nsa spying on iphone

Jacob Applebaum  on Tuesday at the 30th Chaos Communication Congress reports that National Security Agency is spying on iPhone. He was although doubtful, but claims that the NSA had access to all iPhone and probably the other iOS devices too.

A German publication Der Spiegel also showed an extensive report on the NSA’s ANT department’s little project called the DROPOUTJEEP or decoded to iPhone hack which gives the agency access to any iPhone and extract almost everything.

The original DROPOUTJEEP program would require to have physical access to the iPhones for the installation. After that, nothing’s private on that iPhone. The latest versions are however believed to have gotten rid of the one-time physical access requirement, they remotely do everything.

SMS, contact list retrieval, voicemail, hot microphone, camera capture, cell tower location. You think Apple helped them with that? I don’t know. I hope Apple will clarify that. Here’s the problem. I don’t really believe that Apple didn’t help them. I can’t really prove it. They literally claim that any time they target an iOS device that it will succeed for implantation. Either they have a huge collection of exploits that will work against Apple products, meaning that they are hoarding information about critical systems that American companies produce and sabotaging them, or Apple sabotaged it themselves. Not sure which one it is. I’d like to believe that since Apple didn’t join the PRISM program until after Steve Jobs died, that maybe it’s just that they write shitty software. We know that’s true – reports Jacob Applebaum

The Apple iMessage encryption was also declared faulty recently. Apple claims it does not collect any information about the user activities and is not really involved in it neither was aware of it.

NSA’s however powerful enough to be spying on the iPhone as well as other smartphones. They are believed to get just about everything from such devices.

Ever since the their surveillance programs were brought into the spotlight, users of major platforms started questioning their companies about their involving in the matter. Their plain refusal put more curiosity in the minds. The truth still lies as a question.
