The new update has been released with security fixes for three vulnerabilities that had affected iPhones and iPads. Apple admitted that the three bugs “may have been actively exploited” by hackers. Apple has refused any further commentary, leaving details of the security vulnerabilities scarce. It is unknown who started the attack and who was targeted, or may have been affected.
What is known, is that two of the bugs were found in the WebKit, which powers the Safari browser, and the Kernel, which is the core of an iPhones operating system. It is rare that Apple admits to any security breach, as the tech giant prides itself on its security image. Apple has also stated that additional details will be available soon – but no further information was given.
