Can RAT infected OS/IOS devices be salvaged (and will complacency lead to the demise of Apple)?
What do you do when a company like Apple continues to assert that their devices cannot be infected by malware, or that code injected hacks are simply not possible, despite evidence such as Google's Project Zero's of vulnerabilities at the kernel level in OS X? As CEO of an organization targeted by actors within China following a three year collaboration with a major industry group in that country, my home office Macs (3), IPhones (3) and IPad's (2) were targeted three months ago. We regularly experience devices powering on, fake apps appearing on desktops, surreptitious recording of video and audio, disconnected phones or jammed mute buttons during critical phone calls over cellular, resident malware that redirect to rogue sites via G.MSNxxxx, or jsxxx.jumpstationxxx, fake SSID connections named the same as current wi-fi, the occasional display of Chinese text or ads featuring the red flag, etc.--that persist despite hard drive replacements and multiple reinstallations of OS X an IOS 8, and over 20 contacts with support staff. Apple continues to deny despite evidence to the contrary that such things are possible, as does ATT who places the blame on Apple and absolves themslelf of any responsibility. Am I left with a heap of aluminum and plastic, or can these RATs, APTs be exterminated?
