‘Scary’ Apple Vision Pro bug allows hackers to fill room with spiders, bats

Talk about a software bug.

A tech expert has discovered an “unusually terrifying vulnerability” in Apple Vision Pro headsets that could allow hackers to flood your virtual reality with spiders, bats, and other creepy horrors.

This means that while you’re sitting quietly in your living room with your headgear on, swarms of spiders could emerge from cyberspace and a flock of bats could fly overhead and crawl towards you.

This includes anything, such as sound, that infringes on your augmented reality location.

Researcher Ryan Pickren recently discovered a creepy security gap caused by opening malicious websites in Safari. I wrote about How easily users can become trapped in a never-ending nightmare.

Essentially, all a person has to do is accidentally visit the wrong website and lose their mind.

“This allows a malicious website to circumvent all warnings and force-fill a room with any number of animated 3D objects,” Pickren said, adding, “without any user interaction whatsoever.”

“Even better, these features are available out of the box by default, so victims don’t need to enable any special experimental features.”

On the other hand, having to carry out virtual pest control after an attack is like rubbing salt in the wound.

“There’s no obvious way to remove them other than manually running around the room and physically tapping each one,” he added.

“They won’t be deleted even if you close Safari.”

Luckily, Apple has since addressed the bug. The company recently announced.
