Apple has released a new software update for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch, iOS 9.3.5 and the update has been released to fix a recently discovered security flaw in the OS.
The security flaw was discovered by Citizen Lab and Lookout who have revealed that the flaw was used to install spyware on devices, it was apparently used by government hackers.
Citizen Lab (Munk School of Global Affairs, University of Toronto) and Lookout have uncovered an active threat using three critical iOS zero-day vulnerabilities that, when exploited, form an attack chain that subverts even Apple’s strong security environment. We call these vulnerabilities “Trident.” Our two organizations have worked directly with Apple’s security team, which was very responsive and immediately fixed all three Trident iOS vulnerabilities in its 9.3.5 patch.
