A Canadian research group called Citizen Lab has accused Israeli surveillance firm NSO Group of using at least three new methods to hack iPhones last year. The procedures, called FINDMYPWN, PWNYOURHOME, and LATENTIMAGE, were allegedly used to target members of Mexican civil society, including human rights groups. NSO Group was apparently successful in circumventing Apple's security measures to install spyware for real-time surveillance.
