New Mac Malware Abuses Recently Disclosed Gatekeeper Zero-Day

puddingebola writes: In May, security researcher Filippo Cavallarin made public a vulnerability in macOS’s Gatekeeper. The vulnerability can allow an attacker to use a symlink and an NFS server to bypass Gatekeepers authentication and run malicious code. The malware has been named OSX/Linker and has been tied to the same group that operates the OSX/Surfbuyer adware. All macOS versions are affected, including the latest 10.14.5, and Apple has yet to release a patch to this day, a full month after Cavallarin’s public disclosure.
