What could possibly go wrong?
Nov 7, 2020
It seems for some years now that an Israeli firm, NSO, has been selling their zero-click smartphone bugging software to vetted government bodies.

The flaw was plugged some years ago in iOS 9.something but apparently is still present in modern OSes such as iOS 14.6.

We should be worried for the targets of this software - but we should also be worried in general as our mobile-first world appears to be a house of cards.
