mojave historical flaw A flaw discovered on macOS Mojave allows you to spy on the history of Safari

A security flaw concerning Safari browsing history was discovered in the Mojave 10.14 version of macOS, reports Jeff Johnson.

Jeff Johnson, the source of the discovery, reports that Mojave normally grants special access to the Safari browsing history on the Mac Finder. However, he would have discovered a flaw allowing malicious applications to access the folder of this history ~ / Library / Safari without having to request authorization from the user or the system beforehand.

In other words, this flaw would allow malicious applications to spy on web browsing history.

This is not a huge problem in itself, the flaw being only applicable to applications downloaded from the web and therefore, that the user will have authorized. Indeed, those from the app store are not affected by this discovery.

Jeff Johnson relates that he sent all the details of this flaw to the Apple teams. It only remains to wait for a fix to be made.
