Perform Situational Awareness Attacks on MacOS, Part 2 [Tutorial] – 100th Episode!
This is Null Byte’s 100th episode of Cyber Weapons Lab!
Establishing situational awareness is how a hacker gathers vital information about an unfamiliar machine they’ve gained access to. In our second piece on situational awareness attacks, based off Tokyoneon’s Null Byte article, we’re going to start to profile what exactly the user can do and what we can find in the system of the macOS device we have access to.
On this episode of Cyber Weapons Lab, what we’re going to be looking for is various types of files using built-in commands in macOS so that we can start digging into what is actually located on this computer we happen to have access to, such as interesting files and the bash history. To follow along, you’ll need to have the access to a MacBook or other macOS computer, and if you get confused, you can also check out the Null Byte article linked in the description. We encourage you to follow Tokyoneon on Twitter because he has a lot of great articles just like this.
