New Delhi. In the year 2019, Ryan Pickren noticed many shortcomings in the iPhone. Under these shortcomings, they were allowed to turn on the camera and microphone without the permission of the users. The security vulnerabilities were reported to Apple by Pickren, a PhD student at Georgia Institute of Technology. The company offered the student a $75,000 bounty, also known as a bug bounty, to correct the defect. According to a report by 9to5Mac, Pickren found another vulnerability but this time it was in the Mac webcam. He wrote on his website, “My hack successfully saw a series of cases like this with iCloud sharing and Safari 15 and gained unauthorized camera access. However, for this bug, Victims were asked to open via popup from my website. The result is not only multimedia permission, but more than that. According to Pickren, the bug was quite dangerous as it would have allowed any hacker to access any website visited by the victim. It could have been hacked but also accessed to other accounts such as Gmail, Facebook or iCloud. On his website, Pickren explained how the bug had exploited it and how dangerous it was, he further wrote on his site. He explored how one design flaw in an application can enable many other bugs to become more dangerous, adding, “This could be a great example of how macOS Gatekeeper is enabled even after A hacker can still access users’ apps with malwares.” in July 2021 I Pickren submitted these bugs to Apple. He says he has solved all the cases and was awarded a $100,500 bounty under the bug bounty program. However, it is not confirmed that this could be the biggest bounty that Apple has made under its bug bounty program so far.
