Spyware That Could Control Anybody’s iPhone from Anywhere in the World

Great story from Vanity Fair (http://www.vanityfair.com) How a Grad Student Found Spyware That Could Control Anybody’s iPhone from Anywhere in the World | Vanity Fair

“This is a James Bond story,” says Mike Murray, Lookout’s vice president of security research and response, a curly-haired 40-year-old salesman type who formerly headed product-development security at G.E.“The guys who did this are James Bond villains, evil arms dealers attacking dissidents in the real world. It’s real. It’s true. This is finding cyber-weapons being used against someone in the real world. Before, people only suspected this might be out there.”
