How does it happen?

  • The spyware exploits a software flaw in Apple’s iMessage software and installs itself deliberately.
  • It silently sneaks into the device without the victim having to click on the link.
  • The device is infected, and the attacker gains full access to the device.

Follow the below steps to protect yourself from similar attacks:

  1. Download apps only from the official app store.
  2. Always check the user reviews of the app.
  3. Always update your devices with the latest security patches.
  4. Refrain from clicking on links received in suspicious SMS messages
