  • Apple’s recent computers are affected by a serious flaw dubbed GoFetch.
  • The flaw affects computers powered by the M1, M2, and M3 processors.

Apple Mac computers have been powered by in-house Arm-based processors since 2020, bringing a major horsepower and efficiency boost over rival computers. However, it turns out that these Apple Silicon chips have a vulnerability that can’t be fixed.

A team of researchers (h/t: Ars Technica) discovered the so-called GoFetch flaw in Apple’s M1, M2, and M3 series of computer processors. The threat allows someone to extract security keys from these chips, breaking encryption as a result.
