This week, Apple announced the first step towards fixing the security holes that allow the company to steal nearly $1 billion from iPhone users.
A group of security researchers at the Dutch company Malwarebytes called “Elysian” exploited the bug to steal $1.2 billion in data from iOS devices running iOS 7, 8 and 10.
Elysians exploits the “exaggeration” bug to compromise users’ iPhones, Macs, tablets and computers.
The bug has been in Apple’s software since 2013.
Apple has been working on a fix for this issue, but that effort has been slow to take off and it is unclear if the company will make the fix available this week.
The flaw has been found on the first three generations of iPhones and Macs and the vulnerabilities have been patched by Apple in the last three years.
Apple also released an update today that includes fixes for some of the exploits and fixes the bug for the first time.
Apple said it was working with security researchers and customers to address the issue.
Apple said it had discovered the vulnerability in its iOS 7 and iOS 8 operating systems.
Apple did not provide details on how many devices it has been affected by the exploits, but said it would notify affected users if they had their phones affected.
