One of the changes Apple announced at WWDC earlier this year that will come to Apple’s service is iCloud Private Relay. Basically, this feature is supposed to help prevent third party tracking of IP addresses, user locations, and more – essentially, it’s supposed to provide better privacy for users.
However, it seems that some bug in the system made it quite unsafe. This was discovered by researcher and developer Sergey Mostsevenko, who found that a bug actually resulted in the user’s IP address being leaked. A proof of concept for this bug in action can be found on the FingerprintJS website.
The good news is that the bug appears to have been patched in the latest beta of macOS Monterey, but it remains unpatched in iOS 15, but we imagine Apple should join in at some point.
