January 5, according to Reuters, Apple said today that the major chipmakers disclosure vulnerabilities in almost all modern computing devices vulnerable to hackers, the company will be released in a few days for the iPhone, iPad, and Mac Safari Safari Patch.


On Wednesday, Google and other security researchers revealed two major chip defects, one affecting only Intel chips, while the other called "ghost" chips that affected almost all of the computer chips produced over the past decade. The news triggered investors to sell Intel shares because investors tried to measure the cost of chip makers.

Apple said in a statement on its Web site that all Macs and iOS devices are affected by "crashes" and "ghosts". But the latest system updates for Macs, Apple TVs, iPhones and iPads protect users from the "crashing" effect without slowing down the device. Apple added that "crash" did not affect the Apple Watch.

The other flaw, "Ghost," is that it can easily attack Mac and iOS devices with code running in web browsers. Apple said they will release patches for their Safari browser in the coming days.
