CNET.com reported yesterday that, based on classified documents retrieved by German news outlet, Spiegel, the NSA has “created platform-specific working groups to tap the contact lists, SMS traffic, and user location information on the Apple iOS, Google Android and BlackBerry mobile operating systems.”
However, today CNET reveals that Apple’s iPhone is actually the NSA’s favorite for stalking Americans, warrant-free.
Why? Well, the NSA has programs called “scripts”, which can spy on over 30 features of the phone’s operating system. This includes everything from voicemail, to photos, to social media applications- like Facebook.
Agents have tapped into photos taken by the iPhone, according to the documents obtained by Spiegel. As one example, a photo taken in January 2012 shows a former senior government official of a foreign country relaxing on his couch in front of his TV. He’s taking pictures of himself…with his iPhone. The man’s name and other details were apparently revealed in the documents, but Spiegel chose not to print them.
That’s right, folks. The NSA can see your “selfies”.
