A security expert creates undetectable malware on Mac OS X

malware on Mac OS X
Macs are no longer the island of security that wanted to believe as they were. Malware exist on Mac OS X and start being more numerous. One researcher even found a "simple" way to make them undetectable. In April 2012, the Flashback botnet began to hurt the feeling of invulnerability of the Mac community, which for years had felt safe from viruses and other malware.

Sign of changing times, as related to an increase in market share to Apple’s professional cybercriminals. Cyber attacks seeking the best return on investment or, indeed, the apple computers often tend to be chosen by the target value. Since new malware for Mac OS X have succeeded without causing much damage as Flashback, but demonstrating every time the fortress "breathtaking" was no longer or had never been.

There are some days, Daniel Pistelli, a security researcher for Cerbero German company, announced that they had obtained a proof of concept with important consequences. It would be possible of creating undetectable malware on Mac OS X, as well as the system for any security solutions.

 To do this, they used one of the tools that Apple has built into Mac OS X and is used to encrypt the executable houses like Dock.app or Finder.app to protect. However, this encryption can equally well be used to "protect" the executable malware, he said in a post on his company blog. Security software is then unable to detect because it is encrypted - even if they were able to recognize before.

To provide a solution to the proof of concept that has unveiled Daniel Pistelli advanced in his post several tracks. The first implies that the virus include a decryption mechanism in order to recognize new malware. The second that these security systems try to find numerical code segments, and if they are, do not trust only executables that are signed by Apple itself. Finally, the third solution in the event of a discovery of encrypted code, antivirus allow only executable whose cryptographic signature matches a trusted key

App crash frequently for Apple's iPhone 5s

Apps runs in the iPhone 5s are not stable? Is it due to iOS 7? Or the new 64 -bit processor or the apps itself? According to a study overthrow apps on the iPhone 5s at any rate twice as often as they do on the iPhone 5c and iPhone 5. According to U.S. reports, the study of analytics and monitoring company Crittercism found that apps crash on the new iPhone 5s twice as often as on the iPhone 5c and iPhone 5. 

In the evaluation of several hundred million apps supposedly turned out that the percentage of crashed apps in Apple's iPhone 5s of approximately 2 percent. The proportion of an app crash on iPhone 5 and iPhone 5c, however, is reported to range from around 1 percent. A possible reason for the frequent crashes, the analysts see the 64 -bit combination of iOS 7 and A7 processor in the iPhone 5s.

Apparently, some developers had tested their apps rather late in this regard and not yet optimized respectively and adjusted. Overall, Apple is in the transition to 64 -bit system, but well done, it says in Crittercism. Previously in forums and on YouTube we heard a lot already numerous case studies to complete system crashes like “Blue Screen of Death “at Apple's iPhone 5s for attention. Apparently, Apple is aware of the problem and is working on relief. Apple has now released two iOS updates for iOS 7 and the update to iOS 7.0.3 should be followed shortly with further bug fixes.

6 Great iPhone 5S/iPhone 5C Accessories

Apple's release of the iPhone 5S and 5C not only introduced two impressive new smartphones to the world, but brought a new generation of accessories along with them to protect and enhance them. With the holiday season upon us, here are six must-have iPhone 5S and 5C accessories, and a few ways on how to save money when shopping for them:

​Apple iPhone 5S Dock

The iPhone 5 introduced us all to Apple's new Lighting connector – a great advance in charging/data relaying technology, but something that rendered many people's accessories and extra cords useless. They released an official adapter that worked with most accessories last fall, but until the announcement of the iPhone 5S and 5C, users with a Lightning device were without the option of an official Apple charging dock. Now, shoppers can enjoy safely charging their iPhone 5, 5S and 5C on an official dock charger, a sleekly-designed product that locks the iPhone in a sturdy, secure position while charging. When buying one, don't forget to bring a Best Buy promo code with you!
Mophie Juice Pack Plus A
vailable in three different colors, the Morph Juice Pack Plus (compatible with both the iPhone 5, 5S and 5C) is Morph's signature external battery case. It's sleek, slim design protects phones from everyday nicks and scratches with its shockproof band - and provides a lot of extra power, thanks to a battery with 120% the capacity of the iPhone's own (at less than 100% of the retail price, when shopping with a Newegg coupon), adding another 10 hours of talk time and hundreds of standby time.

