Apple admits to widespread iOS Mail security threat but says it doesn’t pose ‘an immediate risk’
After a security firm uncovered a flaw in Apple’s iOS Mail app that “allows remote code execution capabilities and enables an attacker to remotely infect a device by sending emails that consume significant amount of memory,” Apple is assuring users that it doesn’t pose an immediate risk.
In a statement late Thursday, Apple assured users that the protections in place on iPhones and iPads are strong enough to mitigate any potential risk. “The researcher identified three issues in Mail, but alone they are insufficient to bypass iPhone and iPad security protections.”
