Gizmodo reported that Google’s Project Zero found multiple vulnerabilities in Apple’s iOS iMessage app, whereby “an attacker could exploit them without requiring the owner of the targeted device to do anything. Of the vulnerabilities that have been resolved, one was so serious that it could only be solved by wiping a device with the loss of all data, while another could be used to siphon data off a device.”
It was reported that not all of these holes have yet been patched, as of the date of the article.
Why it matters
If you happen to use iMessage and happen to have used it to receive or send video account access information, beware! Video account access credentials can be unwittingly stolen and exploited by piracy.
