Many thanks to everyone who contributed, whether through pull requests, or by filing issues or by joining in the discussion in the #installomator channel on the Mac Admins Slack.
In my session at MacSysAdmin conference in Gothenburg last week, I announced that the name of this weekly news summary will be changing to “MacAdmins.news“.
macOS MetaStealer | New Family of Obfuscated Go Infostealers Spread in Targeted Attacks
The rise of macOS infostealers continues with the latest entrant aiming to compromise business environments with targeted social engineering lures.
Why the change? This news summary has taken on a life of its own from my main Scripting OS X blog. I had been thinking it deserved a name and domain of its own, for a while, but I couldn’t think of one that I liked. When I realized that MacAdmins.news was available and I checked in with the MacAdmins Foundation if they would mind me using it.
I had already been double-posting to the new website for a few weeks to make sure that everything is working. Over the next few weeks, I will be updating everything else. Slowly and carefully, I don’t want to disrupt anything too badly.
If you are receiving this news summary by email and have mail rules by subject or sender you may have to update them, but I will announce the changes here before they take effect in the emails.
