Apple has issued an emergency software update after a cyber surveillance company created an invasive spyware that could infect any iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch or Mac Computer.
Toronto-based internet watchdog security group Citizen Lab said that NSO, the surveillance company which is an Israeli spyware company, developed the tool with a technique that could easily exploit Apple software.
Citizen Lab said the spyware is called Pegasus and is a “zero click iPhone exploit.”
Neither Apple or NSO has confirmed these statements by Citizen’s Lab.
Apple said they corrected the critical vulnerability in a software update. If you have an Apple product listed above, be sure you do the software update immediately.
