NSA Spyware Gives Backdoor Access to iPhones 100% Success Rate

DROPOUT JEEP is a software implant for the Apple iPhone that utilizes modular mission applications to provide specific SIGINT functionality. This functionality includes the ability to remotely push/pull files from the device. SMS retrieval, contact list retrieval, voicemail, geolocation, hot mic, camera capture, cell tower location, etc. Command, control and data exfiltration can occur over SMS messaging or a GPRS data connection. All communications with the implant will be covert and encrypted.

 

What is perhaps more alarming than the hack itself is the NSA’s claim that it will always succeed with installing the spyware on any iPhone. Physical access is needed now to install the spyware, but a version that can be remotely installed is in the works.
