NSA Has Nearly Complete Access to IPhone Communications

The U.S. National Security Agency has the ability to snoop on nearly every communication sent from an Apple iPhone, according to leaked documents shared by security researcher Jacob Appelbaum and German news magazine Der Spiegel.

An NSA program called DROPOUTJEEP allows the agency to intercept SMS messages, access contact lists, locate a phone using cell tower data, and even activate the device’s microphone and camera.

According to leaked documents, the NSA claims a 100 percent success rate when it comes to implanting iOS devices with spyware. The documents suggest that the NSA needs physical access to a device to install the spyware—something the agency has achieved by rerouting shipments of devices purchased online—but a remote version of the exploit is also in the works.

Appelbaum says that presents one of two possibilities:

“Either [the NSA] have a huge collection of exploits that work against Apple products, meaning they are hoarding information about critical systems that American companies produce, and sabotaging them, or Apple sabotaged it themselves,” Appelbaum said at the Chaos Communication Conference in Hamburg, Germany.

No need for the government to implant chips in our necks or tattoo barcodes on our wrists, they just wait for us to pay $500 for our own personal tracking device and pay another $100/month to connect it to the network so that they can read and record 100% of our communications and know our location at all times.

The thing with some products, such as apple, is that the terms and conditions for the most part state you agree to give apple access to all your communications. Like a few years ago when the play stations had a update (that no one reads the terms of conditions of!) that had a clause that by updating you agreed to never be part of a class action lawsuit against Sony!!!!!

What you said is spot on. Our freedoms are no longer being taken, we are giving them away for a little bit of soma

Let Apple try this shit here in Australia, we still have laws protecting consumers and our government has taken action against Apple before.

Re: NSA Has Nearly Complete Access to IPhone Communications

I'm pretty sure that isn't limited to iPhones. If the NSA physically gets their hands on an Android or Windows phone they could implant devices in them as well.
