Have An iPhone, Peek – A – Boo, The Government Can See You
Well well, the NSA (National Security Agency) is playing peek-a-boo with you in many ways but especially if you have an iPhone. Starting to not feel like America anymore, the details are stunning.The NSA spy program is getting more and more intense. Based on leaked documents from the department, the NSA is not installing spyware and malicious hardware on labtops. But that’s only the beginning.
Back in September it was reported that the NSA has access to smartphones, but their focus was the iPhone. Seems as thought the NSA has the ability to access just about ALL your iPhone data. The program they are using is DROPOUTJEEP.
The explanation of DROPOUTJEEP directly from a NSA 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.”
When asked about the installation of the malware on iPhones, the NSA claims a 100% success rate.
American citizens have the right to be protected, but we also have a right to privacy. At what point does invasion of privacy outweigh security?
