New update for iPhone and iPad after serious security vulnerabilities detected


Apple recently released the 14.4 updates for iOS for iPhone and iPad for iPad, which address some serious security vulnerabilities.

TechCrunch reported earlier that Apple admitted in its iOS security update pages that it had received information about errors that might affect iPhone and iPad devices and that it "may have been actively exploited" by some entities.

There are no further details about the gaps, and it is not known who exploits the vulnerabilities, or who may be the victim. Apple did not say whether the attack targeted a small subset of users or was a broader attack. The report said the company did not reveal the identity of the one who sent the error.

This means that you should update your devices as soon as possible, as the threat is clearly very serious, Apple has found a security vulnerability in its operating systems, and it also has evidence that someone has exploited it.

Two errors were found in WebKit, the engine running safari browser, and Kernel, the heart of the operating system.

Exploiting WebCut is not easy, as the remote attacker's ability to perform dangerous software commands means he can control things in your phone once you visit a website he controls.

Whatever security breaches have been used, they are not secondary. Again, there are no details, but in general, it means that the security vulnerabilities have exceeded some of Apple's security measures.

It's a rare admission by Apple, which maintains its strong security image, that its customers may be actively attacked by hackers.
