Israel-based NSO Group claims it can harvest iCloud data in targeted attacks. It’s said to be a version of the Pegasus spyware.

Attackers using the malware are said to be able to access a wealth of private information, including the full history of a target’s location data and archived messages or photos, according to people who shared documents with the Financial Times and described a recent product demonstration.

When questioned by the newspaper, NSO denied promoting hacking or mass-surveillance tools for cloud services, but didn’t specifically deny that it had developed the capability described in the documents.

    Said it before – the clones and drones out there that follow like lemmings – I have no mercy at all for them. Has any cloud not been hacked? iCloud has been hacked before. I just think the cloud from day one was a joke. What is so hard about buying and using your own cheaper solution that is hack proof (simply encrypt) unlike ANY thing web or server based? It’s all on Apple for making it easier to dump your private stuff on a cloud because they took your card readers and standard I/O off of the toys.
