Apple: latest WikiLeaks CIA hacks to iPhones fixed long ago

USATODAY - Tech Top Stories 

SAN FRANCISCO – Apple said late Thursday it had patched years ago any of the alleged CIA hacks to its iPhone and Mac released by WikiLeaks earlier in the day and that it has "not negotiated with Wikileaks for any information." "We have preliminarily assessed the Wikileaks disclosures from this morning. Based on our initial analysis, the alleged iPhone vulnerability affected iPhone 3G only and was fixed in 2009 when iPhone 3GS was released," the company said in a statement to USA TODAY. "Additionally, our preliminary assessment shows the alleged Mac vulnerabilities were previously fixed in all Macs launched after 2013." Leaks website WikiLeaks early Thursday released new documents it claims are from the Central Intelligence Agency which show the CIA had the capability to bug iPhones even if their operating systems have been deleted and replaced.
