Apple has a tendency to shift industries, and usually that's a good thing. However, in one particular case, it appears that one of the company's newest products are being associated with something that isn't so great: car thefts. Which is surely a little frustrating, considering Apple was getting plenty of flack for not being the first to market with a small device used to track devices.

Apple has acknowledged that it's aware of a serious vulnerability plaguing its personal item tracker, dubbed AirTag. The nasty bug allows nefarious actors to redirect the person who finds and scans a lost AirTag to a phishing website instead of the Apple one. The company has confirmed it is working on a fix, saying the solution will be arriving in the next software update.
