Transcript of "Kaspersky Anti-Virus for Macintosh - Technical Presentation"

  1. 1. Vartan Minasyan
  2. 2. Product  idea • Company’s  mission:  Protec5on  for  all  customers,  regardless  of   pla:orm • New  product  for  consumer  product  por:olio • Kaspersky  An5  Virus  is  there  to  strengthen  Mac  security  for  users   that  realise  the  value  of  the  data  on  their  PCs  to  cybercriminals • We  are  only  adding  protec5on  where  there  is  an  iden5fied   significant  benefit  over  the  standard  Apple  security
  3. 3. What  is  the  need • Apple  have  done  an  adequate  job  of  soIware  security  for  a  non-­‐ specialist  company • Users  have  benefited  from  the  rela5ve  obscurity  of  Macs  compared   to  PCs  making  them  a  less  lucra5ve  target  for  cybercriminals • Apple’s  success  in  growing  market  share  has  been  reflected  with   increased  interest  from  cybercriminals • It’s  Kaspersky’s  business  to  understand  the  techniques  of   cybercriminals  and  protect  our  customers,  we  are  very  good  at  it.
  4. 4. The threat
  5. 5. The  threat • PC  +  Macintosh  =  good  connec5vity • Your  Apple  Macintosh  may  not  be  damaged  by   some  malware,  although  it  may  slow  your  Mac   down • But...  you  can  s5ll  pass  on  problems  to  users  of   other  types  of  computers • Sharing  resources  or  communica5ng  with  you  could   endanger  their  systems
  6. 6. Good  PC/MAC  ci5zenship In wn te loa do rn et ds Mac OS X E-mail & IM File transfers USB IM US & Bs ail m tic E- k
  7. 7. PC/Mac  threat  summary Malware  could  be  get  through:   • Internet  downloads,  E-­‐mail,  IM • Files  you  copy  to  the  Mac • Shared  folder  of  other  virtualized  OS With  Mac  OS  X,  no  PC-­‐Mac  communica5on  borders: • File  formats  are  compa5ble • Common  network  protocols • Almost  always  on  the  same  network,  sharing  drives   and  folders
  8. 8. Some  Mac-­‐related  malware  facts • The  Twier  account  belonging  to  venture  capitalist  and  Mac  evangelist  Guy  Kawasaki  was   hijacked  yesterday  [June]  and  used  to  push  malware  to  some  140,000  Twier  users. (Source  ZD  Net,  June  2009) • “We  recently  discovered  that  a  small  number  -­‐  less  than  1%  -­‐  of  the  Video  iPods  available   for  purchase  aIer  September  12,  2006,  leI  our  contract  manufacturer  carrying  the   Windows  RavMonE.exe  virus.”.  (Source  hp://www.apple.com/support/windowsvirus/) • “Trojan  Horse  can  be  found  in  pirated  copies  of  Apple’s  iWork  ‘09  applica5on  suite,  which   has  been  downloaded  over  20,000  5mes”  (Source  MacWorld  Jan  2009) • A  ZDNet  summary  of  2007  vulnerabili5es  showed  that  there  were  five  5mes  more   vulnerabili5es  for  Mac  OS  than  for  all  types  of  Windows  PC  opera5ng  systems.
  9. 9. There  are  viruses! New malware created specifically for Mac OS every year 35 30 There is 1 new Trojan every week for Mac OS 25 20 15 10 5 0 2001 2002 2003 2004 2005 2006 2007 2008 2009 -5

  11. 11. Apple  ads  vs  reality On one side, funny ads with “Infected PC” On the other side, quotes from Apple’s website: “Mac OS X doesn’t get PC viruses” And, Apple  itself,  officially   acknowledged  the  role  of  an5-­‐virus   soIware  for  the  first  5me  in  its  latest   OS  X  Security  Configura5on  Guide   released  in  May,  and  even  provides  a   link  to  a  list  of  third-­‐party  suppliers.
