Macs can still be successfully attacked using some of the same firmware vulnerabilities affecting many Windows PCs, a new proof-of-concept worm is said to demonstrate. Superficially, the new attack -- dubbed Thunderstrike 2 -- appears similar to the namesake Thunderstrike vulnerability found last year and likely relies on some of the same attack vectors.

The new images, first published by Australian website Macfixit mirror those seen previously with an assembly that superficially matches that found on the iPhone 6.
