Apple has released an update to iOS 14.4, which fixes serious security vulnerabilities. Writes about this TechCrunch. According to the developers, attackers often exploited these errors.
The publication clarifies that the vulnerabilities were found by an anonymous information security expert. The loopholes were found in the Webkit engine running the Safari browser. With their help, hackers could change the privileges for the software and perform the necessary processes to gain access to device management.
The company did not specify the number of victims of the discovered vulnerabilities. Apple also promised to release more details in the future, but did not give a timeline. Apparently, the developers are waiting for as many users as possible to download the update, so as not to expose them to the risk of hacking.
In addition to bug fixes, Apple has added new options to iOS. Devices can now recognize smaller QR codes, classify Bluetooth connected equipment, and more.
