iOS 9.3.5 fixes three massive security vulnerabilities
Apple's recently released iOS 9.3.5 updates fixes three critical security vulnerabilities discovered in previous versions of iOS 9. The vulnerabilities allow malicious actors to remotely jailbreak an iPhone (through the use of a malicious link that can be distributed via text message) and then install sophisticated malware that could be used to intercept phone calls, text messages, and email.
The exploit was initially discovered on August 11. After Apple was informed of the vulnerabilities, it was able to implement a fix in 10 days.
CyberShack advises all iPhone and iPad owners to update to their devices to 9.3.5 immediately. iOS devices can be updated by opening the Settings app, tapping on General, and selecting Software Update.
The exploits have also been addressed in as of iOS 10 beta 6, for users in the public beta test.
