Apple Users Told To Update Devices Immediately, Following Security Flaw

Affecting the iPhone, iPad, Mac and Smart Watch products, it reportedly allowed them to be exploited by spyware.

The tool, called Pegasus, is said to be able to open and copy text messages, videos, photos and web activity including passwords.

Researchers say it was used on a phone belonging to a Saudi activist.
