Accessing personal data from third-party applications is often the way Apple has to deal with constantly to protect the safety of its users. However, a newly discovered error may be affected is a traditional iOS email app, on those devices with iOS 6 on iPhone and iPad.
According to a report published by American cybersecurity company ZecOps, the iPhone has a major flaw in the traditional iOS email system which makes it extremely vulnerable to hackers. The situation is complicated because it also does not require the victim to download some kind of malicious file. In turn, you only need the user to open the email
You have an email and it can be dangerous!
According to publication details, the attack consists of sending a specially designed email to the victim's mailbox that allows her activate the vulnerability in the iOS app source
With the operational details of this threat, ZecOps explains that it does not generate significant changes to devices, more than a a temporary decline in the iOS 13 environment. While in iOS 12 the mail application can be stopped immediately. Recognizing this threat, the company recommends using other email applications, until Apple offers a solution.
After cutting a lot of risks last month, it looks like Apple has done the same with the shortcomings in the Text application in the version of IOS 13.4.5 beta 2, available from April 15. But since it's the first version, a few devices have been installed and we will have to wait for its major deployment to fix its email system.
