A critical bug has been found on iPhone messaging service, iMessage by Google security engineer. The bug allows an attacker to gain access to private information or data stored on an iPhone device.
Recall that Apple communication app, Facetime also had a bug that allows users to hear audio and even seen, before a call is being accepted or rejected by the victim.
However, Google researcher team, Natalie Silvanovich said that he has discovered five bugs on iMessage messaging app. Apple has been informed about them.
One of the bugs is called CVE-2019-8646 that allows attackers to read files from “a remote device with no user interaction” which allows cyber criminals to access iPhone contents. Most of the bugs affects operating system that allows it to close up unexpectedly.
The vulnerabilities have been reported to Apple and they have already included iOS patch 12.4. So, iPhone users are recommended to install the latest software update to fix the issue.
Meanwhile, Apple didn’t say a single word concerning the patch in the latest stable update but we hope the latest patch fix it up.
