Update Now: Major Apple Device Zero-Day Vulnerability FORCEDENTRY

On Monday Apple released fixes for security defects in iOS and macOS which are being actively exploited in the wild. While Apple did not provide details there is enough information on the web to learn just how bad these vulnerabilities are.

Effectively, a hacker can gain access to your phone, tablet, or computer and install spyware which controls your camera, microphone, and accesses your data. All they have to do is send a cleverly crafted message. You don’t even have to click it.

macOS Big Sur 11.6
iOS 14.8
iPadOS 14.8

If you know someone who would benefit from this information make sure to forward it to them!
