Security flaw controls iPhone, iPad and Mac


OOPS – This applies to iPhone 6s and later, all iPad Pros, fifth-generation iPads and later, and Macs

Apple has recommended that owners of certain models of iPhone, iPad and Mac update the operating software, which has a security flaw allowing them to take control of these devices.

Affected are iPhone 6s and later, all iPad Pros, fifth-generation iPads and later, and Macs, according to notices posted on Apple’s website. According to the Apple firm, in the old version of the operating software, « an application can use arbitrary code » with undue access to the device, which means that a hacker can perform actions without authorization.

An impressive fault

“This possibility could have been actively exploited” by hackers, says Apple, without further details. The flaw is also exploitable through “maliciously crafted Internet content,” adds the group from Cupertino, California.

To address these flaws, Apple is urging users to download iOS operating software version 15.6.1 for iPhones, its counterpart to iPadOS 15.6.1 for iPads and macOS Monterey 12.5.1 for Mac computers. The flaws were reported, according to Apple, by anonymous researchers.
