The U.S. National Security Agency has the ability to snoop on nearly every communication sent from an Apple iPhone, according to leaked documents. The NSA has apparent ability to access just about all your iPhone data including its mic, camera, SMS, and more ,through a program called DROPOUTJEEP. Disclosed by security researcher Jacob Applebaum.
According to Leaked Document:
DROPOUT JEEP is a software implant for the Apple iPhone that utilizes modular mission applications to provide specific SIGINT functionality. This functionality includes the ability to remotely push/pull files from the device. SMS retrieval, contact list retrieval, voicemail, geolocation, hot mic, camera capture, cell tower location, etc. Command, control and data exfiltration can occur over SMS messaging or a GPRS data connection. All communications with the implant will be covert and encrypted.
The NSA apparently claims a 100% success rate in installing the malware on iPhones. The initial release of DROPOUTJEEP will focus on installing the implant via close access methods. A remote installation capability will be pursued for a future release, but NSA is reportedly able to reroute shipments of devices ordered online to get the spyware installed on device.
