Happy Friday Just 2 days ago Apple released two security reports that disclose serious security vulnerabilities for iPhones, iPads and Macs that could potentially allow attackers to take complete control of these devices. Apple’s explanation of the vulnerability means a hacker could get “full admin access” to the device, allowing intruders to impersonate the device’s owner and subsequently run any software in their name. Apple did not say in the reports how, where or by whom the vulnerabilities were discovered. In all cases, it cited an anonymous researcher.
The Takeaway Security experts have advised users to update affected devices — the iPhone6S and later models; several models of the iPad, including the 5th generation and later, all iPad Pro models and the iPad Air 2; and Mac computers running MacOS Monterey. So, the next time your Apple device pops up asking you to update, be sure to run it ASAP. Stay safe out there. -A
