Flash has a control panel is system preferences that you can make these settings changes. In my version (admittedly older) there is a tab for "Camera and Mic" where you can manage camera and microphone settings by site/

To restore a device using iTunes, iTunes itself requires an internet connection. Furthermore, the status of Find My iPhone is obtained from the device as well as Apple's servers—iTunes knows if the device you're attempting to restore has Find My iPhone enabled and will prevent the device from being restored. The only way to restore a device with Find My ...
There is no feature to allow someone to sign in to a second Apple ID, so unless he guessed your new Apple ID and new password, he's not receiving your messages. You could enable two factor authentication to ensure no one easily signs in as you. There are forensic and legal ways to read people's messages - but they are generally complicated or costly. Most ...
Short answer is no — you have no guarantee that the malware hasn't removed a seldom-used genuine Apple kernel module and given itself the same name. Malware is very good at hiding — often compromised Unix systems (such as OS X) get custom versions of system utilities that won't show the malware (see slides 39-41 here).
Not particularly at any grave security risk since Apple is supporting and releasing security updates to OS X for n-3 generations of the OS as of August 2014: Mavericks (10.9) Mountain Lion (10.8) Lion (10.7) Snow Leopard (10.6) This is documented on the main support page at http://www.apple.com/support/osx/ I haven't seen any time when n-2 were not ...
This is too large a trust you want to give to osascript. Do you want this command to run without asking you for a real confirmation: sudo osascript -e 'tell app "Finder" to quit' ?
If you haven't enabled Find My iPhone, then you haven't enabled Activation Lock, which means the device can be reset simply by placing it in Recovery Mode and clicking Restore in iTunes. Setting a passcode protects the information on the device but won't prevent against restoring the OS.
If a website is serving some content over HTTPS and some over HTTP then you shouldn't trust it. It's that simple. It doesn't matter what certificate it is using for the secure parts. If part of the content is being loaded over an insecure connection then you don't know if it has been interfered with, and you don't know if it is interfering with the securely ...
This app in Cydia seems like it would do the trick (provided it works as advertised): http://cydia.saurik.com/package/iwipe/ The app works by making a very large file that takes up all the free space in the user memory and writes zeros to all the bits. So to securely delete individual files, one would simply (insecurely) delete them (marking them as free ...
Yes, you can change the binary, or even change the Info.plist, but like changing the binary you make will need to do this again each time the app is updated. There's no way to do this without changing the app in a way that won't be overwritten when it's updated. You can automatically make your changes with a Launch Agent. Save the following in ...
