Apple and Samsung promise to repair their security failures after WikiLeaks leaks

The documents reveal that the CIA had managed to bypass the protocols of the iPhone, the Android operating system and Samsung TVs.

Apple and Samsung today reaffirmed their “commitment” to the privacy of their users before the massive leak of WikiLeaks documents , which describe a supposed cyberpirate secret program of the CIA aimed at penetrating smartphones and computers connected to the Internet.

Both multinationals have promised to quickly repair all the vulnerabilities of their products. “Although our preliminary analyzes indicate that many of the leaked issues were already fixed in the latest version of the iOS operating system, we will continue to work quickly to address the vulnerabilities identified,” Apple said in a statement.

The North American manufacturer says that “it is deeply committed to protecting the privacy and security” of its customers and urged them to “always download the latest updates” to ensure the highest level of protection.

Problems in iPhones and Samsung TVs

WikiLeaks said its documents reveal that the CIA had managed to bypass the security protocols of a wide range of companies and products in Europe and the United States, such as the iPhone and the operating system for Android smartphones developed by Google.

Also included are Samsung’s televisions, which can be turned into covert microphones through software allegedly developed by the CIA in collaboration with MI5, the counterintelligence service in the United Kingdom.

The South Korean company also came out of these revelations and stressed that it is a “priority to protect the security and privacy of their devices” and noted that “will urgently investigate these issues.”

At the moment, Google has not offered comments on this alleged espionage on phones that use Android
