Apple Warn Users of the New Hacking Threats
The tech giant, Apple issued a cyber warning for iPhone, iPad and Mac users after a new hacking threat. FOX Business Network’s Tracee Carrasco reports, “Apple has now issued a critical security patch for all iOS devices and for Mac computers against a potential hack that could come remotely via Wi-Fi.” This means hackers could hijack your device via Wi-Fi chips implanted in the device’s main processor.
As it is considered as the serious threat, Apple is advising its users to download and install the latest updates to protect their devices.
For iPhones, iPads and other mobile devices, users should download the latest iOS update. Go to Settings, General and then Software Update to install iOS 10.3.3.
For Mac, users should click the Updates tab within the Mac App Store and install the macOS Sierra update to version 10.12.6.
The vulnerability also has the potential to attack Android devices. But Google has taken the necessary security steps as well to block the virus.
