Israeli spyware firm targeted APPLE devices via iMessage, researchers say…

Secu­ri­ty researchers at Cit­i­zen Lab have dis­cov­ered an exploit that they believe has been used by gov­ern­ment clients of NSO Group, the Israeli spy­ware com­pa­ny, to silent­ly hack into iPhones and oth­er Apple devices since Feb­ru­ary 2021.

The dis­cov­ery, which was made as the researchers were exam­in­ing the mobile phone of a Sau­di activist, was shared with Apple, which on Mon­day released a patch to fix the vulnerability.

Researchers said the speed with which Apple was seek­ing to fix the vul­ner­a­bil­i­ty to its oper­at­ing sys­tem, which in effect has allowed the lat­est iPhones and oper­at­ing sys­tems to be vul­ner­a­ble to attack by NSO Group’s gov­ern­ment clients, under­scored the “absolute seri­ous­ness” of their findings.
