Researchers find new way to infect Apple devices with spyware
Apple devices were found to be vulnerable to a newly discovered flaw that could be exploited to install spyware without the victim's knowledge.
The flaw was discovered by researchers at Citizen Lab, who found it on an Apple device belonging to an employee of a Washington-based civil society group. The flaw allowed the installation of NSO Group's Pegasus spyware, which is a powerful tool that can be used to track and monitor a target's activity.
Apple has since issued a security update that fixes the vulnerability. However, it is important for users to update their devices as soon as possible to protect themselves from this type of attack.
NSO Group, the Israeli firm that developed Pegasus, has been accused of using the spyware to target journalists, activists, and government officials. The company has denied these allegations.
This incident highlights the importance of security updates. It is important for users to keep their devices up to date with the latest security patches to protect themselves from vulnerabilities like this one.
