iOS Users Urged to Update Software After Security Flaws Are Found
To the FIT Community:
Apple has announced vulnerabilities on the iPad and iPhone that allows an attacker to take full control of your device, including turning on your microphone and camera and/or recording all your keystrokes. The attack is delivered by sending you a specially designed text that includes a link: If you click on the link, the malware gets installed.
To prevent this, Apple has released a new version of iOS (version 9.3.5) that patches this vulnerability. You should upgrade immediately by clicking on Settings/General/Software Update. In addition, you should always be careful to only click on links in emails and texts from people you know and when the communication makes sense.
