iPhone users are being urged to update their devices after Apple released a security patch.
The patch will block Pegasus spyware, which is reportedly capable of stealing information, passwords and even activating the phone's microphone and camera.
The fix was released on Monday following research by Citizen Lab a Canada-based cybersecurity group.
Apple discovered the flaw while analyzing the iPhone of a Saudi activist and urged users to immediately update all their Apple devices.
