Apple Contacts App Vulnerable To Hacking, Putting iPhone Users At Risk
13 August, 2019, 01:14
One possible explanation for Apple's insistence on unlocking exploits that allow infiltration of iOS devices is the growing threat coming from highly experienced hackers groups, backed by state actors to develop means to facilitate spying campaigns. and mass monitoring of iOS device users. It has vehemently attacked Facebook and Google that are not as devoted as Apple to your privacy and security.
Two members of Google's security research team found six critical security vulnerabilities in the Apple iOS 12.4 update which was released earlier this month. The flaw puts over a billion iPhone and iPad users at risk. They exploited the SQLite vulnerability as well as a known bug for four years to manipulate the Apple Contacts app.
Since the Contacts app is a "trusted source" on iOS, once the researchers replaced a specific component of the Contacts app, the malicious code could be activated and carry out the hacker's commands with iOS being none the wiser.
For those unaware, SQLite is the most widespread database engine in the world and is used for development across platforms no matter the OS, browser or the device. However, the security firm notes they could have just as easily used the exploit to insert code that would steal all of an iPhone user's passwords.
Security researchers have revealed that the iOS Contacts app could make your iPhone or iPad vulnerable to malicious attack. The Check Point researchers said that keeping the replacement code after the restart on an iOS device was "hard to achieve". "Luckily for us, SQLite databases are not signed", the report quoted the Check Point researchers as saying. Why is the SQLite database not signed? Essentially, it's a technique that takes advantage of memory corruption issues in the format. The Cupertino company had its own reasons for not fixing the bug despite being aware of its existence. As AppleInsider explains: "the bug has been considered unimportant because it was believed it could only be triggered by an unknown application accessing the database, and in a closed system like iOS, there are no unknown apps".
In terms of just what is exactly they expect from you to earn that milly, the researchers (hackers) who are able to hack the core of iOS without any clicks required, will go home a million dollars richer.
