Apple lash back at Google

Apple are not happy with the way in which Google revealed security flaws recently and are therefore having their say.

Google security researchers revealed numerous flaws with the iOS over the past 2 years. While Apple do not dispute the findings they are upset with the malicious manner in which Google shared the findings.

Such finding could have “stoking fear among all iPhone users that their devices had been compromised” because key details were omitted in Google’s blog post.

“The sophisticated attack was narrowly focused, not a broad-based exploit of iPhones ‘en masse’ as described,” stated Apple.

“The attack affected fewer than a dozen websites that focus on content related to the Uighur community.” The malicious websites also affected Windows and Android users which is something Google failed to delve into.

“All evidence indicates that these website attacks were only operational for a brief period, roughly two months, not ‘two years’ as Google implies,” says Apple.

Apple had resolved the vulnerability in February, just 10 days after learning of the security flaw.

“When Google approached us, we were already in the process of fixing the exploited bugs,” stated Apple.

“Our product security teams around the world are constantly iterating to introduce new protections and patch vulnerabilities as soon as they’re found. We will never stop our tireless work to keep our users safe.”
