Update your iPhone immediately as the government issues a high-risk alert

<p>The Computer Emergency Response Team in India (CERT-In), an Indian cyber organization, has issued a high risk warning to Apple customers worldwide. The CIA has discovered a number of security holes in Apple devices that might give an attacker access to private data.<img decoding=”async” class=”alignnone wp-image-260373″ src=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/10/theindiaprint.com-direct-flights-between-delhi-and-hong-kong-are-now-available-on-vistara-phone-15.jpg” alt=”theindiaprint.com direct flights between delhi and hong kong are now available on vistara phone 15″ width=”1547″ height=”1043″ srcset=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/10/theindiaprint.com-direct-flights-between-delhi-and-hong-kong-are-now-available-on-vistara-phone-15.jpg 700w, https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/10/theindiaprint.com-direct-flights-between-delhi-and-hong-kong-are-now-available-on-vistara-phone-15-150×101.jpg 150w” sizes=”(max-width: 1547px) 100vw, 1547px” title=”Update your iPhone immediately as the government issues a high-risk alert 3″></p>
<p>As to CERT-in, there are many vulnerabilities that might enable malevolent actors to carry out arbitrary code execution, evade security measures, trigger denial of service (DoS) attacks, evade authentication procedures, get elevated privileges, and conduct spoofing attacks on the intended system.</p>
<p>The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology’s CERT-IN has also put out a list of software that is impacted.</p>
<p id=”3″ class=”story_para_3″><em><strong>– Apple iOS versions prior to 17.1 and iPadOS versions prior to 17.1</strong></em></p>
<p id=”4″ class=”story_para_4″><em><strong>– Apple iOS versions prior to 16.7.2 and iPados versions prior to 16.7.2</strong></em></p>

<p id=”9″ class=”story_para_9″><em><strong>– Apple tvOS versions prior to 17.1</strong></em></p>
<p id=”10″ class=”story_para_10″><em><strong>– Apple watchOS versions prior to 10.1</strong></em></p>
<p id=”11″ class=”story_para_11″><em><strong>– Apple Safari versions prior to 17.1</strong></em></p>
<p>All owners of iPhones, Apple Watches, Macs, and iPads have been recommended by CERT-In to update their devices with the most recent Apple firmware in order to protect themselves against possible hacking and data theft. Installing the most recent updates for Safari, tvOS, watchOS, macOS, iOS, and tvOS is essential for anyone who want to safeguard their personal information.</p>
<p>The update is now available for download from the Cupertino-based tech giant; just go to the device settings to install it.</p>
<p>Users of iPhones may update the software by going to Settings > General. The iOS version that is presently installed and the availability of updates are shown on the screen.</p>
<p>With the introduction of iOS 17.1, Apple gave iPhone users using the iOS 17 operating system access to a number of new capabilities. It fixes many other problems as well. It resolves a potential bug that might result in the Significant Location privacy setting being reset when initially pairing or transferring an Apple Watch.</p>
