If you are using Apple-products, you will without a doubt have noticed an urgent message asking to upgrade the software to the newest version last week.
Several security breaches were found by the Citizen Lab organization from the university in Toronto alongside Lookout, which is a corporation that works in the online security industry. The threat was given the codename “Trident” which targeted its attacks against mobile units, primarily smartphones. In short, Trident infected smartphones with spyware, which gave Trident access to monitor all activity on the unit.
Although spyware is rather common these days, the particulars in this attack is that this attack was targeted a very specific group of users. In reality, this means that the spyware can be adapted to the user’s behavior thus resulting in an even greater number of infections due to difficulty of identifying the spyware as a threat by the user.
Fortunately, the security breaches were found and shut down. If you have installed the newest update, you should be fine.
