Apple Software and ‘Key Services’ Remain Unharmed by ‘Heartbleed’ Security Bug Apple says that its software were not affected by the 'heartbleed' security bug

Apple confirms that ‘Heartbleed’ hasn’t been able to affect the security of its operating systems

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.
