Objective-See – OS X Malware Research

Objective-See

Patrick Wardle‘s OS X security site described as:

As Macs become more prevelant, so does OS X malware. Unfortunately, current Mac security and anti-virus software is fairly trivial to generically bypass.

Objective-See was created to provide simple, yet effective OS X security tools. Always free of charge – no strings attached!

I don’t see news about OS X malware very often but following @patrickwardle and authors seen there will cure that problem.

Macs may be popular in current regime in Washington, among those not using:

etch-a-sketch-460

😉

BTW, since an Etch-a-Sketch uses aluminum powder, has anyone checked the concealment properties of an Etch-a-Sketch?

That is would the aluminum powder block scanners and if so, how well?

Asking for a friend of course! 😉

PS: In case you need an Etch-A-Sketch for research purposes, http://etchasketch.com/.

As the aluminum powder is removed by the stylus, blocking of EMF would go down. Making me wonder about online drawing games for the Etch-A-Sketch that would have the user removing the EMF barrier in close proximity to the computer.

Extracting any information would be a challenge but then releasing viruses in the wild to attack secure nuclear facilities relies on luck as well.
