According to a statement by the company, the vulnerabilities dubbed Meltdown and Spectre could allow hackers to get access to sensitive information on the users' computers and other devices.
Apple says it as of now discharged "alleviations" in iOS 11.2, macOS 10.13.2, and tvOS 11.2 to help safeguard against Meltdown.
Besides, as per a report published on The guardian.com, Apple is also developing protections against the Spectre flaw for its Safari browser for iOS and macOS devices. Interestingly, the Apple Watch is said to be immune. The company pledged to issue updates to the Safari web browser in the coming days "to help mitigate against Spectre", which affects processors from Intel and nearly all suppliers, including AMD and Arm Holdings.
Apple this evening has officially released a statement on the Meltdown and Spectre bugs affecting ARM and Intel processors.
The flaws came to light earlier this week after researchers discovered the security hole which could allow privately stored data in computers and networks to be leaked.
The company said that since exploiting many of these issues requires a malicious app to be loaded onto the Mac or iOS device, people are being asked to only download software from trusted sources such as the App Store.
Crystal Palace come from behind to win at Southampton
Palace have recently secured draws from losing positions against Bournemouth and West Ham, and victories over Watford and Stoke. The Eagles made a switch at half time with Cabaye coming off and Patrick Van Aanholt coming on as Palace switched to a 4-4-2.
Meltdown is the slightly more interesting case because fixes for it necessarily change the way CPUs handle memory and the aforementioned "speculative execution". Meltdown appears to be specific to chips made by Intel. In addition, many operating system vendors, public cloud service providers, device manufacturers and others have indicated that they have already updated their products and services.
The experts have advised users to keep their computers and smart devices up to date.
Intel said that "for the average user", the performance impact on products using the processors from the last five years "should not be significant and will be mitigated over time".
There aren't any processors available at the moment that can replace the vulnerable ones and still provide the same kind of functionality.
