Charlie Miller, the former hacker that proved many of Apple’s most successful products to be vulnerable to cleverly set up attacks, has been contacted by the US Department of Defense (DoD) to share his insight on the security issues that currently imperil companiesand individuals.

He was invited to NATO’s Cooperative Cyber Defense Center of Excellence in Tallinn, where he talked about the weaknesses currently present in computer networks, reports The Hacker News.

“Basically, I’m giving a talk about some of the breaches that happened recently, the big breaches and do some analysis on what they have in common,” said Miller. “Basically what I conclude is that there are all these vulnerabilities in software.”

Miller is known in the security world for all the vulnerabilities he discovered in Apple products. His most recent find showed how a remote attacker would be able to execute unsigned code from a remote server by using a flaw in iOS.