A Gloves

Touchscreen-friendly winter gloves don't have to be expensive, despite what many retailer's offerings would have one think. A Gloves are an affordable (easily found between $10-15 at most places), work with all ten fingers thanks to their patented – and most importantly, will always keep a smartphone/tablet, even in the coldest months of the year.
Apple TV
A thoroughly underrated device, Apple TV is an extremely affordable option for iPhone users looking to stream music, photos, videos, and even games from their phone screen to their TV. With access to Netflix, MLB.TV, HBO Go, Hulu Plus, and dozens of other services, it's not only a hub to access Apple content on one's HDTV (in full 1080p), but any streaming video service one could imagine. It's a great gift for any Apple-using techie in the family- and a surprisingly affordable one at under $100 - even more when using a Adorama promo code during the holiday shopping season.

Otterbox iPhone 5S/5C

Over the years, we've tested dozens of different iPhone cases for various devices: and time and time again, we come back to the Otterbox line of smartphone cases, offering extreme protection. With multiple case options all offering the same industry-leading protection, there's no wrong choice to choose from in their extensive product line, a perfect gift for the slightly-reckless teenager getting a new iPhone as a gift this winter.
ZAGG Invisible Shield
Most people buy a case for their phone – but many neglect to protect the most important part of their iPhone 5S: the beautiful Retina display. When it comes to screen protection, there's really only one option anyone needs to consider: the ZAGG Invisible Shield. Designed from technology originally developed to protector the blades on military choppers, the Invisible Shield offers maximum protection and screen visibility at an affordable price (especially when shopping with a Best Buy coupon in hand).

A bonus tip: you don't need a receipt to get a replacement Invisible Shield from the kiosk in the local mall. Just bring the phone: the screen is the only receipt one needs – and it's only $5 to replace the screen, even if the old one's been on there for years.

Choosing a GPS Device Locator That is Right for You

If you have valuable possessions that you want to keep an eye on, you need to invest in a GPS device locator. Device locators help you to receive real time information concerning your valuables’ whereabouts. A variety of GPS tracking devices are available to help you keep track of your possessions. You can attach a device to your possessions and set the device up to send alerts to your smart phone or computer whenever the device leaves a designated area. Some devices come with a camera that displays the real time surroundings of the device on your smart phone or computer. This allows you to always know where your possessions are and what is taking place around them.
Many companies offer GPS devices. It is imperative to do research to assure that the GPS device you buy is best suited for your unique needs.
Company Reputation
Before you invest in a GPS tracker, be sure to first research the reputation of the company that made the device. Look into whether or not the company has a long history of offering high quality products, good customer service, and quality customer feedback. It is important that the company will be around for many years to come so that it can continue to provide you support throughout the life of your device.
Size of Device
Next, decide which device size best suits your needs. A smaller, lightweight device is generally more portable than a larger device and can be used almost anywhere. You can drop it in your child’s backpack, hide it in your computer case that are loaning to a friend, or put it in your teenager’s car. Smaller devices can be attached to more items without being seen. Although there are many advantages of investing in a smaller GPS device, a larger GPS device has many pros, too. Larger devices often offer longer battery life and features like a camera, heat sensor, and motion detector. 
Battery Life of Device
Once you have decided on the size of device that will best suit your needs, you musty decide on battery life. Battery life varies among GPS trackers, but most units tend to work for at least a week before needing a recharge if they are used for about two hours per day. If you want your device to protect your possessions for a longer length of time between charges, you may want to consider more powerful devices and machines equipped with power saving modes.
Service Fees
If you do not need real time reporting from your GPS tracker, you may be able to save money on monthly service fees by opting for a tracking device that provides you with a data logger rather than real time reporting. It is important to weigh the pros and cons of real time reporting before deciding whether or not to invest in a device with service fees.
Whichever GPS device locator you choose, you are sure to experience greater peace of mind knowing that your most prized possessions are being securely monitored.

The iMac is the first computer to take full advantage of Wi -Fi 802.11ac . MacBook Air 2013 already provides support for this standard, but the fact that has only two antennas, they are not able to reach the theoretical bandwidth of 1.3 Gb / s.

And as shown in the capture and it managed to get a theoretical speed transmission 1300 Mb / s.The tests were conducted in a relatively overloaded in terms of Wi-Fi routers middle and got to hang this famous figure with the iMac near the AirPort Base Station. Both devices were a meter away.

