I imagine many in #infosec will conclude the ends justify the means, and I imagine most Apple users won't care, but I still think silently pushing non-interactive 3rd-party app updates to consumer devices is creepy: techcrunch.com/2019/07/10/appl


@kyle They didn’t modify the app (that would be creepy), they pushed a new signature into OSX’s malware detector that disabled it (which is less creepy). By most definitions, Zoom’s mac app *was* malware. The fact that Apple has the ability to arbitrarily block the use of software without giving users an override is a problem, but it’s a step below being able to arbitrarily patch an app.
