Hackers can now break into your Apple devices just by sending you an iMessage. Once the hacker accesses the iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, iPod Touch, or Mac computer, they can grab data, record calls, steal passwords and more. This is a big one.
University of Toronto’s research group The Citizen Lab has revealed this vulnerability in Apple’s iMessage, and titled it FORCEDENTRY. This is a zero-click attack, meaning hackers can break into just about any Apple device by sending it an iMessage. FORCEDENTRY requires no response from the recipient.
Fortunately, Apple has released a security update that eliminates the FORCEDENTRY vulnerability.
