Submission + - Hacker publishes notorious Apple Wi-Fi attack (computerworld.com.au)

inkslinger77 writes: "More than a year after claiming to have found a way to take over a Macintosh computer using a flaw in the system's wireless card, David Maynor has finally published details of his exploit. Maynor had been under a nondisclosure agreement, which had previously prevented him from publishing details of the hack, but the NDA is over now and by going public with the information, Maynor hopes to help other Apple researchers with new documentation on things like Wi-Fi debugging and the Mac OS X kernel core dumping facility."
