Apple recently launched the iPhone SE 2020. While the new iPhone is still under discussion, the company warns users of new and old iPhones. This warning clearly warns that iPhone users must be careful because the company confirms a massive security vulnerability on iOS that affects almost every iPhone. There have been reports that hackers can hack devices by exploiting this error that appears on the iPhone. In such situations, millions of users’ personal information being compromised.
Forbes reports that security firm ZecOps claims that every iphone running iOS 6 and above is vulnerable to remote attack. At the same time, Apple has also confirmed this. ZecOps says that Apple reported this bug in March but the company showed no seriousness on it. The reason for this bug is the risk of users’ personal data being stolen. Hackers do not have to work very hard for this. Because the data can be hacked using the apps opened in the background of the iphone.
According to the report, ZecOps says that it is easier to attack iOS 13 than the older generation of iOS. For example, ZecOps states that in iOS 12, attackers require iPhone users to open email. Whereas in iOS 13, the open mail app can be attacked in the background. Apple has now confirmed that the new iOS 13.4.5 beta has managed to overcome this flaw and it seems that the company will now speed up its release.
It has been reported in the report that ‘zero-click’ and mail opening facility are available in iOS 12 version. In such a situation, by hacking the email, the attacker can leak, modify and delete the email. While in some cases, it allows access to the device as a whole, but as of now, it has not been confirmed. Apple says that the necessary updates to fix the bug have been prepared and a security patch will be included in the coming days to fix this bug, which will be made available to all users globally.
