The Government of India has issued major security warning for Apple users in the nation. The Indian Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-In) has recently released a new security bulletin date March 19.

In the bulletin, the government has issued security alerts for Apple Watch, Apple TV, Mac and even the Vision Pro users.

Further, the Government body has also urged Apple users to install the latest versions of the products. Addressing the vulnerability, Apple has already released latest updated versions of numerous Apple products.
