Henderson runs a team of hackers that clients hire to break into their computer systems in order to expose vulnerabilities.

After using the cable to connect an iPod to a Mac computer, MG remotely accessed the cable’s IP address and took control of the Mac.

MG noted that he could later remotely “kill” the implanted malware and wipe out all evidence of its existence.
