Apple-After discovering a vulnerability in the default email service on iOS Apple confirms that it does not pose a danger to users.

There have been reports over the past few days of a vulnerability in the default email service application on iOS that affects the privacy of users

and can cause the penetration of iPhones or iPads,

but apparently the vulnerability cannot directly affect users according to Apple.

Apple sent us on the site of the tech world to comment on the incident and said that it takes security threats seriously,

but it did not find any evidence to form a vulnerability in the e-mail application discovered any danger to users directly

Apple

and did not find any evidence of the use of the security vulnerability against consumers in a way Public.

The company will also update the email app soon to keep users from the security threats that the vulnerability could cause.

Apple’s full comment on the incident:

iPhone and iPad users can now rest assured after the company’s permission

and wait for the next security updates to install them.

Apple has found no evidence that recently discovered security flaws in the native iOS Mail app were exploited by hackers,

the company said in a statement.

“We have found no evidence they were used against customers,”

the company said. It also cast doubt on whether the issues,

which it admitted were present on both the iPhone

and the iPad versions of its Mail app were enough to bypass the two devices’ security protections.

While the flaws were “triggered in-the-wild,”

according to ZecOps,

it said the bugs alone “cannot cause harm to iOS users

since the attackers would require an additional info leak bug & a kernel bug afterward for full control over the targeted device.” In its statement,

“allows remote code execution capabilities and enables an attacker to remotely infect a device by sending emails that consume a 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.”

iOS users

In its findings, security researcher ZecOps said the flaws “would allow the attacker to leak, modify, and delete emails.”

Users who were the recipient of “failed attacks” might see emails displaying the fairly common, “This message has content” warning.

Affected users wouldn’t notice any changes on their device other than “a temporary slowdown” of the Mail app, cops said. The flaws existed since iOS 6, the company says.
