Apple Says ‘Many’ Vulnerabilities in Today’s Leaked CIA Documents Have Alread ...

Various documents leaked by WikiLeaks from earlier today indicated that the CIA has a dedicated unit to bypass the various security measures that Apple employs on iOS. The team usually relies on some exploits and vulnerabilities to be able to get into the OS.

Apple has now issued a statement to TechCrunch confirming that all the exploits and vulnerabilities detailed in today’s leaks from WikiLeaks have already been patched in the latest version of iOS as per its “initial analysis.”

“Apple is deeply committed to safeguarding our customers’ privacy and security. The technology built into today’s iPhone represents the best data security available to consumers, and we’re constantly working to keep it that way. Our products and software are designed to quickly get security updates into the hands of our customers, with nearly 80 percent of users running the latest version of our operating system. While our initial analysis indicates that many of the issues leaked today were already patched in the latest iOS, we will continue work to rapidly address any identified vulnerabilities. We always urge customers to download the latest iOS to make sure they have the most recent security updates.”

Apple also promises to rapidly patch any identified vulnerabilities to offer the best in terms of security to its customers. The company’s statement does leave room to interpret that there can be possibly some vulnerabilities in the OS mentioned in the leaked documents that it is yet to identify and patch.

Various government agencies have been trying for years to develop malware to bypass the security in iOS. They usually rely on zero-day exploits and other undisclosed vulnerabilities in the OS, but have not been particularly successful so far due to Apple’s relentless effort to make iOS more secure.
