For those with technical knowledge, these codes are CVE-2023-41064, CVE-2023-41061, and CVE-2023-35674.

In simpler terms, these vulnerabilities could allow hackers to enter your device, access your private information, and gain full control over your phone or tablet.

The council strongly advises downloading the latest updates from both Apple and Android to ensure your protection.

Citizen Lab, a group that monitors digital threats closely, discovered that spyware linked to the company NSO was taking advantage of the recent vulnerability in Apple devices.

The presence of this spyware on an Apple device from a Washington group came to light when Citizen Lab discovered it.

Apple recommended activating “Lockdown Mode” on Apple devices as a precaution against this attack. This vulnerability could put iPhones at risk, especially those running iOS 16.6, even without any action from the owner.
