Spyware Takes Over iPhones, Androids | digitalcuration | Scoop.it

Call it Invasion of the iPhone Snatchers: a new FinFisher-based spyware is built to infect iPhones and iPads (and Android, BlackBerry and Windows Phone gadgets too) in order to take over the device completely — all unbeknownst to the user.
