Microsoft, Apple and Samsung vowed to fix any vulnerabilities in their products following WikiLeaks’ disclosure of an alleged CIA hacking arsenal capable of breaking into iPhones and other devices.
The archive released on Tuesday claims to show the CIA exploiting weaknesses it discovers in hardware and software systems without informing manufacturers of the flaws in question.
Apple said in an emailed statement, “While our initial analysis indicates that many of the issues leaked today were already patched in the latest iOS, we will continue work to rapidly address any identified vulnerabilities.”
Samsung said, “We always urge customers to download the latest iOS to make sure they have the most recent security updates. Protecting consumers’ privacy and the security of our devices is a top priority at Samsung.”
The Tech companies were of the view that they were aware of the report in question and are urgently looking into the matter.
