techno.rentetan.com – Apple only released updates to address a vulnerability that hackers used to exploit.

You should upgrade your device immediately when you own an iPad, an iPhone, or a Mac. Why? Since brand new patches are available and do not want to be hacked.

Apple has released unpredictably the newest updates for the Company’s phones and tablets iOS 14.7.1 and iPadOS 14.7.1 earlier today. macOS Big Sur 11.5.1, which resolves a minor bug last week when the MacOS Big Sur 11.5 has been released, has been released.

Most of the critical feature of recent updates is that Apple says hackers have been exploited “in the wilderness,” that means, out of the globe. The CVE-2021-30807 vulnerability could permit the hacker to execute arbitrary code that has kernel privileges to essentially disable your device.

This is the entire Apple rundown:

Available for: iPhone 6s and later, iPad Pro (all models) and iPad Air 2s and subsequent, iPad 5th and subsequent, iPad mini 4 and subsequent and iPod touch (7th generation)

Impact: An application can execute an arbitrary kernel code. Apple knows a report that the problem could have been actively taken advantage of.

Description: An enhanced memory handling problem was addressed.

An Anonymous Researcher CVE-2021-30807

The report notes that while the person who does the hacking is not exactly clear, some notable suspects are present:

While it is quite probable that the “zero-day” could be a new exploit for the iOS jailbound community to root iPhones, it also remains uncertain whether today’s zero-day is related in any way to the NSO Group, an Israeli company that has sold iPhone hacking tools to governments around the world and has been the center of many research reports that have recently exposed some.

While it’s difficult to say who is following your device precisely, obviously you don’t want them to succeed. Therefore, go, update, be safe.
