Apple and Samsung users be aware, your device is prone to vulnerabilities
Apple and Samsung devices always earn accolades for being the most secure and trusted products across the globe. But now the Indian Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-In) has confirmed that all apple and Samsung products are citing multiple vulnerabilities. Details inside.
The Indian Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-In) has of late alerted the Apple and Samsung users in India that their devices and data are subject to compromise as their multiple flaws in their devices.
According to CERT-In, the Apple devices that run on iOS, iPadOS, macOS, tvOS, watchOS, and the Safari browser include numerous vulnerabilities that could give space to the hackers to access user’s personal data and sensitive information.
In an official statement of CERT-In made it evident saying, “Multiple vulnerabilities have been reported in Apple products which could allow an attacker to access sensitive information, execute arbitrary code, bypass security restrictions, cause denial of service (DoS) conditions, bypass authentication, gain elevated privileges, and perform spoofing attacks on the targeted systems.”
Before also CERT-In had warned Samsung users about the suspected security flaws that could grant access to attackers for stealing sensitive information by executing malicious code on their devices. The versions affected are Android 11, 12, 13, and 14.
So Apple and Samsung users must keep an eye on any suspicious messages, links or attachments coming to their device and must be cautious enough while browsing the web. If any suspicious activity is marked, then they must consider upgrading to the available update as it might include some bug fixes or security patches for the current version.
While Apple and Samsung are considered to be the two most safe and trusted Smartphone brands across the globe, a vigilant attitude and knowledge of potential risks can prevent any purported possible fraud.
