Hacked iPhones and iPads just opening a link
It was not made public until Apple this information to correct the error by a security update which dropped rapidly due to the urgency of the case: all iPhone and iPads were vulnerable to this attack.
Apple corrected the most shocking security hole we know intended to attack or undermine the iOS system, where those affected would be both the iPhone and the iPad.
History of hacking aimed at “terrorists”
According to some governments, their techniques hacking or cyber weapons are used only against terrorism; however, this statement is questioned globally by users because of cases like this: Ahmed Mansoor is an activist who received an SMS with a link claiming to contain pictures of alleged torture carried out in prisons in UAE.
The activist suspected of SMS and contacted security firms, which detected zeroday or 0day vulnerabilities that are unknown to Apple. It was not made public until Apple this information to correct the error by a security update which dropped rapidly due to the urgency of the case: all iPhone and iPads were vulnerable to this attack.
The attack consisted that after visiting a link iPhone or iPad came to open as if he did ” jailbreak ” and with that kind of control spies could capture the ambient sound through microphone, capture photos using cameras, record the user ‘s location in real time, capture all messages and computer data without any problems.
This means that simply by visiting a website, from SMS, WhatsApp, Facebook, Twitter, via a popup or whatever the route could be infected without remedy.
The security company which is suspected as the creator of this cyber weapon is NSO Group, who has not been expressed about it.
We encourage all our readers to update both your iPhone and iPad so they are not vulnerable to such attacks.
