Apple Releases Patch for iPhone, iPad After Israeli Spyware is Discovered

Apple Releases Patch for iPhone, iPad After Israeli Spyware is Discovered:

Apple issued a security update for those devices Thursday after researchers discovered spyware that turns hand-held Apple devices into the mother of all snoops, allowing remote operators to intercept all voice and data communications and pass along every photograph and video.

Researchers said spyware had never been found before this month that could “jailbreak” an iPhone or iPad and seize total control of its functions.

Efforts to use the spyware have surfaced in Mexico and the United Arab Emirates, where critics of the government appear to have been targeted for surveillance….

The Israeli company thought to have produced the spyware said in a statement that it insisted that governments that bought its products use them only in lawful ways….

Apple Inc. was notified by Citizen Lab and Lookout on Aug. 15 of the vulnerability in the iPhones and iPads, and it said the security update provided Thursday blocked the use of Trident spyware.
