Apple share price: All Apple devices affected by processing chip flaw
05 January, 2018, 12:14 | Author: Cecelia Webb
Apple said that it has already released patches to fight against the Meltdown flaw in iOS 11.2, macOS 10.13.2, and tvOS 11.2.
Mac users have often believed that their devices and operating systems are less vulnerable to security issues than, for example Android phones or computers running Microsoft systems.
Apple acknowledges that its devices, be it Macs, iPhones, or iPads, are affected by the two vulnerabilities. These issues apply to all modern processors and affect almost all computing devices and operating systems. Ben Johnson, co-founder and chief strategist for cyber security firm Carbon Black, said the delay in updating customers about whether Apple's devices are at risk could affect Apple's drive to get more business customers to adopt its hardware.
The bigger immediate threat from Spectre, Apple said, is in the Safari browser.
The Cupertino, California-based company said recent software updates for iPads, iPhones, iPod touches, Mac desktops and laptops, and the Apple TV set-top-box mitigate one of the vulnerabilities known as Meltdown. So while Macs and iOS devices, often hailed for being very secure, aren't immune, Apple's latest bulletin basically says stay calm and keep updated. "We continue to develop and test further mitigations within the operating system for the Spectre techniques, and will release them in upcoming updates of iOS, macOS, tvOS, and watchOS".
"Our testing with public benchmarks has shown that the changes in the December 2017 updates resulted in no measurable reduction in the performance of macOS and iOS", the company said in its blog post.
It was inevitable that devices made by Californian giant Apple would also succumb to the CPU vulnerabilities striking terror across the tech world.
Researchers first announced the two flaws affecting virtually all computer processors on Wednesday.
