Apple rushes to block 'zero-click' iPhone spyware
Apple has issued a software patch to block so-called "Zero-click" spyware that could infect iPhones and iPads. The researchers said that the previously unknown vulnerability affected all major Apple devices, including iPhones, Macs and Apple Watches. Security experts have said that although the discovery is significant, most users of Apple devices should not be overly concerned as such attacks are usually highly targeted. Apple said in a blog post that it had issued the iOS 14.8 and iPadOS 14.8 software patches after it became aware of a report that the flaw "May have been actively exploited". Apple's iMessage is one of the most secure messaging apps in the world but clearly it had a dangerous weakness that a hacking team found and exploited.
