Apple devices Malware - Upgrade urgently!

After I sent the newsletter last week, I was alerted to what is one of the largest Apple exploits. The exploit can affect every possible Apple device on the planet - iPhone, iPads, etc. With a click, the virus can steal the information from your phone, intercept calls, messages, steal emails, contacts, etc.

You will find the upgrade waiting in the Settings icon of your device. I urge anyone to upgrade urgently if you have not done this already.

All due to a "feature" Signalling System 7 (SS7). The switching protocol is insecure. The solution - it may sound cynical - but adjust your habits for the moment and remember no conversation is really safe.
