Spyware researchers have captured what they say is a new exploit from NSO Group’s Pegasus surveillance tool targeting iPhones and other Apple devices through iMessage.
Apple issued a patch Monday to close the exploit discovered by researchers at Citizen Lab who said they found the hack in the iPhone records of a Saudi political activist and alerted the company to the problem. washingtonpost.com/technology/202…
The researchers said that the hacking technique used, which they called FORCEDENTRY, has been active since at least February and can invade Apple iPhones, MacBooks and Apple Watches secretly in what is called a “zero-click attack.” washingtonpost.com/technology/202…
The “zero click” capability of Pegasus allows the spyware to install itself on a phone without the owner doing anything, such as clicking a link.

Sept. 11, 2001 claimed the lives of 2,977 innocent people and sparked two wars, both longer by far than any in U.S. history.

These are the stories of how the attacks changed the lives of millions across the world: survivors, rescue workers, service members, refugees and more.
The 19-year-olds, born in the weeks and months after the attack, grieve for fathers who never got to hold them or watch them grow up.
Hundreds of thousands of Afghans and Iraqis displaced by the wars in their home countries have settled in the U.S., their journeys to the land of opportunity spurred by tragedy and loss in the wake of 9/11.
