Apple says Mail app vulnerabilities don’t post an ‘immediate risk’ to users

Apple has downplayed the danger of a Mail bug disclosed recently by a security firm, according to a tweet from analyst Rene Ritchie. According to ZecOps, the app has a zero-day exploit that could let attackers infect your iOS device even if you don’t click on links or take other actions. Furthermore, ZecOps said it had evidence that attackers had attempted to use the flaw for at least two years against six or more potential targets around the world.
