Your Apple device could be hacked if not updated: CERT advisory

If you are an Apple Watch, TV or Mac user, there is some bad news for you.

Security researchers have found two serious vulnerabilities in these three products.

 That could enable hackers to take control of your devices and use them for nefarious purposes.

Indian Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-In), which is the Central cyber security agency for India, has warned about serious vulnerabilities in all these three products

CERT-In warned of multiple vulnerabilities in the Mac operating system and the vulnerabilities were classified as ‘critical’, which is the most serious rating in cyber security parlance.

"Apple Mac OS could be exploited by a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code, bypass security restrictions and cause denial of service conditions on the targetted system,” the advisory stated.

In simpler words, a hacker would take over the vulnerable device and make it do anything they want

Apple has released patches for both the vulnerabilities, which can be installed by downloading the latest updates to the products.
