Following the discovery of a new attack, Apple sends security patches for iPhones, iPads, and computers

The Toronto-based research group Citizen Lab said it found a vulnerability that it named FORCEDENTRY weaponized against iMessage, Apple‘s messaging application, that targets Apple‘s image rendering library.

Apple issued new security updates Monday following the discovery of a new hack that does not require people to click anything to become a victim.

The lab said it discovered the hack on a Saudi activist’s phone, which the group said was infected by the Israeli tech and spyware firm NSO Group.

“Our latest discovery of yet another Apple zero-day employed as part of NSO Group’s arsenal further illustrates that companies like NSO Group are facilitating ‘despotism-as-a-service’ for unaccountable government security agencies,” wrote the Citizen Lab researchers in their report disclosing the vulnerability. “Regulation of this growing, highly profitable, and harmful marketplace is desperately needed.”

NSO Group did not address Citizen Lab’s accusations in its response to the researchers’ report and Apple‘s update.
