Apple Users Beware: CERT-In Discovers Severe Security Gaps Affecting iPhones, iPads And Macs

CERT-In, India’s cybersecurity watchdog, has flagged critical security flaws in various Apple operating systems across devices and the Safari web browser.

What Happened: Revealed in a March 19 advisory, these vulnerabilities expose users to significant risks such as unauthorized code execution, security bypass, sensitive data access, and potential system crashes.

The flaws, particularly pronounced in Apple Safari, stem from multiple sources. These include issues in the Private Browsing feature and the handling of web content. These could lead to security measure bypasses, unauthorized data access, and system crashes if exploited.

The vulnerabilities impact a range of Apple software, specifically:

  • Apple visionOS versions before 1.1 (Available for Apple Vision Pro)
  • Apple tvOS versions before 17.4 (Available for Apple TV HD and Apple TV 4K, all models)
  • Apple watchOS versions before 10.4 (Available for Apple Watch Series 4 and later)
  • Apple macOS Monterey versions before 12.7.4
  • Apple macOS Sonoma versions before 14.4
  • Apple macOS Ventura versions before 13.6.5
  • Apple Xcode versions before 15.3 (Available for macOS Sonoma 14 and later)
  • Apple GarageBand versions before 10.4.11 (Available for macOS Ventura and macOS Sonoma)

Apple advises users of these versions to quickly update their systems to the latest versions, as it has already released fixes to close these security gaps.
