Hackers spent 3 months to finding the bugs. The hackers targeted Apple’s web assets after reading about 27-year-old Indian security researcher Bhavuk Jain who recently won $100,000 (over Rs 75.5 lakh) from Apple for discovering a now-patched Zero Day vulnerability in the Sign in with Apple account authentication.

Hackers said some of the vulnerabilities could have allowed an attacker to fully compromise both customer and employee application or take over a victim’s iCloud account. Apple resolved some vulnerabilities within a few hours after being reported.
