iOS Is The Most Spyware-proof Mobile Operating System, According To New Study

New documents by the Gamma group, one of the world’s top surveillance companies, (via Washington Post) reveals that Apple’s iOS is the most spyware-proof mobile operating system in the world.

The documents were anonymously leaked online and illustrated that the Gamma’s group spy tools had a difficult time gaining unauthorised access to the iPhone compared to other mobile operating system

According to the report:

[su_quote]Android phones, some Blackberries and phones running older Microsoft operating systems all are readily penetrated by Gamma’s spyware, called FinSpy, which can turn your smart phone into a potent surveillance device. Users of the spyware are capable of listening to calls on targeted devices, stealing contacts, activating the microphone, tracking your location and more. But FinSpy has more trouble hacking into an iPhone, except when much of its built-in security has been stripped away through a process called “jailbreaking” — at least that’s what a leaked Gamma document dated April 2014 says.[/su_quote]
