A new security flaw, referred to as GoFetch, has been discovered in the Apple Silicon architecture for Mac computers. The security flaw could allow malicious actors with access to your machine to extract sensitive information, including passwords and secret cryptographic keys. Because the issue affects the Mac computer hardware directly, it is unlikely that it can be patched by Apple or completely mitigated by S&T IT. 

To stay safe, remember to always exercise safe computing practices. The best way to stay safe is to only run software from trusted sources. To learn about GoFetch, the vulnerability, or how to mitigate your risks, visit the IT Answers article on this topic.
