Evading Gatekeeper

John Leyden summarizes, for The Register, Patrick Wardle’s presentation at this week’s Virus Bulletin conference in Prague: his article is called How to evade Apple’s anti-malware Gatekeeper in OS X and really ruin a fanboy’s week. An article for Threatpost by Michael Mimoso  – Apple Gatekeeper Bypass Opens Door for Malicious Code – points out that Wardle:

…has shared his findings with Apple, which is reportedly working on a short-term mitigation until a full patch can be pushed out to users.

The problem is that Wardle’s bypass could require some re-architecting of the operating system to fully address the design weakness being exploited.
