Apple claims Majority of Security Bugs From The Vault 7 leak Have Been Fixed

According to Apple, many of these vulnerabilities have already been patched in the latest version of iOS, and the company is working to rapidly address the remaining bugs.
The company said in a statement that Apple is deeply committed to safeguarding the customers’ privacy and security. The technology built into today’s iPhone represents the best data security available to consumers, and are constantly working to keep it that way. The products and software are designed to quickly get security updates into the hands of the customers, with nearly 80 percent of users running the latest version of the operating system.
The leak contains numerous references to security flaws in all major operating systems. The document is chilling, as it lists dozens of exploits that could enable the CIA, but also any malicious hacker with knowledge of these exploits, to snoop on your phone, read your text, eavesdrop your conversations and more.
Most of the exploits mentioned are a few years old, and the latest version of Apple’s mobile operating system, iOS 10, isn’t mentioned anywhere. However, one has to wonder whether a newer version of this document exists somewhere,
The list of Android exploits is equally worrisome, listing numerous security flaws as well as programs and techniques that can be used to breach the security of various Android devices.
