You should probably update your Apple devices right now
Following the discovery of a vulnerability in its operating systems that the company claims "may have been actively exploited," apple is advising users of the majority of its devices to update their software.
Apple (AAPL) said the vulnerabilities give hackers the ability to take control of a device’s operating system to “execute arbitrary code”
nd potentially infiltrate devices through “maliciously crafted web content.”
The vulnerability also extends to Mac computers running the company’s Monterey OS as well as
Apple’s Safari browser on its Big Sur and Catalina operating systems, the company said in a subsequent update.
Cybersecurity experts urged Apple users to update their devices,
with the US government’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency warning that “an attacker could exploit one of these vulnerabilities to take control of an affected device.”
The agency said affected users should “apply the necessary updates as soon as possible.”
