Apple iPhone security update spyware discovery

Post by 308Mike » Thu Sep 01, 2016 6:29 pm

Apple issues iPhone security update after spyware discovery (FoxNews.com). Apple products are NOT immune to malware/viruses/hacking, etc., etc.

Apple is in deep trouble, most of their revenue is from Iphones, which continue to loose market share, and with no new "killer app" on the horizon, the first losses in a decade just posted are likely just the beginning.

Nope, but who said "social engineering" is dead??? And you and I BOTH know that many intrusion attacks come through venues at the clerical (BORED) level.

*Yawn*

In other news, door locks and alarms don't work if the homeowner gives the burglar the key/code.
