These emergency updates fix a critical vulnerability in these products that allows the spyware Pegasus to invisibly install without requiring you to do anything. Once infected, Pegasus can then access everything on the device, including the cameras & microphones, encrypted emails & messages, and texts.
You should install these critical updates on your devices as soon as possible to reduce the vulnerability to this spyware. Listed below are the most up-to-date patches for each device:
