The next company on the list is Apple, which is the largest company in the world with respect to market capitalization. The tech giant has just launched a new software update for the iPhones, in response to the protection of a spyware vulnerability. The company acted upon the research and detail gathered by the researchers at Citizen Lab. Therefore, they went ahead and came up with a software update to cover the exploit and stop it from taking place anymore.
