Episode 228: Supply Chain Attackery

Most Mac Admins use a device management tool – be it agentless (ie MDM which arguably has a first party agent) or one that uses an agent to provide more capabilities than the MDM protocol does on its own. Recently, we’ve seen a number of attacks that target systems used to keep computers updated and matching security requirements. Today’s episode explores a recent article in Wired about the potential behind supply chain attacks on the Jamf platform – with about the best people you could be having talk about it, people from Jamf!
