More details have emerged about the spyware implant that’s delivered to iOS devices as part of a campaign called Operation Triangulation.
Kaspersky, which discovered the operation after becoming one of the targets at the start of the year, said the malware has a lifespan of 30 days, after which it gets automatically uninstalled unless the time period is extended by the attackers.
The Russian cybersecurity company has codenamed the backdoor TriangleDB.
“The implant is deployed after the attackers obtain root privileges on the target iOS device by exploiting a kernel vulnerability,” Kaspersky researchers said in a new report published today.
