Security Researcher Who Found Password Theft Exploit And Withheld It From Apple Caves

Remember that researcher who found a Exploit in macOS that allows for password theft, and he wasn’t going to hand it over until Apple instituted a bug bounty program for macOS? Well, he caved.

Well, he is doing the right thing as getting Exploits like this off the street is important. But Apple really dropped the ball here as they should have a bug bounty program for macOS. Otherwise, these exploits will simply end up on the dark web and used for evil. While I hope that Apple changes course here, I really don’t expect them to as they clearly have lost the plot when it comes to the security of their platform.
