Project Zero: iMessage error can block your device!

Recently, his security researcher Google Project Zero, Natalie Silvanovich, has announced a question about iMessage. In the announcement, he has stated that if this error is not resolved it could potentially create serious problems requiring rehabilitation in its mobile Apple.

Project Zero

Silvanovich with Project Zero, in a post he made on the company's blog, said it was a bug in managing the messages and linked to the Springboard - the application that handles its home screen iOS. Features said that by receiving such a message, the Springboard will be blocked repeatedly and will stop responding. He noted that even a hard reset would not affect the problem and so did it phone would be practically useless. According to the researcher, there are ways to unlock a jammed device, but the basic requirement is to reset the factory settings. The problem, which was detected last April, was resolved in May with iOS 12.3.

Project Zero

Last year, Natalie Silvanovich discovered another one error, this time on application of WhatsApp. This vulnerability provided hackers with the ability to use the app on Android or iOS devices whenever users answered an incoming video call.

This is not the first time that Project Zero has discovered such defects. In particular, in March he revealed one zero-day vulnerability in Apple's software, MacOS. In fact, vulnerability had been detected several months before, in November, but until March it had not been resolved.
