Murus 1.4.11 Local Privilege Escalation
# I recently blogged about the prevalence of escalation hijack vulnerabilities amongst macOS applications. One example of this is the latest version of Murus
# firewall. By design it requires the user to authenticate every time in order to obtain the access it needs to modify the firewall settings.
 
# If a local attacker or malware is running as an admin user (ie has write access to /Applications/) they can subvert this process to silently obtain root access
# without the user knowing.
