Millions Of Apple Devices Vulnerable To Wi-Fi Attack

X

Apple has issued a security update to prevent attackers from taking over iOS devices using a Wi-Fi vulnerability.

If left unfixed, the vulnerability could allow “an attacker within range” to “execute arbitrary code on the Wi-Fi chip” according to Apple, potentially enabling them to take control of the device.

This security flaw dubbed ‘Broadpwn’ is linked to the Broadcom Wi-Fi chips featured in many iOS devices.

Apple isn’t the only manufacturer affected by the issue, as Google issued a patch earlier this month for the same problem, which it described as a “critical security vulnerability”, in Android devices from manufacturers like Samsung, HTC and LG.

All of Apple’s existing iPhone, iPad and iPod touch models are affected, along with all previous models dating back since the iPhone 5 and the iPad 4th generation, both released in 2012, as well as the iPod touch 6th generation released in 2015.

Owners of these Apple devices can download an update to iOS 10.3.3 now that “includes bug fixes and improves the security of your iPhone or iPad” according to Apple’s release notes.
