A group of security researchers have come forward with startling news that passwords and other data on your Apple devices might not be safe. The group has published their findings in a paper where they explain how Apple’s devices could be hacked.
The paper explains that the way Apple writes its code to communicate between devices, they were able to hack in to the system by uploading an app with malware onto the Apple Store.
The app in turn downloaded secure data, that should not be accessible to anyone, to the hacker. The confidential data that the app was able to steal included passwords of bank accounts, emails and iCloud.
The team’s lead researcher said that his team was able to gain unauthorized access to other applications on a Apple device.
The devices affected by this problem are the iPhone, iPad and Mac.
