A complaint targeting Apple’s communication on the Meltdown and Specter hacks dismissed by the courts

For the second time, a potential class action targeting Apple’s communication on the Meltdown and Specter hacks has just been dismissed by the courts. The original lawsuit, filed in 2018, accused Apple of failing to properly inform users that the iPhone was vulnerable to Meltdown and Specter hacks. In 2019, a district judge rebutted the lawsuit, arguing that the plaintiffs had “selectively read” the information provided by Apple.

This time, it is the turn of judge Edward Davila of San Jose (California) to dismiss a second complaint, a carbon copy of that of 2018. The complainants, who wished to bring a class action if the justice had registered the procedure, believe that Apple hid vulnerabilities in the iPhone and as a result the price of the iPhone was overpriced as a device that guarantees user security and privacy.

The judge further found that Apple had not “lied” about the speed of the new processors in the iPhone and that overall, localized incidents among a small number of users did not make Apple’s marketing claims false. . Plaintiffs can still put a part in the machine as of June 30. Justice is a good girl…
