iPhone and Mac hacks in WikiLeaks doc are old, fixed – Apple

WikiLeaks released documents recently as part of Vault 7 which revealed the CIA had tools to exploit vulnerabilities in iPhones and Macs.

Apple has now responded to the release, stating that the listed vulnerabilities in the leaks are old and have been fixed.

“Based on our initial analysis, the alleged iPhone vulnerability affected iPhone 3G only and was fixed in 2009 when iPhone 3GS was released,” said Apple.

“Additionally, our preliminary assessment shows the alleged Mac vulnerabilities were previously fixed in all Macs launched after 2013.”

Apple said it has not negotiated with WikiLeaks for any information.

“We have given them instructions to submit any information they wish through our normal process under our standard terms.”

“Thus far, we have not received any information from them that isn’t in the public domain. We are tireless defenders of our users’ security and privacy, but we do not condone theft or coordinate with those that threaten to harm our users.”
