Extra! Extra! Read Nothing About It! (Latest on Apple V. Maynor)

In “SecureWorks Backs Out of Macbook Demo,” Brian Krebs writes:

David Maynor, the SecureWorks researcher who was set to demonstrate how wireless driver flaws could be used to compromise an Apple Mac laptop, suddenly has been yanked from the ranks of Toorcon presenters.

At around 12:50 p.m. PT, SecureWorks issued the following press release:

“SecureWorks and Apple are working together in conjunction with the CERT Coordination Center on any reported security issues. We will not make any additional public statements regarding work underway until both companies agree, along with CERT/CC, that it is appropriate.”
