Hi guys,

Here’s another example of how iPhones are not safe from hacking. There are details of a zero-click attack that is targeting iPhones around the world. When I say zero click attack, I mean no user involvement is required. You have to be targeted, and it’s game over.

Recently, researchers at Citizen Lab uncovered a new spyware campaign that has been targeting iPhones. The campaign uses a sophisticated method of attack that involves sending invisible calendar invites containing malicious code to the victim’s device. You can read the full report HERE, which I strongly recommend you do, but in a nutshell, he has everything you need to know:

Once the victim opens the calendar invite, the malware is automatically downloaded and installed on their device, giving the attacker complete access to the victim’s personal data.

This particular spyware is known as Quadream, and it is believed to be developed by a company called Circles. Circles is an Israeli technology firm that provides government spyware to various countries around the world.

Quadream is a highly advanced spyware that is capable of carrying out a wide range of surveillance activities. Some of the functionality of the spyware includes:

  • Stealing text messages, emails, and other forms of communication
  • Recording phone calls and voicemail messages
  • Accessing the victim’s camera and microphone to record audio and video
  • Tracking the victim’s location in real-time
  • Stealing passwords and other sensitive information

To protect yourself from this type of threat, here are some tips:

  • Keep Incognito updated on your device.
  • Be cautious when opening calendar invites from unknown sources, even if they appear legitimate.
  • Keep your iPhone updated with the latest security patches and updates.
  • Use two-factor authentication for all of your online accounts to prevent unauthorized access.
  • Avoid using public Wi-Fi networks to access sensitive information.
  • Use reputable antivirus software on your device to detect and remove any potential threats.

Remember, staying vigilant and proactively protecting your personal data is crucial in today’s digital age. If you have any questions, comments or concerns, please let our privacy care team know; they will help you with any issues.
