Russian cybersecurity firm Kaspersky has uncovered a new threat called ‘Operation Triangulation,’ revealing that it infects iOS devices, including 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.

For a long time, it was widely believed that Apple devices were impervious to breaches by criminals. However, it has now come to light that threat actors can gain control over the physical memory of these devices and take command.

According to a report by Kaspersky’s Global Research and Analysis Team (GReAT), those involved in ‘Operation Triangulation’ are disseminating zero-click exploits through iMessages and the Safari web browser.

Apple Inc. has responded to this newly discovered issue by issuing a fix in its latest software update. In addition, the company has urged users to keep their device software up to date and cautioned against clicking on suspicious links sent by unknown sources through email, messages, or calls, as this can lead to the leakage of sensitive information.

For all the MacBook and iPhone enthusiasts out there, an exciting event titled “Scary Fast” is on the horizon, scheduled for October 30, 2023. This event promises the best Halloween deals of the season from the technology services provider, and you can catch a glimpse of it through Apple TV devices, YouTube streaming, or the official website.
