One of the holes Google found in iOS security is still not fixed
Security research engineers at Google have identified six vulnerabilities in Apple software designed for the iPhone. This was reported by experts of the Project Zero team Samuel Gross and Natalie Silvanovich. 5 security holes were fixed last week, which was taken into account in the iOS 12 update. One vulnerability still remains.
All detected issues are related to iMessage. They are contactless, which is fraught with the fact that the user does not even know exactly when the attack occurs. Four vulnerabilities, including one that is still not fixed, allowed fraudsters to send messages with executable malicious code. Two more took advantage of the memory gap.
Researchers have already published detailed information on five fixed bugs. The last mistake will be confidential until Apple fixes it. Be that as it may, it's time to upgrade to iOS 12.4.
A major Black Hat security conference will be held shortly. On it, Natalie Silvanovich will talk about methods of attacks on iOS without interacting with a smartphone, but only using the discovered vulnerabilities. Security holes of this kind are incredibly important for the creators of a variety of hacker tools. Revealing these errors is a huge service on the part of Google, both Apple and iOS users. .
