Apple intentionally created a security breach in macOS Big Sur

  • In Big Sur Apple decided to exempt many of its apps from being routed thru the frameworks they now require 3rd-party firewalls to use (LuLu, Little Snitch, etc.)

Q: Could this be (ab)used by malware to also bypass such firewalls?


A: Apparently yes, and trivially so.

This is getting to be seriously concerning, first we read about BS collecting personal data of it's users and possible spying, now this. BS is turning out to be a Big Surprise. :(

People who want to know what apps and processes are exempt can open the macOS terminal and enter sudo defaults read /System/Library/Frameworks/NetworkExtension.framework/Resources/Info.plist ContentFilterExclusionList.
