2023-03-29

The federal Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) this week advised users and administrators to update their Apple software due to security vulnerabilities.

“Apple has released security updates to address vulnerabilities in multiple products. An attacker could exploit some of these vulnerabilities to take control of an affected device,” the notice, dated March 28, reads. “CISA encourages users and administrators to review the following advisories and apply the necessary updates.”
