by | Aug 20, 2022 | News & Updates

Apple has released patches for a vulnerability to its iPhone, iPad and Mac devices, which it says could have been ‘actively exploited’ by hackers. The flaw affects the kernel and WebKit, the web browser engine used by Safari.

Apple attributed the discovery of the vulnerability to an anonymous researcher or researchers.

Experts suggest the security flaw could potentially allow threat actors to gain complete control of a device.

The company says the updates improve security and advises all users to install them. The updates are available for a wide range of devices.

Updates to devices are a common part of our modern lives, but it seems this one is not one that we should ignore. Experts in the industry are concerned about the potential damage that could be caused if threat actors used the vulnerability to access an unpatched device.

So it makes sense to update all your iPhone, iPad, and Mac devices immediately.
