Malware authors trick Apple into trusting malicious Shlayer apps

Cyber Defense

The authors of the Mac malware known as Shlayer have successfully managed to get their malicious payloads through Apple's automated notarizing process.

Since February 2020 all Mac software distributed outside of its Mac App Store must be notarized by Apple to be able to run on macOS Catalina and above.

The notarization process requires developers to submit software they built for the macOS platform to be scanned through Apple's notary service, an automated system designed to scan submitted software for both malicious components and code-signing issues.

If they pass this automated security check, the apps are allowed by the macOS Gatekeeper - a macOS security feature that checks if downloaded apps have been checked for known malicious content - to run on the system.

As commercial and enterprise software developers become more disciplined about keeping their open source software components updated to reduce the risk of software supply chain attacks, the bad guys are getting craftier: Researchers warn that they're over-running open source projects to turn them into malware distribution channels.

It used to be that attackers simply preyed on existing vulnerabilities within well-used open source components, with the understanding they could victimize the many organizations relying on outdated dependencies. Attackers are now more frequently getting proactive by infiltrating open source projects to seed them with compromised components that they can pounce on once they're downloaded and used by unsuspecting organizations.
