Google research team Project Zero, has identified six flaws in iPhone out of which five of them are fixed while the remaining is yet to be fixed.

The loops in Apple’s iOS software allows hacker to take full control of the device by just sending you a bugged message.

The team trace down the vulnerabilities known as “zero-day”. These bugs are given such a name that the users are given lesser time to find solution.

Hackers to break in, send message with malicious code, where the users just need to open the message and the crook gets to remotely access your phone. From there the hackers can copy your files, photographs, message and your bank details.

The issue is not only figured for iPhone but similar techniques can be used for Mac or iPad.

Apple has requested its users to update their phones to iOS 12.4, the latest version of software to address the patch.

Apple is still considered to be the trusted brand by the users in terms of privacy and security. But past few months the tech company has been sliding on and off in the privacy portion.

Last month, the company had identified flaws where by using the Apple Watch’s Walkie Talkie app, they could easily spy on the iPhone owners.
