Apple warns of security flaws for iPhones, iPads and Macs: Report

Apple has revealed serious security flaws for iPhones, iPads and Macs that could potentially allow attackers to take complete control of these devices.

The company said it was ‘aware of the report that this issue could have been actively exploited.’

Apple’s explanation of the vulnerability means that a hacker could gain “full administrative access to the device” to “run any code as if you were the user,” said Rachel Tobac, CEO of SocialProof Security.

Security experts advised users to update the affected devices — iPhones6S and later models; several iPad models, including 5th generation and later, all iPad Pro and iPad Air 2 models; and Mac computers running macOS Monterey. It also affects some iPod models.

Those who should pay particular attention to updating their software are “people who are in the public eye,” such as activists or journalists, who could become targets of sophisticated nation-state espionage, Tobac said.