Still, the transmission speed displayed was extremely unstable and most cases ranged between 867 Mb / s and 1300 Mb / s.We have not seen improvements with the tests that we carried out with the MacBook Air Haswell. And this is a surprise for us. In the best case, we have peaks at 60 MB / s (480 Mb / s). With MacBook Air, you already got similar numbers. Ethernet, on the same network, we get in the best case speeds twice as good. Still, the difference with the 802.11n Wi-Fi is pretty significant. We conducted tests of raw performance with WiFiPerf utility. And the difference in rates observed between 2013 iMac and MacBook Air 2012 ( therefore in 802.11n Wi-Fi ) is more than clear. The first is on average two times faster than the second.

How to use iCloud space effectively

If you're a MobileMe user, you may receive regular emails from Apple asking you to reduce your storage space or to hand the wallet in an effective way. Few little useful information to quickly gain a few things up and handle the situation. You can work on your iCloud space from your Mac.

Just go to System Preferences, select iCloud, and then click Manage. On an iOS device, go to Settings, then to iCloud, then Storage / Backup and Manage Storage. The Backup section is certainly the most interesting. The thing is not known to all, but iCloud keeps a backup (for the back up the option should have enabled previously) all your iOS devices. In other words, it is not possible that you have in the cloud backups of iOS devices that you no longer own. The other one that can take up much space is they is backups itself.

To analyze the contents of a backup, you must look on each iOS device of which data are stored. For the "snapshot" of a backup, go to iCloud, Storage / Backup and Storage and select Manage your iOS device that you have in your hands. To avoid getting too big backup, consider empty it regularly. On the other hand, you can also uncheck items for which a backup is not absolutely necessary. The other one majorly occupies the storage is the mails. Apple suggests deleting messages from Trash and Junk folders.

The other solution is to archive old messages on the computer. To do this, just launch Mail, go to the Mailbox menu and select New Mailbox. Choose the location “On My Mac” and name the folder that will host your email iCloud. You can then select all the messages you want to archive, then go to the Message menu and select Move to. You do then is to choose the folder you created.

The transfer may take some time more. Note and it is logical that the emails in question will no longer be in the "cloud” and you cannot access it from your iPhone. Hence you have to sorting it through the applications. Then you do the cleaning in your applications you use with iCloud. If you use applications like Pixelmator or Preview with iCloud, you can quickly reach large numbers for storage. You can do, by selecting an application, select all the files stored or go case by case. Also remember to remove your cloud documents created by apps that you no longer need. To determine whether your efforts are paying off, do not hesitate to consult the gauge which is at the bottom of the dashboard iCloud.

How and why to clone your Mac Hard drive

A clone is a bootable backup of your Mac’s hard drive which provides idleness for both your data and the Macintosh Operating system. The cloning process is used to save the important data and files which you never want to lose. If you have any important personal data and you want to take back up for that file, cloning is used. You can keep your backup in various forms like Image, clone etc.., in case of system crash or if you lose any data, clone helps you roll back your Mac OS X installation.

Cloning requirements

The main requirement is that if you create clone, then the size of the destination should be larger or equal. This cloning process erases all the data in the destination drive where you want to backup your data and then copies the entire file from the source file, and then makes the clone drive bootable. You can use both internal and external drive for clone. Intel Macs can boot from external FireWire or by USB drives.

Cloning with stellar drive clone 

To clone your Mac’s drive there are so many utilities available. In that the oldest and most popular one is Stellar Drive Clone. If you want to clone your Mac safely then the best method is cloning with Stellar drive clone. This clones your Mac hard disk with the help of some advanced and highly reliable mechanism which protect your data safely. This software allows you to clone the entire hard disk to another disk or particular folder to another folder, or files. You can create an exact sector by sector image of your Mac and saves this image at any desired location.


1. This creates an exact mirror image of your Mac hard drive to another drive.

2. The clone drives will be formatted with MBR (Master Boot Record) partition map scheme.

3. It supports solid state drives and exFAT formatted drives.

4. Clone your volume to another volume and also folder, files etc..,

Most of the people want to keep their backups in time machine. Time machine arrives is unbootable but it contains multiple versions of your files. The most common issues with the time machines are listed below.

 Issues with time machine:

1. Backup is not bootable: Even though time machines backup all the data and files on your disk. In case of internal HD fails, then you can’t boot directly from your time machine backups

2. It doesn’t keep data forever: time machine generally doesn’t saves it’s changed or deleted files ever. It doesn’t show even the notification when the files it’s containing is deleted.

3. Doesn’t compress files: since it doesn’t store duplicate copies of file, it does not compress the Mac files.
