Zero-Day Exploit Targets Apple Users


Update to iOS 16.6.1 

If you’re an Apple user with an interest in cryptocurrencies, consider updating your device’s software immediately. Recent security vulnerabilities have made iOS and iPadOS susceptible to attacks—making your digital assets more vulnerable than ever. 

Discovery of the Zero-Click Vulnerabilities 

Cybersecurity experts at Citizen Lab were the first to spot these vulnerabilities, identifying them as zero-click attacks that can compromise digital assets. In response, Apple has rolled out timely security updates to counteract these threats. 

Guarding Against Zero-Click Attacks 

Zero-click attacks can compromise your device without any action from you, posing a serious risk to your security. For more information on how to defend against these threats, check out our comprehensive Zero-Click Malware Guide. 

Learn how attacks like this don't even need a click to compromise your system.

If you’re concerned about zero-click threats impacting your business, our Incident Response Team provides immediate, expert analysis and solutions for current threats. Learn more on our Incident Response Page. 

Next Steps 

Here’s your action plan for securing your device: 

  • Update to iOS/iPadOS 16.6.1. This is the most immediate step. 
  • Double-check your device’s security settings.
