iPhone, MacBook, Apple iPad users in big DANGER; do this now

The Indian government has issued urgent warnings to iPhone, MacBook and Apple iPad users. Know what to do.

If you use an iPhone, iPad or MacBook, know that you are at risk! The Indian Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-In), which is part of the Government of India’s IT Ministry, has warned that several security vulnerabilities have been discovered in Apple’s operating systems, including iOS, iPadOS and macOS. An online attacker could exploit these vulnerabilities by executing arbitrary code. The attacker can bypass security checks and even cause denial of service on targeted systems. Furthermore, these vulnerabilities can deliver maliciously crafted web content to these compromised systems.

If you own an iPhone running on an older version than iOS 15.6, there is a chance that you will be affected by multiple vulnerabilities. The same goes for the iPad users who are using their device in an older version than 15.6. In iPhones and iPads, these high-risk vulnerabilities were found to exist as a result of out-of-bounds written in Audio, GPU drivers, ICU and WebKit, and buffer overflow in AppleAVD.

MacBook users are also affected!

CERT-In also issued high-risk warnings for vulnerabilities in Apple macOS Catalina prior to 20022-005, macOS Big Sur versions prior to 11.6.8, and macOS Monterey versions prior to 12.5. According to CERT-In, “These vulnerabilities exist due to out-of-bounds reading in AppleScript, SMB and Kernel, out-of-bounds writing in Audio, ICU, PS Normalizer, GU Drivers, SMB and WebKit.”

In addition, vulnerabilities can also be found in AppleMobileFileIntegrity; disclosure of information in Calendar and iCloud Photo Library. Other vulnerabilities reported include logic issues in file system events, PluginKit, Windows Server, and automation and memory corruption in Intel Graphics Driver, GPU Drivers, and SMB.

What should iPhone, iPad and MacBook users do?

The report says these high-risk vulnerabilities in iPhone, iPad, and MacBook can be fixed by simply applying available security patches to Apple software available on your device. Keep an eye on all the latest updates so that you are not affected by these vulnerabilities.
