  3. Have you updated your iPhone software yet?

    Users who have not updated their iPhone remain at risk of a ransomware attack where money is demanded to unlock the handset's browser .

    A pop-up screen accuses the phone owner of accessing illegal pornography or pirating music and it can't be removed.

    However the ransomware is fake - and clearing the browser cache is actually enough to restore full access.

    The attackers demand £100 in the form of an iTunes gift card with the code sent via text message to a designated mobile number, said security firm Lookout in a blog about the malware.

    "The attack doesn't actually encrypt any data and hold it ransom,"  wrote its security researchers .

    A patch closed the loophole but Professor Alan Woodward, cybersecurity expert at Surrey University said some iPhone users have put off the update because it also includes other changes to the running of the device.

    "Some people have held off thinking it sounds fairly major, but obviously if they do that they won't get the protection," he said.

  4. Defibrillator vandalism: This is the damage
