Old, not news. Still awful, but not news.
The WD30EFRX is a Western Digital drive, not a Seagate.
Bill Nye is not a scientist. He only played "The Science Guy" on TV. That was a TV character that he invented.
By training and his early career, he is an engineer.
By fame-driven ego and immersion into an oxygen deprived echo chamber, he is an insufferable leftist.
If Phobos was getting closer to Mars at 6.6 feet per second, then it would be on the surface of Mars in 34 days, not 30 to 50 million years.
The headline mentions SMS, but that isn't involved or even mentioned anywhere in the article. Their POC program sent an SMS through a third-party server.
The "researchers" are trying to sell a competitor to the built in Keychain.
Their proof of concept showed them using an unlocked keychain to add the new key. This lowers the threshold to access the keychain, because it is already unlocked. Keychain Access is buried in the Utility folder that most non-savvy users have no idea that it even exists, so they would be very unlikely to unlock the keychain in this way.
Their malicious app had to be installed around the gatekeeper system. By default the gatekeeper blocks anything that isn't secured with a trusted certificate. It would have to be turned off to install.
In short, this requires a series of dumb actions by the user, most of which are not shown in the POC video.
When you unlock a bunch of doors and invite the thief in for tea, you may find your silver missing.
