Albanese shares Bali bomber’s outrage; Strike at Adelaide hospitals; Mixed reception to Morrison’s memes; NSW has 6899 new coronavirus cases, 22 deaths; Victoria reports 3857 new virus cases, 27 deaths; Apple warns of a security flaw for iPhones, iPads and Macs

Apple has disclosed serious security vulnerabilities for iPhones, iPads and Macs that could allow attackers to take full control of these devices.

The company said it is “aware of a report that this issue may have been actively exploited.”

Apple released two security reports on the issue on Wednesday, though they didn’t get much attention outside of tech publications.

Security experts have advised users to update affected devices: iPhones6S and later; various iPad models, including 5th generation and later, all iPad Pro models, and iPad Air 2; and Mac computers running MacOS Monterey. It also affects some iPod models.

Apple’s explanation of the vulnerability means that a hacker could gain “full administrator access to the device” so they could “execute any code as if you were the user,” said Rachel Tobac, CEO of SocialProof Security .
