Designer smartphone hacks will trickle down in 2022

What happens State-sponsored smartphone hacking When they were discovered? Of course, they are reverse engineered and enter the underworld of cybercrime.

There is no “safe” back door

The inconvenient truth is that there is no such thing as a secure backdoor to smartphone security. Authoritarian governments may force smartphone platform developers to create them, but their exploits have been identified and crimes that are as smart and (sometimes) the same people as government developers. Everyone is less secure because they will eventually find and abuse them.

Smartphone security is different from Harry Potter’s favorite train platform. There is no invisible platform 9.75 that can only be accessed by government-approved hackers. If the door exists, you will find it. Will be copied. Abused.

In 2022, we will see state-sponsored attacks leak into the hacking underground world. Experts warn that this can lead to a bonfire of security incidents on all platforms.

WatchGuard says be careful

WatchGuard’■ 2022 cybersecurity forecasts and Israeli NSO Group Leaking into broader abuse is at the top of the list.

Most platform vendors are wary of such attacks. Judging from that, Apple definitely does. Recent commitment “We will work tirelessly to protect our users from state-sponsored abusive actors like NSO Group.”
