Apple Wi-Fi Flaw Disclosure Takes Bizarre Turn

The bizarre saga involving the discovery and disclosure of WiFi driver vulnerabilities in Apple products continues. After SecureWorks researcher David Maynor revealed that the MacBook has a code execution flaw during the Black Hat conference, Apple decided to remove SecureWorks from the reporting credits concerning its patch. Now comes a statement saying that the two “are working together in conjunction with the CERT Coordination Center on any reported security issues,” which implied that the companies have come to an understanding. There are rumors too that SecureWorks is forbidding Maynor from presenting at the ToorCon conference, where he and independent researcher Jon “Johnny Cache” Ellch are set to “cover the complete story.”
