    At first I was not very scared I just say to myself that I just need to be very careful and not open spam mails or SMS links, but after I read more about it, it can affect you just by going to a scam website by just enter the website.

    Just the idea of being infected badly only because I tapped a bad link on google made me think more seriously about this and now I considering updating to 9.3.5. It is a serious security hole that I rarely see before.

    Honestly, what's your opinions about this? Are you considering updating?

    No.

    If the government wants my homescreen/lockscreen caps or my Walgreens spam email and/or my 'Good Morning' text messages to my wife as well as listening in/watching me typing on the computers at work or home then I'm not going to stop them.

    Same here as Eric.
    My iPhone contents are pretty boring.
    I'm sure if any government agency wants to get in they have dozens other ways to spy on us besides this particular spyware exploit.
    Nowadays not many things are hack proof. Digital surveillance is everywhere.
    If the op somehow feels better going up to 9.3.5 then I'd say go for it.

    I don't want to lose my jailbreak, that's why I wanted to know what people here thinks and why they wand to update or not.

    Its just that, since the exploit are known now, I fear we see this spyware way more than before.

    I'm safe.

    I have my tin foil hat on.

    Seriously tho I agree with the guys here.

    I use my iPhone for personal use with no sensative information in it.

    I don't know Erik, I seen some of your 'good morning' texts to your wife(I hacked your phone because it was jailbroken) and some of those texts were pretty sinister looking:)

    What about this pgcheck tweak to check if you have the Pegasus spyware on your iphone? I tried it and it didnt install well on my device. Anyone tried it?

    As "Pegasus" spyware is very expensive to obtain I'd say that unless you're privy to valuable, secret information or information that might be a serious threat to an individual, company or government that has enough money to buy Pegasus then you're probably not ever going to be a victim.
