Top Tech News – August 3: OnePlus China event cancelled, Apple security warning and more

Hello and welcome to the Top Tech News edition and today we look at the security warning issued by CERT-In for Apple users in India, OnePlus and Motorola canceling their event in China, and Xiaomi AR Glasses is entering the fray.

Apple users receive security warnings from CERT-In.

Apple MacBook users have recently received a security alert from the Indian Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-IN). The notification states that macOS has been reported with multiple vulnerabilities.

The post states that Apple macOS versions Catalina, Big Sur and Monterey are vulnerable if you are using them with security updates prior to 2022-005, versions 11.6.8 and 12.5. Likewise, if you have an iPhone or iPad, versions prior to 15.6 are affected.

According to the CERT-IN post, a remote attacker could exploit the issue to execute arbitrary code and bypass security restrictions on the targeted system. In iPhones and iPads, these high-risk vulnerabilities have been found to exist due to buffer overflows in AppleAVD, as well as out-of-bounds writes in audio, GPU drivers, ICU, and WebKit.

OnePlus and Motorola launch events canceled in China

OnePlus and Motorola have canceled their events, reportedly due to last-minute developments in the country.

Motorola abruptly canceled its event last night just hours before the launch. Lenovo’s general manager for China announced the development in a social media post. According to reports, this is happening due to the geo-political situation of the country. Later, OnePlus also confirmed that it is scrapping its China event for the OnePlus Ace Pro, which is launching globally as the OnePlus 10T 5G.

Geopolitical tensions in China are said to be the reason for OnePlus and Motorola canceling their launch events. Tensions in China are high due to the visit of US Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who visited Taiwan on August 2. Pelosi, who has been a vocal critic of China, visited Taiwan on August 2, and China is apparently unhappy with Pelosi’s visit.
