Apples don’t get infections? How did this happen!

Businesses and consumers are being urged to update their versions of Apple’s iOS to fix three critical, zero-day vulnerabilities that enable attackers to spy on victims

Apple has issued a security update for its iOS operating system after researchers discovered three critical zero-day vulnerabilities used in combination to spy on iPhone users.

Businesses and consumers are being urged to update the operating systems on their Apple mobile devices without delay.

The vulnerabilities, dubbed Trident, were discovered by researchers at the University of Toronto’s Citizen Lab and mobile security firm Lookout.

When exploited, the three vulnerabilities form an attack chain that subverts even Apple’s strong security, enabling attackers to spy on victims by collecting information from apps including Gmail, Facebook, Skype, WhatsApp, Calendar, FaceTime, Line, Mail.Ru and others.
