Ioshackz.com Macs With Intel Processors And T2 Chip Are Vulnerable To An Unpatchable Exploit A cybersecurity researcher has declared that Macs using Intel processors and T2 chips are vulnerable to an unpatchable security flaw that may provide attackers with root access.
Once an attacker gains access to the T2 chip, they will have the full root access and kernel execution privileges. Although they cannot decrypt files protected by FileVault encryption, the T2 chip manages keyboard access, they can inject keyloggers and steal passwords.
The exploit may also bypass the remote device locking function (Activation Lock) that’s used by services like MDM and FindMy., which means that one can bypass the functionality of locking an Apple device remotely. The firmware password does not alleviate the issue because it requires keyboard access.
It’s recommended that users only need not plug in unverified USB-C devices to avoid related attacks.
