Apple claims that the vulnerabilities revealed in the CIA hacking tool revealed by WikiLeaks have already been fixed in the latest version of the operating system powering the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices.
In a statement issued to the Telegraph, an Apple spokesperson said: "Apple is deeply committed to safeguarding our customers' privacy and security.
The technology built into today's iPhone represents the best data security available to consumers, and we're constantly working to keep it that way.
Our products and software are designed to quickly get security updates into the hands of our customers, with nearly 80% of users running the latest version of our operating system."
"While our initial analysis indicates that many of the issues leaked today were already patched in the latest iOS, we will continue work to rapidly address any identified vulnerabilities.
We always urge customers to download the latest iOS to make sure they have the most recent security updates," the spokesperson asserted.
