Google reveals fistful of flaws in Apple's iMessage app
A team of bug-hunters at Google have shared details of five flaws in Apple's iMessage software that could make its devices vulnerable to attack. Apple's own notes about iOS 12.4 indicate that the unfixed flaw could give hackers a means to crash an app or execute commands of their own on recent iPhones, iPads and iPod Touches if they were able to discover it. Apple has not commented on this specific issue, but has urged users to install the new version of iOS, which addresses Google's other discoveries as well as a further range of glitches and threats. "Keeping your software up to date is one of the most important things you can do to maintain your Apple product's security," it said in a statement. The synopsis of her talk also promises it will cover potential vulnerabilities in Apple's Visual Voicemail service - which allows users to select specific recordings - and its Mail app.
