In recent news, Russian cybersecurity firm Kaspersky has uncovered a new threat called ‘Operation Triangulation’ that targets iOS devices such as iPads and iPhones. This revelation came during the Security Analyst Summit (SAS) in Phuket, where Kaspersky also released a technical paper detailing the vulnerability that online criminals may have already exploited. This discovery challenges the widely held belief that Apple devices are impervious to breaches by criminals.
According to Kaspersky’s Global Research and Analysis Team (GReAT), those involved in ‘Operation Triangulation’ are spreading zero-click exploits through iMessages and the Safari web browser. This means that users can be infected without even interacting with the malicious content. Apple Inc. has responded to this issue by issuing a fix in its latest software update. They have also urged users to keep their device software up to date and to be cautious when clicking on suspicious links sent by unknown sources through email, messages, or calls to prevent the leakage of sensitive information.
On a different note, Apple enthusiasts can look forward to an upcoming event titled “Scary Fast” scheduled for October 30, 2023. This event promises exciting Halloween deals from Apple, and it can be accessed through Apple TV devices, YouTube streaming, or the official website.
