Google and researchers from Canada-based Citizen Lab, a research group at the University of Toronto’s Munk School, said Apple has corrected a series iOS zero-day flaws used to infect Egyptian presidential candidate Ahmed Eltantawy's iPhone with Predator spyware developed by commercial exploit vendor Cytrox.
The attackers leveraged three separate iOS bugs and relied on a packet inspection device from Egypt-based manufacturer Sandvine.
Citizen Lab said the PacketLogic device sitting on a cellular network in Egypt watched for links from the victim's phone to any HTTP site and, when identified, rerouted it to a site that injected the spyware.
