Apple released an emergency security update for their devices due to two new zero-day vulnerabilities that have been exploited in recent attacks.
The list of affected devices includes the following:
- iPhone 8 and later,
- iPad Pro (all models),
- iPad Air 3rd generation and later,
- iPad 5th generation and later,
- iPad mini 5th generation and later, and
- Macs running macOS Ventura.
The vulnerabilities allow attackers to execute any malicious code they want, turning your devices against you.

One last thing: The FBI is warning travelers to avoid using public USB charging stations — often found in airports, hotels or other travel hubs — because the docks can be altered to introduce malware or tracking software onto personal devices.
Remember the safest option is to use an electrical outlet with a personal USB cord and charger or use a portable charger.
