Singapore Computer Emergency Response Team (SingCERT) issued an alert on Nov. 11, urging users of macOS Ventura, iPhone 8 and later, and iPad to update their software "immediately".

Apple has released security updates to address two vulnerabilities in its products which could result in issues such as remote hacking. These vulnerabilities could allow an attacker to perform arbitrary code execution if successfully exploited.

Users of affected Apple products are advised to update their software to the latest versions:

  • macOS Ventura 13.0.1: for macOS Ventura
  • iOS 16.1.1: for iPhone 8 and later
  • iPadOS 16.1.1: for iPad Pro (all models), iPad Air 3rd generation and later, iPad 5th generation and later, and iPad mini 5th generation and later

Users are also recommended to enable automatic software updates. Head to Settings > General > Software Updates > Enable Automatic Updates.

SingCERT issued a similar warning in October regarding a "zero-day vulnerability" in some iPhone and iPad models.
