A security flaw detected on certain models of iPhone, iPad and Mac

Apple has recommended that owners of certain models of iPhone, iPad and Mac update the operating software, in order to protect themselves from a security flaw allowing them to take control of these devices. Affected are iPhone 6s and later, all iPad Pros, fifth-generation iPads and later, and Macs, according to notices posted on Apple’s website. According to the Apple firm, in the old version of the operating software, “an application can use arbitrary code” with undue access to the device, which means that a hacker can perform actions without authorization.

After the orca and the beluga, a seal spotted in the Seine

Three months after the killer whale was found dead in the river and a week after the beluga’s failed rescue attempt, a harbor seal was spotted on Tuesday evening in the Seine, near Poses-Amfreville downstream. The Waterways of France invite boatmen and fishermen to be extra vigilant. The Eure prefecture has clarified on a daily basis that a colony of seals has been installed for several years in the Seine estuary. “Although rare, this ascent has therefore already happened in the past”, she adds, believing that “the animal should find the estuary on its own”.
