Apple products vulnerable to FORCEDENTRY zero-day attack – patch now!

Canadian privacy and cybersecurity activist group The Citizen Lab just announced a zero-day security hole in Apple’s iPhone, iPad and Macintosh operating systems.

To check for updates (and automatically fetch them if they haven’t been downloaded automatically yet), do this:

*    On an iPad or iPhone. Go to
      Settings > General > Software Update. If you are using iOS 14, you want 14.8.
*    On a MacBook laptop or a desktop Mac. Go to
      Apple menu > System Preferences > Software Update. If you are using macOS Big Sur 11, you want 11.6.

Apple zero-days run rampant in 2021

It has been a very busy year for Apple with what seems like an unending streaming of zero-day vulnerabilities used in targeted attacks against iOS and Mac devices.

Apple emergency update fixes zero-days used to hack iPhones, Macs

Apple has released security updates on Thursday to address two zero-day vulnerabilities exploited by attackers to hack iPhones, iPads, and Macs.

Zero-day security bugs are flaws the software vendor is unaware of and hasn't patched.

The list of impacted devices includes:

    Macs running macOS Monterey
    iPhone 6s and later
    iPad Pro (all), iPad Air 2 and later, iPad 5th gen and later, iPad mini 4 and later, iPod touch (7th gen)

Even though these zero-days were likely only used in targeted attacks, it's still strongly advised to install today's security updates as soon as possible to block potential attack attempts.

Apple emergency update fixes zero-day used to hack Macs, Watches

Apple has released security updates to address a zero-day vulnerability that threat actors can exploit in attacks targeting Macs and Apple Watch devices.

Zero-days are security flaws that the software vendor is unaware of and hasn't yet patched. In some cases, this type of vulnerability may also have publicly available proof-of-concept exploits before a patch arrives or may be actively exploited in the wild.

The list of impacted devices includes Apple Watch Series 3 or late, Macs running macOS Big Sur, Apple TV 4K, Apple TV 4K (2nd generation), and Apple TV HD.

Although this zero-day was most probably only used in targeted attacks, it's still strongly advised to install today's macOS and watchOS security updates as soon as possible to block attack attempts.
