He even said that saying that Apple users need not worry about security issues as not enough information of only thousands or tens of thousands of victims were only out. Cathcart told The Guardian that such cyberattacks are affecting human rights defenders all around the world and when one person’s phone is not safe, anyone’s phone is not safe.
