Recently, Apple has released the latest version of iOS to the public but accidentally reopen an old Security Flaw in its latest version. The security flaw has been found in iOS 12.3 where the vulnerabilities have been discovered by Project Zero from Google’s bug-hunting team.

No company is immune from making mistakes, even Apple, especially when the software is so complex as the iPhone,while there is a window of opportunity available until a fix comes out to take advantage of the vulnerabilities, users can be vigilant to protect themselves by validating the apps they are downloading are legitimate and safe. Any attackers will likely try to fool users into downloading malicious versions of software to try and exploit the vulnerability.

I hope people are aware that with a public jailbreak being available for the latest iOS 12.4 people must be very careful what apps they download from the Apple AppStore. Any such app could have a copy of the jailbreak in it
