A report published by security researchers, Vangelis Stykas and Michael Gruhn, has revealed that there are a series of vulnerabilities found within several GPS and location tracking services, which has been labelled “Trackmageddon”.
Ever on the lookout for a new avenue of attack, cybercriminals had figured out a method of using Google App Scripts to automatically download malware hosted in Google drive to any computer.
Apple has issued a statement regarding the Meltdown and Spectre vulnerabilities, confirming all Mac systems and iOS devices are affected, but saying there are no known exploits impacting customers at this time. Apple, like Microsoft, has urged users to download software only from trusted sources, such as the App Store
The bugs are an “absolute disaster” and need to be fixed promptly, according to one cyber-security researcher. oogle researchers said one of the “serious security flaws”, dubbed “Spectre”, was found in chips made by Intel, AMD and ARM. The other, known as “Meltdown” affects Intel-made chips and a one recent ARM chip.
