Apple has released an official statement to Re/Code to tell users that its services have not been affected by Heartbleed. This means iOS, OSX, and other “key Web-based services” are safe from the now infamous security flaw that has drawn serious attention to how Internet companies protect their systems.
The Re/Code statement reads:
“Apple takes security very seriously. IOS and OS X never incorporated the vulnerable software and key Web-based services were not affected,” an Apple spokesperson told Re/code.
If you are concerned over Heartbleed, we suggest you check out the latest Heartbleed site checker, which will give you a comprehensive search function for checking if sites have been affected by the bug.
We also recommend that you begin changing passwords for sites once it is clear that they have been made safe.
