iPhones To Be Hacked WHILE Twitter Turned Off 40404 Service
Millions of users’ iPhones feared to be hacked
ZecOps, a San Francisco-based cybersecurity company, has discovered the bug, which it says could make it easier for more than half a billion-iPhone users to targeted by hackers. The company says the flaw is also present in iPads. The security company discovered the flaw in 2019 while it was working on a cyber-attack complaint from one of its clients. Used as a tool during the attacks, the attacks targeted high-profile users from Japan, Germany, Saudi Arabia, and Israel.
The company says the hacker sent users a blank email on iPhones. As soon as you open it, the mobile system crashes, and the mobile restarts. During the restart, hackers gain access to the data. The company’s chief executive, Zack O’Rourke, says he witnessed the glitch in 2018. It looks like Apple is fixing the glitch. However, a spokesperson for Apple said that the company was aware of this and working on its accuracy, which will soon provide iPhone users with an update. It would part of several large-scale suspicious cyber activities that yet detected. Independent security research has also confirmed the Zac-Ops report.
