In addition to the latest Pegasus revelations and concerns that our phones may be unsafe, we have again focused on the use of spyware. This time, Apple is focusing on iPhones and their security, and the company has always been popular in its ads. But experts say it’s like a long struggle to protect yourself from the latest spyware.
“Contrary to what Apple says in the public domain about all security improvements and what you call them, there are a lot of minor damages. It is easy for NSOs to collect or develop their own exploits. It’s very profitable, ”he said, pointing out that the exploiters could sell for millions of dollars. Venkatanarayanan says that for the past year and a half, multiple zero-day damage has been detected in iMessage and Apple has tried to use blastdoor technology to prevent this. “Historically, it doesn’t work.”
Apple has tried to secure iMessage with iOS 14 blastdoor technology using iOS 14, a sandbox technology designed to protect only the messaging system. It processes all incoming iMessage traffic and transfers only secure data to the operating system.As Amnesty International’s forensic analysis of iPhones infected with Pegasus spyware shows, it was able to overcome the NSO group’s ‘zero-click’ attacks. The ‘Zero-Click’ attack requires no intervention from the target, and according to Amnesty, the fully patched iPhone 12 was tracked until July 2021 on iOS 14.6 running iOS 14.6.
