Recently, the Apple security team issued six official announcements to thank Tencent Blade Team for revealing the SQLite vulnerability and prompting users to update its software, including its iPhone, iPad, MacBook, iMac, Apple Watch, Apple TV and other popular products.
Magellan's vulnerability has a huge impact. Besides Apple, Google's Chromium browsers and Google Home devices have also been affected.

At present, Tencent Blade Team has joined Google, Apple, Facebook, Microsoft and SQLite official security groups to promote vulnerability repair progress. At the same time, Tencent Blade Team also reminds users to pay attention to system and software update notifications in a timely manner and upgrade SQLite to the latest version 3.26.0.
This is not the first time Tencent Blade Team has played the role of a security guard for the Internet. Since Tencent Blade Team was founded by Tencent Security Platform two years ago, the team has been devoted to the research of Internet frontier technology security. At present, Tencent Blade Team has found more than 100 security vulnerabilities in many well-known international manufacturers, such as Google, Apple, Amazon, Microsoft, etc., and has been widely recognized by the Internet industry, manufacturers and the international security community. Tencent Blade Team hopes that through these research on Internet frontier attack and defense technology, it can effectively enhance industry security awareness and provide important reference for the advance layout of enterprise security strategy.

It is widely embedded in Web browsers, Android and iOS applications, desktop software, and thousands of applications of popular Internet of Things devices in time. The vulnerability has a large impact and a wide range of implications, and is expected to have a sustained impact in the next three years.
