The guys from Cupertino released iOS 14.7.1 last week, a version that will almost in all likelihood be the last update to receive iOS 14. With the release of iOS 14.7.1, the previous version had its days numbered. Said and done, Apple has stopped signing iOS 14.7, a version that fix excessive battery consumption of iOS 14.6 and this was repeated with iOS 14.7.1.
iOS 14.7.1 was a minor update that fixed several security vulnerabilities. In addition, he also fixed the Apple Watch Unlock Failed for iPhone Users with Touch ID
And I say supposedly because Apple hasn’t commented on it. The worst thing about the Pegasus software is that if the zero-day vulnerability available in iOS 14.7 has been fixed, they will start to use another vulnerability the same kind you’ve bought from the security experts who spot them and see it much more profitable to sell them to that type of company than to the company itself.
The problem with zero-day vulnerabilities is that they are in the operating system from the first release and that the creators are not aware of. Ignoring its existence, they cannot patch it under any circumstances
IPhone is not as secure as Apple says it is
After detecting the NSO company’s use of Pegasus on any mobile device, including the iPhone, let’s see how Apple can justify to the authorities that the walled garden of the App Store implies security for the user
Either way, if you want your smartphone to stay secure, the best thing to do is to update to the latest version available at any time.
If you are a politician, journalist, activist, or have a business that deals with risk information, the best thing to do is to use Signal, although if we take this into account Pegasus could access all content on the deviceThe same is not at all useful, and the only option left is to revert to the traditional method of letters or, failing that, fax if the information you want to share is urgent.
