Vulnerability in Apple Computers detected


http://money.cnn.com/2015/06/03/technology/mac-bug/index.html?iid=ob_homepage_tech_pool&iid=obnetwork


Pedro Vilaca, an independent computer security researcher discovered a vulnerability, or bug, that would allow an attacker to be able to access an Apple computer undetected.  The vulnerability is present as an Apple computer wakes up from sleep mode.  At that time, the computer code known as the BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) becomes susceptible.  It’s rumored that only big business, government, financial systems, and news agencies would be targeted and not the average consumer.  This type of flaw would be primarily exploited for long term monitoring.
