Unpatched Critical Flaw Affects Apple MacOS Computers

Cybersecurity experts published details of an unpatched zero-day vulnerability in macOS Finder that could be abused by remote third-parties to trick users into running arbitrary commands on the machines. According to SSD Secure Disclosure, a security issue in macOS Finder allows files whose extension is inetloc to execute arbitrary commands. The vulnerability is caused by the manner macOS processes INETLOC files — shortcuts to open internet locations such as RSS feeds, Telnet connections, or other online resources and local files — resulting in a scenario that allows commands embedded in those files to be executed without any warning.
