New OS X Vulnerability Allows Hackers Gain Root Access Without Password





A developer from Italy named Luca Todesco has recently discovered a new zero-day vulnerability, which lets hackers gain root access in OS X Yosemite without using a password. This vulnerability is similar to the DYLD_PRINT_TO_FILE exploit that has been patched in OS X Yosemite 10.10.5. The developer has reported the vulnerability to Apple, however, it hasn’t been fixed by the guys from Cupertino in the latest update. I honestly hope that Apple developers will react somehow and close a hole in OS X security as soon as possible.

Apple Reportedly Killed 4-inch iPhone 6c to Sell More iPhone 6 Units



According to Timothy Arcuri of Cowen and Company, Apple has initially planned to release a 4-inch iPhone 6c this fall. The decision to halt the development and production of the smaller handset until the next year may be connected with the fact that the 6c can possibly reduce the demand and sales of the iPhone 6, which was released in 2014. It is quite obvious that the guys from Cupertino want to sell as many iPhone 6 and 6 Plus units as possible and releasing a new lower-cost iPhone is definitely not the best way to do this.
