The National Cybersecurity and Communications Integrations Center and the U. S. Computer Emergency Readiness Teams have shared that a method dubbed as a Masque Attack is being used to hack into iOS operating systems on iPhones and iPads. The “WireLurker” system aims to gain access to log-in credentials sensitive data, and remote monitoring abilities through the affected devices. Refraining from disabling your security measures and only downloading apps from Apple’s App Store are (not surprisingly) the most secure way to avoid the WireLurker. Your iOS tells you not to trust an INSTALL pop-up window? Don’t trust it! While Apple product users should be vigilant as ever, using common sense is your best defense in this latest attack.
