Microsnitch loopholes

Post by Georgy » Sun Oct 09, 2016 6:46 pm

In a recent attempt to make a website work I installed MS SIlverlight under Firefox. To my great surprise Silverlight was able to turn my facetime camera on (and off) without Microsnitch (v1.2) ever being able to detect the change. Worse, SL can do this and the camera light (green LED next to the camera) stays off too. The Obdev team has meanwhile confirmed that this is possible, is due to a API problem in certain Mac/s and cannot be overcome. I thought you all might want to know.
