Emergency iOS Update Patches Zero Days Used by Government Spyware

Apple rushed an emergency iOS update that patches three zero days being exploited in spyware sold to oppressive governments to monitor human rights activists and journalists. The zero days, called Trident, allow an attacker to take complete control of an iPhone or iPad with just one click. The three separate zero-days create an attack chain that can compromise even Apple s latest model iOS devices. Users are urged to update iOS devices to version 9.3.5.0. The vulnerabilities were privately disclosed to Apple by Citizen Lab, which is based at the Munk School of Global Affairs.
