Spyware on jailbroken iphone

 

A tool is only as good as the people who use it. Remote logging software could be used to secure your possessions, and it could also be used against you to steal your personal information, invade your privacy, and embarrass you. Copy10 is the newest piece of self-fashioned spyware to hit Cydia . It claims that it can log GPS coordinates, SMS calls, Call history, contacts, visited URLs, and photos as well as having the ability to preform ‘remote uninstall’ and ambient voice recordings.

What’s troubling is that Copy10 is designed to be “100% undetectable,” leaving no evidence on the Springboard, Settings panel, or even any signs of installed packages in Cydia. That said, there are ways to find out if someone is spying on you through your iPhone or iPad. Copy10 is a paid app, which means that if a spouse is snooping on you, there should be a bill for the service. More laughibly, Copy10 has a promotion currently running where users can get a 5 day trial of the premium service by liking their page on Facebook. If your spouse is liking pages for spyware on Facebook, you might want to leave for reasons of bad judgement alone.

The important takeaway message is not to leave your iPhones, iPads or iPod Touches unattended. Someone could install Copy10 for an even more nefarious purpose. Also remember that any spyware attack can be thwarted by restoring the firmware on your device. If you have non-slimy motives for using Copy10, you can find the package in the  ModMyi  repository on Cydia.

In case you fear that someone might already have installed this iPhone Spyware and want to get rid of this, you might first want to cross check your accusations by relating to the points given below.

5. You will notice strange beeps, vibrations or flash of lights from your iPhone while it is not in use or when you are on a call.

6. Considering that almost all the Spyware apps require a physical contact with the device  to install and activate it, there is a possibility that you might find the person who actually has done it. You can try and recall if recently anyone borrowed your iPhone  in order to make a “private call” or to download a ringtone or something similar such as an app or game.

It’s the big security news of the day. Security researchers have uncovered new iOS malware, called Xsser mRAT, which specifically targets iOS devices, and was originally targeted at Android devices.

Lacoon Mobile Security discovered the malware while investigating similar malware for Google’s Android operating system that also targets Hong Kong protesters, and they have dubbed Xsser mRAT the "first and most advanced, fully operational Chinese iOS trojan found to date."

For the majority of iOS users, your iPhone or iPad is simply not at risk of infection, because the Xsser mRAT can only be installed on jailbroken iOS devices.
