Researchers Break Apple’s New MacBook Pro Weeks After Release

A Georgia Tech researcher has successfully evaded security measures on Apple’s latest MacBook Pro with the M3 processor chip to capture his fictional target’s Facebook password and second-factor authentication text.

By the end of his demonstration video, Ph.D. student Jason Kim showed how the recently discovered iLeakage side-channel exploit is still a genuine threat to Apple devices, regardless of how updated their software might be.

First discovered by Kim and Daniel Genkin, an associate professor in the School of Cybersecurity and Privacy, the vulnerability affects all recent iPhones, iPads, laptops, and desktops produced by Apple since 2020.
