Change home directory and bypass TCC aka CVE-2020-27937

Introduction This is the second TCC vulnerability that has been disclosed on my & Csaba’s talk “20+ ways to bypass your macOS privacy mechanisms” during Black Hat USA. This time by changing the NFSHomeDirectory variable I was able to bypass user TCC restrictions. Do you remember the CVE-2020–9934: Bypassing the macOS Transparency, Consent, and Control (TCC) Framework for unauthorized access to sensitive user data article describing a vulnerability found by Matt Shockley?
