It’s been relatively quiet in the hacker world when it comes to major companies, but Valentine’s Day brought an all-out alert from the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA).
It noted that several major software companies and service providers were asking users to update their systems to address vulnerabilities in multiple products and prevent hackers from taking control of an affected device.
CISA informed ConsumerAffairs that attackers are actively attempting to break into products from Apple, Adobe, Microsoft, and Mozilla. According to WindowsReport, several of these are “critical” as far as severity is concerned – such as Adobe Photoshop and Adobe InDesign.
The following is a list of the affected products and links to the updates for those products:
CISA encourages users and administrators to review the Apple security updates page for the following products and apply the necessary updates as soon as possible:
• iOS 16.3.1 and iPadOS 16.3.1
