Most Advanced iPhone Exploit Ever, Google’s $5 Billion Settlement, Apple’s Journal App

Play episode

In this episode, we discuss the most sophisticated iPhone exploit ever, Google’s agreement to settle a $5 billion lawsuit about tracking users in ‘incognito’ mode, and a new iOS app, Journal. The iPhone exploit, known as Operation Triangulation, has complex chains of events that lead to compromised iPhone security. Meanwhile, the lawsuit against Google claims that the company’s technology was still tracking users’ site visits even in ‘incognito’ mode. The newly added Journal app on iOS has raised questions and discussions on its security and privacy features as it encourages users to put their life updates on the app.
