  Breaking News Alert!  
 
Apple issues critical emergency security patch updates for iPads, iPhones, Mac computers, & watches, that you should install NOW!
September 13, 2021
Apple and major security researchers are urging users of Apple devices to immediately update the operating systems in their devices, to patch a serious iMessage security flaw that is known to have already infected deices "in the wild".

Utilizing code from a malware package known as Pegasus, this variant, which has been dubbed "FORCEDENTRY" by the research group Citizen Lab, due to its ability to bypass "BlastDoor" protections that Apple had added to its operating system, to attempt to block such attacks.

While it seems that devices so far have been selectively targeted, as time goes on, malware is often put to use by a wider array of attackers, to compromise devices used by average people, and this attack requires NO INTERACTION on the part of a user. If your device is unpatched, and can receive iMessage messages, then IT IS VULNERABLE.

Apple's security patches will update devices to iOS & iPad OS 14.8, macOS Big Sur 11.6, macOS Catalina (security update 2021-005), and watchOS 7.6.2 for the respective devices.

Although devices that cannot run iOS / iPad OS 14, MacOS 10.15 or 16, or watchOS7 will not be able to be updated with a patch for this vulnerability, most devices that can't would be at least several years old. A list of iPhones that can run iOS 14 & iPads that can run iPad OS 14 can be found here, all Mac computers that can run (at least) MacOS 10.15 Catalina can be found here, and as for Apple watches, the original & 2nd generation watches will not be able to install this patch, but all watches from generation 3 onward are capable of running both watchOS 7 & 8.

Several good articles detailing the Pegasus malware and FORCEDENTRY can be found here, here, here, here, & here.
