Apple He is not happy with a Google report in which they say sites could spy on iPhones users through iOS exploits.
The Google Project Zero report was apparently so harmful that a few days later Zerodium came out, the best reward program for finding errors. This increased the value of Android exploits to 2.5 million dollars. In comparison, the maximum reward for iOS zero days is $ 2 million.
People who chose iPhone over any Android for their safety are beginning to doubt, and That is why this report bothered those of Cupertino. Apple He said that this was a "sophisticated attack", that it was "narrowly focused" and that it was not "mass" as Google suggested in its report.
"The attack affected less than a dozen sites that focus on content related to the Uighur community," they said from Apple. “The Google post, six months after the iOS patches were released, creates the false impression of 'mass exploitation' to 'follow the activities of entire populations in real time' sowing fear among iPhone users whose devices They were engaged. This was never the case, ”they added.
According to the report, iOS versions 10 to 12 were affected by these vulnerabilities, suggesting that the attackers took advantage of them for 2 years. Apple He denies this by saying that "all the evidence indicates that these website attacks were operational only for a short period of approximately two months, not‘ two years ’as Google implies."
Thus, we have a new chapter in the war between these 2 giants.
Do you think Google exaggerated in its report?
