Canon Middle East Launches Door-to-Door Recycling Collection Service for Dubai Customers



Canon Middle East has announced a positive development in the continued commitment to communities and sustainability with a one-month long customer collection service for those looking to continue to recycle their e-waste. Canon Middle East’s authorised recycler in the UAE, Color Code, has been selected to support collection from customers’ homes. Collectable items include Canon consumables such as ink, toner, batteries, and paper as well as electronic waste such as old printers, cameras, and scanners.

The initiative is aligned with wider efforts on the part of Canon to support the achievement of the United Nation’s Sustainability Goals (SDGs) with an environmentally conscious approach to the manufacturing and recycling of its products. Commenting on the initiative, Mai Youssef, Corporate Communications and Marketing Services Director, Canon Africa, Middle East, and Turkey, said, “As a business, we’ve been doing all we can to support the continuation of our activities despite the current environment. We are steadfastly committed to our corporate sustainability responsibilities and one of these is our effort towards a clearer and more circular economy. Aligned with our corporate philosophy of kyosei – which means living and working together for the common good – we wanted to ensure that we continue to support our customers with positive and meaningful initiatives with a positive impact, whilst adhering to government guidelines and ensuring we all stay safe, at home.”

“Canon is committed to a ‘no waste’ to landfill policy. Toner cartridges are recycled as far as possible – be it as a component in a new toner cartridge, as a base material in other industries. Between 1990 and 2018, Canon recycled more than 408,000 tonnes of cartridges globally, saving more than 601,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions,” the company said.

To participate, customers simply need to fill in an online form with the details of their items for recycling as well as their home address and contact details, and collection will be implemented within 48 hours of the request:

Apple Detects Spyware Targeting iPhones in Multiple Countries



Apple has issued a second spyware attack warning to iPhone users in 98 countries, raising concerns about the growing threat to mobile security. This follows a similar alert in April targeting users in 92 countries.

While specific details about the latest attacks remain under wraps, the alert serves as a stark reminder of the evolving threat landscape. India is one confirmed country where users received the notification.

Spyware, a particularly invasive type of malware, can grant attackers complete access to an iPhone, including encrypted messages, audio, and video. The notorious Pegasus spyware from NSO Group is a well-known example.

“Apple detected that you are being targeted by a mercenary spyware attack that is trying to remotely compromise the iPhone associated with your Apple ID -xxx-,” Apple wrote in its new spyware alert.

Adding to the concern, researchers recently revealed the return of LightSpy, a “particularly dangerous” campaign capable of pinpointing a target’s location with “near-perfect accuracy.”

The worrying aspect of these attacks is their ability to exploit “zero-click” vulnerabilities, meaning infection can occur without any user interaction, such as opening a malicious link or attachment.

This highlights the importance of remaining vigilant and following Apple’s security recommendations, which may include updating your device to the latest iOS version.
