Why is Google being closed to consumers

Last week SiBa reported on security updates for Apple operating systems. The US company is now, a few days later, after: An update to iOS 14.5.1 is pending for the iPhone, for the iPad to iPadOS 14.5.1 and for the Mac to macOS 11.3.1. The Apple Watch is being updated to version watchOS 7.4.1.

The security updates close vulnerabilities in Apple's Webkit. This is the technical system that Apple uses in various devices to display web content, for example in the Safari browser and in other apps. The vulnerabilities allow attackers to execute malware using manipulated websites and thus gain access to personal or confidential data. The above updates close the security holes that have apparently already been exploited, according to Apple.

In addition, Apple has fixed a bug in all versions that resulted in the query whether tracking should be allowed for certain apps not being displayed. SiBa reported on this new function in the last news.

In addition, the US company Google has released security updates for the Android version 8.1, 9, 10 and 11. This closes three security holes that have been classified as critical. Criminals can use this to acquire administrator rights, increase privileges and thus circumvent security measures. This gives you secure information such as passwords.

SiBa advises installing the updates in order to be protected from attacks.
