Following the publication of Re/code’s report about Apple’s system being affected with a security issue, called the ‘Heartbleedt,” the Cupertino company has revealed a statement, claiming that all its software and application are free from the specific bug.

According to Mac Rumors, a spokesperson from Apple rejects the security flaw. He said, “Apple takes security very seriously. iOS and OS X never incorporated the vulnerable software and key web-based services were not affected.”

Earlier, Re/code states that Apple’s operating systems have been affected with a very serious bug, known as the “Heartbleed,” which enables the hacker to intrude important user data, including user name and password. According to Bruce Schneier, a security blogger, it is one of the most dangerous security issues, as on “the scale of 1 to 10, this is an 11.”

However, the Apple consumers can relax as the company assures that its operating systems and other apps are free from the specific bug.
