iPhone users are being warned by Google that they may have been “quietly” hacked by rogue websites.The tech giant says simply visiting a website was enough to let hackers silently hijack your phone – giving them access to your photos, messages and more.According to Google’s cyber-sleuthing Project Zero team, hackers were previously able to gain access to your images and location info. The cyber-experts also warn that the hacking campaign affected most iPhone models, and went on for two years, according to a report. The bug, which has now been fixed, will be worrying for iPhone owners – particularly as the devices are well-known for their privacy and security.“There was no target discrimination – simply visiting the hacked site was enough for the exploit server to attack your site,” said Google’s Ian Beer, who works on the Project Zero team that discovered the bug.Google said that Apple was notified of the issue on February 1, 2019. Apple then patched the flaw six days later, protecting users against the bug.As always, it’s important to keep your iPhone updated with the latest software version to protect yourself against hacks.If you update to the latest software version, you’ll be safe from this particular exploit.“Keeping your software up to date is one of the most important things you can do to maintain your Apple product’s security,” Apple’s support page explains.The easiest way to update your iPhone is wirelessly – just follow these simple steps: Plug your iPhone into a power socket, and connect to a Wi-Fi networkTap Settings > General > Software UpdateTap ‘Download and Install’Tap ‘Install’ to update immediately, or tap ‘Later’ and choose ‘Install Tonight’ to update while your phone is plugged in overnightYou may have to enter your passcodeIf you don’t have enough space for the update on your phone, Apple may ask you if it can temporarily remove some apps from your phone.iPhone users warned over ‘silent hack’ allowing crooks access your phone was last modified: August 31st, 2019 by Staff WriterShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)

2 March 2010 Pretoria’s streets were a sea of yellow and green on Tuesday as South Africans wearing Bafana Bafana jerseys celebrated the 100 days countdown to the 2010 Fifa World Cup. Speaking to BuaNews, vuvuzelas in hand, ordinary South Africans said they wanted to be part of the celebrations, and assured the national team that they were behind them. A second-year student from the University of Pretoria, Samantha Naidoo, 21, said she wouldn’t miss the “once-in-a-lifetime” event for anything. Wearing her yellow jersey, Naidoo said she had already bought tickets for four matches, including the opening game. “It is history in the making, which may never come back in our lifetime, and I want the whole world to see how proud we are of our country,” Naidoo said. Nokwanda Makaula, 34, from the Eastern Cape, said the tournament would put Africa, especially South Africa, on the map. “Generations to come will know that the first world cup in Africa was held here,” Makaula said, adding that she would be watching all the matches at the fan parks. “I would have loved to go to the stadiums, but I don’t have the money, but I’ll watch the games at the fan parks and big screens organised by the municipalities,” Makaula told BuaNews. For 40-year-old Bheki Mkhize from Sunnyside, Pretoria, the World Cup will boost the country’s economy. “Everyone is looking forward to coming to the country, and that means more money for us,” Mkhize said. “After today’s celebrations, no one will ever doubt that the tournament is really coming here and we are ready.” With the little income she gets from selling fruits in central Pretoria, Lynette Tau, 38, said she had managed to buy the national team’s soccer jersey. “I was so excited and saved my money so that I can have enough to buy the jersey, and I did. “I’m a proud South African, and hopefully I will live longer to tell my grandchildren about it,” Tau said, adding that it wasn’t about winning the World Cup, but about proving to the world that the country is capable of hosting big events just like any developed country.

The agitating doctors of government hospitals in Rajasthan have called off their 11-day-long strike following an agreement with the State government that has addressed their concerns. Over 80 doctors were arrested during the strike when the Essential Services Maintenance Act was invoked.The strike ended late on Wednesday night, just two days after the Rajasthan High Court directed the government to proceed “in accordance with law” to bring the in-service doctors back to work. Medical and Health Minister Kali Charan Saraf said there were “some misunderstandings” that had been resolved through the agreement.The government has accepted the doctors’ demand for appointment of a medical expert to the post of Additional Director (Gazetted) in the Directorate of Health Services by replacing an Administrative Officer. On the demand for revocation of transfer of 12 doctors after the earlier strike last month, the government has agreed to post them at places convenient for them.The doctors had gone on mass leave, demanding implementation of an agreement on the issues of dynamic accelerated career promotion, increasing rural allowances of doctors, among others.
