PostSubject: Uber Bullshit: iPhone spying bugs revealed by Wikileaks have been fixed, lying Apple says   Wed Mar 08, 2017 7:47 am

The hoard of Apple security vulnerabilities that the CIA could use to bug people's iPhones have been fixed, the technology company has said.



A series of "zero-day" vulnerabilities available to the intelligence agency were revealed by Wikileaks on Tuesday. Several of the tools had allegedly been developed by GCHQ, the British spy agency based in Cheltenham.

Apple said that to the best of the company's knowledge, the bugs revealed in the leak of 8,761 documents were fixed in the latest version of iOS, the iPhone and iPad operating system.

"Apple is deeply committed to safeguarding our customers’ privacy and security," a spokesman said. "The technology built into today’s iPhone represents the best data security available to consumers, and we’re constantly working to keep it that way. Our products and software are designed to quickly get security updates into the hands of our customers, with nearly 80 per cent of users running the latest version of our operating system.

"While our initial analysis indicates that many of the issues leaked today were already patched in the latest iOS, we will continue work to rapidly address any identified vulnerabilities. We always urge customers to download the latest iOS to make sure they have the most recent security updates."

Wikileaks' "Vault 7" release, the largest publication of secret CIA documents in the agency's history, allegedly revealed a series of bugs designed to let spies monitor targets through iPhones, Android phones, computers and even Samsung smart TVs.
