The Apple TV is one of the devices susceptible to hacking, Apple has admitted. This is because of the Meltdown and Spectre bugs that exploit a flaw in Intel chips, which are used by all sorts of Apple devices, including Mac computers, iPhones and iPads, and Apple TVs.
The Apple Watch doesn't use an Intel chip, however, so isn't affected.
While the devices are susceptible to the hack – which would reveal confidential user information like passwords and credit card details – Apple says none have been affected yet.
Apple revealed the details in a blog post.
It advised users to update to the latest software version (that's v11.2 of tvOS for the Apple TV) and to only download software from "trusted sources such as the App Store". That's because in order to exploit your device, the hacker would require a malicious app to be installed on it.
"We continue to develop and test further mitigations for these issues and will release them in upcoming updates of iOS, macOS, tvOS and watchOS," Apple said.
