Millions of Apple users rushed, Friday, towards the new update announced by the American company, after discovering a security vulnerability that puts the data of the company's device holders at risk.


And Apple announced, on Thursday, the discovery of a security vulnerability that enables hackers to gain access to iPhone, iPad and Mac devices, and take complete control of them.


She said she was aware of a report about the active exploitation of this vulnerability, and published two security reports on the matter on Wednesday, but the matter did not draw attention until later, according to the British newspaper, "Daily Mail", Friday.


However, no specific cases have been reported so far, in which the vulnerability was exploited against people or devices.


Cyber ​​security experts advised users to update affected devices from iPhone 6s and later, and multiple copies of the iPad, including the fifth generation, all iPad Pro devices, and others.


How to update


The new update can be accessed by going to the Settings menu, then heading to software update, where the user will see a note indicating its importance in terms of security for the user.


According to Apple, fraudsters in the virtual world can take control of users' bank accounts, as well as photos and other data in a smartphone.


The vulnerability was discovered by an unknown researcher on the "Web Kit" search engine that supports the Safari browser, and the kernel of the operating system in Apple devices.


In the note published by the American company on the technical support page, one vulnerability means that a malicious application will alone be able to execute arbitrary code using kernel privileges, which means full access to the device.


Andy Norton, head of cyber risk at Armis, says that this vulnerability appears to have major implications, as Apple products have become an essential part of daily life, and everything we cherish is in these products.


He adds: Historically, many users have not upgraded products due to fear of shortening the life of their devices, and this behavior must stop.
