macOS App Can Detect Evil Maid Attacks
Former NSA hacker and current macOS security expert Patrick Wardle has released this week an app named Do Not Disturb that can be used to detect "evil maid" attacks —a term used to describe unknown persons that leverage physical access to hack and steal data from a device.
Version 1.0.0 of the app, which Wardle is releasing through his website, was built explicitly for laptops and works by detecting "lid open" events.
According to Wardle, when Do Not Disturb detects a lid open event, it can take a series of actions, such as displaying a local alert in the hopes of scaring off the intruder; sending an alert to a remote Apple device (iPhone or iPad); logging the attacker's actions (creation of new processes, USB insertions, etc.), or running custom scripts that could wipe the device, disable the USB interfaces, or automatically re-lock the device every few seconds.
The custom scripts are not included with Do Not Disturb, and the user will need to provide or write them himself.

QuickTime Player 7: Goodbye to Apple’s brushed-metal dinosaur | Macworld
The transition from 32- to 64-bit technology means the end to oldies-but-goodies like QuickTime Player 7.
It was minor news last week: In another step along the transition to 64-bit apps, Apple began warning users of 32-bit apps that these apps would need to be updated or they will stop running. The warning was news, but this is actually a story long in the making. Last year, Apple warned Mac developers that 32-bit apps would stop running “without compromise” this fall with the release of the successor to macOS High Sierra.
The writing’s been on the wall, more or less, since all the way back in 2009 when Apple began its 64-bit transition with the release of Snow Leopard. But the move to 64-bit apps will have casualties, namely a whole generation of apps that are no longer being updated, but are still used every day by Mac users. No software is forever—who out there is still writing with Microsoft Word 5.1?—but when you lose a whole generation of apps at once, it’s a bit more noticeable.
