Keep Gatekeeper Locked

Post by Stephen Hart » Wed Jul 06, 2016 9:37 pm

From AppleInsider:
A new piece of Mac-targeting malware is in the wild, potentially allowing hackers to remotely execute code and even control the FaceTime camera on a user's computer, but Apple's own Gatekeeper security prevents the unsigned app from being installed. ... -protected

Moral of the story: Don't defeat Gatekeeper on OS X (or macOS). It's trivial to allow apps to be opened when you know you want the app.
