New “in-memory injection” Attack Found for Max OS X
Vincenzo Iozzo, a security researcher from Italy, has found a new method to inject malware into a computer's memory running OS X operating system from Apple. This technique is one that makes detection of Mac attacks more difficult for investigators using modern forensics practices.
While the technique, known as "in-memory injection", might be accomplished, there is no clue left on the computer's hard disk as well as no new process is created. This is possible because the entire exploitation takes place in memory.
However, attacks with this technique are still detectable, according to Iozzo. He explained that security experts could discard the virtual memory and spot the attack with the help of a network intr...
