Apple Says It Has Already Patched Most WikiLeaks Vulnerabilities

WikiLeaks has published an extensive collection of vulnerabilities that the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency reportedly uses to infiltrate computer systems, including iOS. However, Apple says that it has already patched most of these security holes, telling TechCrunch, “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.” Stories like this illustrate why, even if you don’t install every update immediately, it’s a good idea to keep your devices up to date.favicon follow link
