Speaking of iPhones, it may be disappointing to know it’s hackable even though it pays more money to buy the latest iPhone. Apple said in an official statement, “The attacks described in the coverage are well funded, sophisticated and targeted at specific individuals. While we take them seriously and work to make them unusable quickly, they pose no threat to the vast majority of people iPhone User.”
When governments use brute force “IT” to spy on citizens, consumer tech companies can do very little to protect privacy. As for NSO group and Apple has always been a game of cat and mouse. The moment Apple patches a vulnerability, the NSO Group finds another vulnerability to continue sniffing with Pegasus.
Ivan Krstić, head of Apple security technology and architecture A media statement said: “Apple clearly condemns cyberattacks against journalists, human rights activists and others who want to make the world a better place. Apple has been an industry leader in security innovations for over a decade, and security researchers agree that the iPhone is the safest, most secure mobile device out there. Attacks like the one described are very sophisticated, cost millions of dollars to develop, often have a short shelf life, and are used to target specific individuals. While that means they aren’t a threat to the overwhelming majority of our users, we continue to work tirelessly to keep all of our customers safe and we’re constantly adding new safeguards to their devices and data. ”
Cyber security is a process
Apple claims to have created the world’s most secure consumer platform with iOS. “Like others in the industry, we see security as a process. As part of this process, we quickly fix critical security vulnerabilities and provide security updates that are immediately available to our users, even on devices that are years old, ”said Apple.
Apple recently introduced new security features in its chipsets such as Pointer authentication codes and Explosion door Skills in its software. “Our continued investment in security means the security team has grown significantly, with growth roughly quadrupling over the past 5 years. The team is made up of many top experts in their fields, from threat intelligence specialists and offensive security researchers to platform defense engineers and everything in between, ”it added.
