Security Flaw Discovered in iPhone 12 and M2 MacBook Air
A security flaw named “LeftoverLocals” has been discovered in some Apple silicon GPUs, posing a risk of unauthorized access to sensitive data. The vulnerability, found by cybersecurity firm Trail of Bits, allows local attackers to retrieve data from the GPU’s local memory. The issue is concerning due to the widespread use of GPUs in processing Large Language Models (LLMs) for AI applications. Apple has patched newer devices with A17 Pro and M3 chips, including the third-generation iPad Air. However, older models like the iPhone 12 and M2 MacBook Air remain vulnerable, and it’s uncertain when they will receive security updates to address the issue. The vulnerability requires physical access to the device, making remote exploitation highly unlikely. Apple recommends users install the latest software updates for security.
Apple’s iPhone 15 lineup is surpassing its predecessors and leading 2023 flagship smartphones in value retention, according to a report from SellCell.
