vendors along with it; the macOS malware ecosystem is still tiny and relatively crude compared to the one plaguing Windows, but it's very real.

    Mac utility Homebrew finally gets native Apple Silicon and M1 support / ArsTechnica · Friday, 5 February, 2021 - 21:47

Users can install Homebrew via the Terminal in macOS.

Popular Mac tool Homebrew has long been used by developers and others for package management on macOS, but as we lamented in our first M1 Mac review, it didn't support Apple Silicon when Apple's new Macs first launched late last year. Now, with the release of Homebrew 3.0.0, that's no longer the case: Homebrew now supports Apple Silicon natively, albeit not with every package.

The volunteer Homebrew team made the announcement on the Homebrew blog alongside today's release. While the native support is not yet comprehensive, it bridges the gap significantly, and users can still run Terminal via Rosetta 2 to do what they can't yet while running natively on Apple Silicon. The Homebrew blog post says "we welcome your help" in providing bottles for all packages moving forward.

Here's the full bullet point on Apple Silicon in the Homebrew 3.0.0 release notes:

    Un kext vulnérable pour apprendre à exploiter les OS d’Apple / Korben · Sunday, 31 January, 2021 - 08:00 · 1 minute

Connaissez-vous les kext sous macOS ? Il s’agit des Kernel Extensions… Si je devais prendre un GROS raccourci (On se calme les pinailleurs psychorigides !), je dirais que c’est un peu comme les drivers Windows ou les modules de noyau sous Linux.

Ça se charge avant le chargement complet de l’OS et ça permet d’agir de manière assez bas niveau sur le système. Bref, pour les adeptes du reverse engineering et de l’exploitation de macOS, le kext, c’est le nerf de la guerre.

C’est pourquoi le développeur ant4gonist a mis au point un kext pour iOS / macOS qui contient des vulnérabilités et permet ainsi d’apprendre à exploiter le noyau de macOS / iOS.

Voici les types de vulnérabilités proposées :

#define CRASH             0x1#define HEAP_OVERFLOW     0x2#define INFO_LEAK         0x3#define BUFFER_OVERFLOW   0x4#define USE_AFTER_FREE    0x5   //todo#define INTEGER_OVERFLOW  0x6   //todo#define DOUBLE_FETCH      0x7

La mise en place peut se faire simplement sous macOS, mais également sous iOS en utilisant checkra1n qui permet de jailbreaker l’appareil iOS.

Ensuite, y’a plus qu’à suivre la documentation se trouvant ici pour apprendre à exploiter l’OS proprement.

    Convertir un BIN + CUE en image ISO sous macOS / Korben · Friday, 22 January, 2021 - 08:00

J’ai retrouvé un vieux couple .BIN + .CUE qui peuvent être gravés sur CD mais étant sous Mac et n’ayant pas de graveur sous la main, je me suis dit que j’allais convertir ça en ISO. Voici la procédure, j’ai pensé que ça pourrait service.

Pour cela, je suis passé par Brew et j’ai installé l’utilitaire bchuck :

brew install bchunk

Puis j’ai converti mon BIN + CUE en ISO comme ceci :

bchunk image.bin image.cue image.iso
