iPhones at risk of being hijacked by new virus

If you have an iPhone, of any make or model, you might want to read this.

Apparently there's a serious bug in Safari software which allows for a virus to take over the phone. 

It reletes to the risk of popup windows. The virus can reportedly redirect users to malicious pages which wrongly accuse them of searching for illegal pornagraphy or copyrighted content.  

Lookout, the mobile phone security company, found the weakness, which affects all versions of IOS up to 10.2. 

But there's good news: it's not too difficult to solve the problem and protect yourself from the virus.

All that has to be done, in fact, is clear the browser cache or update the internal operating system to the latest model, 10.3.
