New documents unveils NSA’s illegal intrusion on iPhones using a spyware software, known as “DROPOUTJEEP”

At the Chaos Communications Congress in Germany, Jacob Appelbaum, a security researcher, revealed that the NSA has been hacking the iPhones since 2008 using a spyware software, called “DROPOUTJEEP.”

The report was published in Der Spiegel, a German magazine, at the same time, which states that the NSA has been accessing to Apple’s smartphone illegally, enabling the agency to intrude SMS messages and on-board data, activate the microphone and estimate position through cell tower location without being detected.

Appelbaum also mentions that Apple might be involved with the corruption, but states that he cannot prove the allegation.

According to Apple Insider, Der Spiegel states that NSA Tailored Access Operations (TAO) teams interrupt the distribution of the inbound devices and put the spyware software there. Thereafter, these devices are provided to the consumers.

The report has revived the accusation of NSA’s involvement in hacking important information stronger than ever.
