The App Store on #macOS 13.2 sends detailed usage data and analytics to Apple. All interactions are associated with the user's iCloud ID, or dsid. This happens even when you turn off sharing usage data and analytics.
(1/6) 👇
#Privacy #InfoSec
The App Store on the latest version of macOS (13.2) behaves identically to what we demonstrated on iOS 14.6. This gives a clue that almost certainly the same happens on iOS 16.2. Recap of what iOS 14.6 sends:

Here's an example of the analytics sent when I search for "Holy Moly" on the App Store. Everything is logged and associated with the user's iCloud ID, even when you play a video of an app and click on the unmute button. Data collected can identify a user personally.

As a Laravel Dev who consistently uses Macs, here's a 🧵 of little tips I have for you when using the command line

#macos #laravel #symfony #phpc
1. If you need to find a command you previously used CTRL + R will let you search for old commands in your ~/.zsh_history file.
2. To move quickly left and right on the CLI, hold the ALT key with the arrow keys and it will force the cursor left and right to the next white space in the command.

I’m so glad to announce that the computational model I developed during my PhD is now a stand-alone software and has recently passed the strict review process of my favorite journal, Journal of #OpenSource Software 🤩…
Let me explain it a bit 👇
BioDeg is an #opensource cross-platform software written in #FreeFEM, C++, and Python for modeling the degradation of metallic #biomaterials and simulating the #biodegradation behavior of medical devices and #implants in #corrosion experiments.
The necessity and the details of the computational model of #biodegradable materials, which does the main simulation behind the scene, are already discussed in this Twitter thread, so make sure to have a look at it if you like to know more 🤓

It’s time to start a #WWDC Wishlist Mega Thread. Here we go, will keep adding things until the event.
1. iOS 16: Add new languages in Apple Translate. I can hope for Indian languages, especially Hindi, but I think they have a long list before reaching there.
2. Wider rollout for Apple Pay, hopefully we get it in India as well. Indian market is quickly shifting towards Tap to Pay, and the government is encouraging digital payments more than any other country. Apple Pay would be a great addition.

In Jan. 1997 I was 15 and obsessed with computers. My family happened to be in San Francisco and we drove by Moscone Center where I saw banners proclaiming that MacWorld Expo was happening. The pic is me around that time 🙂

A short thread ⬇️

#RetroComputing #Apple #Mac #macOS
I made a sign on a pizza box reading "SPARE MACWORLD PASS?" I only stood outside for ~10 minutes before a nice woman in a business suit gave me her pass and said "tell anyone who questions you that I'm your mom!" I went in and spent a joyful day exploring the exhibit hall.
1997 was a tumultuous time in @apple's history and for the #Mac / #macOS platform, as evidenced by San Francisco being blanketed in militaristic / revolutionary posters defending the small (but feisty!) ecosystem of Mac clones

In T3 2021, #ESETtelemetry saw a decline in all detections of monitored #macOS threats by 5.9%, compared to T2. The biggest drop was seen towards the end of December 2021, probably attributed to various festivities around the world. 🎅🕎 #ESETresearch 1/4
The decline was visible in nearly all monitored categories – Potentially Unwanted Applications (-22.5%), Adware (-10.6%) and trojans (-6.2%). Only Potentially Unsafe Applications saw a negligible uptick in T3. 2/4
While overall lower detection numbers could be seen as something positive, more than 36% of all macOS threats ESET detected in T3 were trojans and overall macOS Trojan detections rose by 126% from 2020 to 2021. 3/4

I wanted to add a meme to the blogpost but apparently you simply can't do that...
Apparently @_r3ggi found very similar issues in parallel to my findings, it's interesting to see the different approaches to TCC bypass bughunting.

Incredibly happy that our @RoboStack paper has been accepted to the @ieeeras Robotics & Automation Magazine 🥳. @RoboStack brings together #ROS @rosorg with @condaforge and @ProjectJupyter. Preprint: Find out some key benefits in this 🧵: 1/n
You can now easily use ROS (both ROS1 #Noetic and ROS2 #Galactic) on a wide range of platforms: @linuxfoundation (not just a specific Ubuntu, any Linux!), @Apple #MacOS and @Microsoft @Windows - even on ARM processors including the new M1 (work still in progress, though). 2/n
Thanks to the tight coupling to @condaforge, this enables you to (very easily) install ROS side-by-side with thousands of scientific libraries, including recent #computervision and #machinelearning ones (think @TensorFlow, @opencvlibrary, @PyTorch and more). 3/n

What technologies should every #OSINT professional know? Python? Basic Linux terminal skills? Maltego?

Lots of things...

But I think it's definitely worth actively using advanced search operators at ALL STAGES of work.

7 types of advanced search operators. Thread🧵
Let's start with productivity issues.

Type 1

Search operators for mailbox
(#Gmail, #Outlook, #Yahoo, #Yandex)

for quick filtering emails by date, recipient name, attachment type and size, filename and other parameters.

(All links to the docs are at the end of the thread)
Type 2

Search operators for cloud storages

Help quickly navigate through files and sort them by owner name, type, creation date, words in title etc.

Are you on #macOS? Here are some of my favorite #opensource tools I recommend.

🧵 A thread:
🎞 For your goto videoplayer, other than the built-in QuickTime or the classic VLC, you should consider IINA.

It uses mpv under the hood but provides a beautiful, macOS-friendly UI and plays everything you throw at it.
🧹 When your menu bar needs decluttering (and trust me, macOS bars gets cluttered when you have a lot of handy apps) and you feel the urge to hide everything under a carpet, there’s Hidden, an utility that lets you hide menu bar icons.

Those wanting to install two Mac OS systems on the same computer: don’t install in two volumes on same APFS container. Every time I boot in High Sierra it’s corrupting the Big Sur volume, & I had to reinstall. Try installing on two separate partitions. #BigSur #macOS @Apple
@JeffBenjam @9to5mac I tried your method. All went well for 2 weeks as long as I didn’t try to boot from High Sierra. Yesterday I did that. HS gave some error message which people have reported. Sadly when I booted back into Big Sur got a message that I need to reinstall the OS.
I thought may be an accident reinstalled Big Sur and was up and running after the installation. But when I booted to High Sierra and tried to boot back, same error and had to reinstall Big Sur again.

Aaand here it is..!!! 😱

After months of hard work with @jblanchefr, @ClipDropApp beta (AR Copy Paste) is now publicly available on #Android, #iOS, #macOS, and #Windows

🔥 🔥

Here's a thread of what you can already do with it ↓ 1/n

You can capture directly from your desktop with a screenshot and drag & drop to any other app (my favorite feature 🤩)

It works from/to virtually any application & websites: @figmadesign, @Photoshop, @Canva, @Pitch, @Powerpoint, @GoogleDocs...etc!

#ML #Augmented #DesktopOS
You can extract anything: objects, people, drawings, and text. The quality of the salient object detection, background removal, and text detection is now quite incredible 😳😲🤯

You can use arrow keys to move the cursor in macOS Terminal.

Left and right arrow will move left and right by character.

Option-left and right arrow will move by word.

ctrl-A moves to the beginning of the prompt and ctrl-E moves to the end. 1/20

#macOS #Terminal #protip
When you want more memorable Keystrokes you can create your own in the ‘Keyboard’ tab of the ‘Profiles’ area of Terminal Preferences. 2/20

#macOS #Terminal #protip
You can also navigate the Terminal prompt with the mouse pointer: Option-click (⌥-click) in the prompt moves the cursor there. 3/20
