Researchers from the mobile security firm Lookout will present findings on the iOS version of the spyware known as Exodus. The nonprofit Security Without Borders published details of the Android version in conjunction with Motherboard at the end of March. The fact that Exodus has an iOS version, though, shows the impressive reach of the malware and the resources behind it.
And the stakes are high. The iOS version of Exodus, built to look like a mobile carrier support app, used all of the mechanisms iOS offers legitimate apps to grab as much of a target’s data as possible.
