The Apple threat notification issue, raised by several Opposition MPs, is now under investigation by the Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-In) and a notice has been sent to the company, as confirmed by IT Secretary S Krishnan. "CERT-In has started its probe... they (Apple) will cooperate in this probe," said Krishnan. Opposition leaders, including Congress head Mallikarjun Kharge and Trinamool Congress MP Mahua Moitra, reported receiving alerts from Apple, cautioning them about "state-sponsored attackers trying to remotely compromise" their iPhones.
