Governments Exploited iTune’s Vulnerabilities

The iTune’s vulnerability became an important issue in the digital landscape, particularly because it concerns such a huge company as Apple and the right to privacy.

A report by the British online media revealed the truth behind secret services and iTune’s vulnerabilities, which could make even the most down to Earth person a bit paranoid. The report tells about some British company called Gamma International, which has been selling hacking software to various governments. This software allowed them to exploit iTunes vulnerability thanks to security vulnerability in the application’s update. Known as FinFisher, the software in question could be used to spy on users’ computers, since more than 250 million computers use Apple’s media player.

This software is known to be used by the UK intelligence agencies, making its way in the hands of Egypt’s secret police, according to the records discovered in 2011 in some abandoned offices. Security experts confirmed that Apple received a notice three years ago about the vulnerability in question. However, Apple only managed to release a patch fix this November, thus providing governments with a 3-years gateway of exploiting.

The report in question raised questions about when the company knew about this software offering, and its timing in eliminating the security hole in this software title. Experts might get interested in the company’s response to security threats, which is usually 91 days, but here this time wasn’t the case.

Francisco Amato is a security researcher from Argentina. He was the one who sent the notice to the company years ago. Today he commented on the late, at the very least, response, claiming that perhaps Apple just forgot about it, or the issue was on the very bottom of the company’s to-do list. Talking about FinFisher, the company claimed that it’s doing all it can to find and fix any vulnerabilities that might compromise systems. Representatives of Apple keep insisting that the security and privacy of their users are extremely important.

This month iTunes’ update revealed that a man-in-the-middle attacker might provide software which appears to originate from Apple, saying that the problem has been “mitigated”. Meanwhile, Gamma International didn’t comment on the issue.

No avatarMakes you think that Apple purposefully left this backdoor open for governments, that is untill it became publicly known and they then patched it and claimed ignorance... For all we know the patch opened up a new stealth route for the Gamma software, which will no doubt require a update or new version which Gamma International will charge an arm and a leg for.
Heck can someone do some digging and find the link between Gamma International and Apple itself, sounds too fishy to be some rouge hackers making a profit at Apples expense.

Keep up the good work SaM, been reading your posts for ages now, finally wanted to comment on one of them that bad to register , heck I would donate for vip but you want my name, address and even my phone number just to donate... PM me a way to donate via paypal or something that does not require me to put my details all over the place lol.
