Latest NSA Leaks Show Exploits on iOS and Tracking GSM Phones Back in 2007

Protect and infect 

The NSA leaks continue with the latest coming from a huge stash at Der Spiegel. They have unveiled a whole catalog of exploits the NSA sells to other US government departments from back in 2007. What is fascinating is that the catalog holds exploits that would have been cutting edge at the time and beyond what some expected the government to be able to do. At the Chaos Communications Congress in Hamburg this weekend Jacob Appelbaum, who has been working on the Der Spiegel articles, revealed a bit more about the catalog. (via TheVerge)

He showed off an exploit that allowed control over iOS devices and the ability to access files on the devices remotely. They also mentioned a way of tracking GSM cellphones by creating a dummy man in the middle tower. This is cutting edge technology especially when you consider the fact that it was available over 6 years ago.

  1. If its not a BlackBerry, its not secure period.
    But lately it seems as though people don’t care about mobile security or they are just being silly with the amount of trust they put into apps. 60% iOS and 90% Android apps regardless if free or paid are malware infested.

    BlackBerry World apps are 0% infested. 😉
