Mac password flaw leaves Apple red-faced 


Apple, along with Google, Amazon and Microsoft, are currently working to secure their devices from the Meltdown and Spectre flaws which are present in their product’s hardware.  The bug is present in Intel, AMD and ARM microprocessors, which power billions of devices, including iPads, iPhones, smartphones, PCs and Macs.  It could allow hackers to remotely access all the files stored on a device including encryption keys, passwords and web history.

 On Tuesday, Intel boss Brian Krzanich said 90 per cent of devices affected by the Meltdown and Spectre flaws would be patched within two weeks.
