san francisco Apple has warned of serious security vulnerabilities in iPhones, iPads and Macs that could potentially allow hackers to take full control of devices. “There is also a report aware that this problem could have been actively exploited,” the US group said.
Security researchers advised users to apply a software update to the affected devices: iPhones 6s and later models, many iPad models with 5th generation and later, all iPad Pro models and iPad Air 2, and macOS Monterey Mac computers are included. Some iPod models have also been affected.
Rachel Toback, chief executive officer of security company SocialProof Security, said Apple’s warning about the vulnerability means a hacker could gain “full administrator access to the device”, allowing them to run “any code”. as if it were you, the user”. Software updates should primarily be carried out by those who are in the public eye, such as activists and journalists who may be the target of state surveillance.
