The UAE Cyber Security Council said Apple’s emergency update addressed a serious security vulnerability with CVE-2023-41064, CVE-2023-41061 and CVE-2023-35674 for Android users.

The authority has advised users to install the latest updates pushed out by Apple and Android to combat the security concern.

As per the statement issued, ‘unauthorised access to sensitive information and full control of the device’.

Digital watchdog group Citizen Lab said they found spyware they linked to cyber intelligence firm NSO that exploited a newly discovered flaw in Apple devices.

While inspecting the Apple device of an employee of a Washington-based civil society group last week, Citizen Lab said it found the flaw had been used to infect the device with NSO’s spyware, it said in a statement.

Citizen Lab said Apple confirmed to them that using the high-security feature “Lockdown Mode” available on Apple devices blocks this particular attack.

The flaw allowed the compromise of iPhones running the latest version of iOS (16.6) without any interaction from the victim, the digital watchdog said.

The new update fixes this vulnerability.

As per the Digital Times Asia report, iPhone 15 Pro series will be launched with inflated prices because of the chassis upgrades from stainless steel to titanium.

Additionally, Apple is unveiling the iPhone 15 Pro Max with the periscope lens upgrade for performing 5-6x optical zoom.
