iPhone’s and iPads should immediately be updated to reflect new security issues that Apple has been exploited by from hackers. There is no specific information about the bug other than what Apple states-“Apple does not disclose, discuss, or confirm security issues until an investigation has occurred and patches or releases are available.”
At this point, Apple has declined to contact on any further attacks that would be exploited in an exploit chain which means a hacker would be able to exploit further bugs in order to execute a security hack.
The security issues occur from its Webkit, an open-source browser engine used by Safari and iOS browsers. “A remote attacker may be able to cause arbitrary code execution,” the company said in the description notes.
