All you need to know about Pegasus spyware

Cult of Mac Today
Pegasus is a fascinating beast. It’s state-of-the-art spyware that is supposedly sold only to governments to fight crime and terrorism, but it is showing up on devices owned by activists, politicians, journalists and others.
It dates back to at least iOS 7 and exploits vulnerabilities in Apple’s operating system. But as fast as Apple can patch any openings, Pegasus finds new ones to exploit.
It can infect devices secretly, without any interaction from the owner. Sometimes that occurs over fake cellphone towers that intercept all traffic.
If you want to know more, check out our FAQ, which also tells you how to check if Pegasus has infected your devices.

I think one of my favorite iOS 15 features is the Weather app redesign. Really like having more info, like I’m obsessive about staying out of sun so it’s nice to have a heads up when the UV index is going to drop. Temperature map is also nifty. https://t.co/seIev7OsXj
One more thing ...
“And so I haven’t got any sort of odd chip on my shoulder about proving anything to myself or anybody else. And remember, though the outside world looks at success from a numerical point of view, my yardstick might be quite different than that. My yardstick may be how every computer that’s designed from here on out will have to be at least as good as a Macintosh.” – Steve Jobs
