The Apple M1 chip has been a wildly successful release for the Cupertino tech giant, but new research from MIT says that the chip powering everything from the Apple MacBook Pro to the latest iPad Air has a major security flaw that by its nature cannot be fixed in a security update.

The flaw was exposed in a new paper from MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) (opens in new tab) researchers and exploits something known as pointer authentification code (PAC). Essentially, PAC works by checking a digital signature to ensure that a program’s code hasn’t been changed maliciously.
