Dec 07, 2021 (WallStreetPR via Comtex) -- Apple Inc /zigman2/quotes/202934861/composite AAPL -1.28% has issued a warning to its users about hackers. The Pegasus has been a problem for about five years, even though it has gone without detection. NSO Group, an Israeli cyber arms firm, made Pegasus in 2016. The firm them sold it to nation-states and governments.
Apple users will send notifications to users Pegasus has affected
As a result of the damages by Pegasus, Apple is suing NSO Group. Meanwhile, the company is sending warnings to users it suspects have fallen victim to the hack. It does this by displaying a notification on the page users see when they sign into applied.apple.com. It will also send an iMessage notification and email to the phone number and address under a user's apple I.D.
Despite this, Apple has stated that its measures might not be very effective. The company has warned that attacks sponsored by governments are often sophisticated, well-funded, and evolve with time. For this reason, these notifications may go to users who Pegasus has not affected and leave those it has.
Apple sent one of the first notifications to a Polish prosecutor questioning the government.
Despite news of the hack, Apple stock value could rise as the omicron strain of the coronavirus strikes. Mega-cap tech is generally expensive because it has defensive characteristics. These characteristics will work to its advantage.
Apple to release VR and mixed reality headsets
Apple has also released more good news as it states that it will launch its VR and mixed reality headers in 2022. The headsets are a precursor to the Apple Glasses, which could arrive a few years later.
Apple does not plan to market the headers to a larger audience. It instead hopes to sell them to app developers. They have deliberately placed the Apple glasses launch after the headset as this will give the app developers a chance to work on their apps. The headsets will also come with software, hardware, and services to help developers familiarize themselves with virtual reality.
Since the launch will be next year, Apple is unlikely to face challenges the global chip shortage has caused.
As Cyber Monday comes, customers will unlikely find Apple discounts on Apple. Fortunately, they can get deals from other retailers selling Apple products, such as Best Buy, B&H Photo, and Amazon.
