The Hackers Use Radio Wave To Access iPhone, Beware!

The two researchers at French security organization ANSSI have found that the electromagnetic wafeforms, such as a radio wave can be used to hack iOS devices, Android phones, and Windows phones. How does it work? For instance, on the iPhone, the hacker will exploit the unprotected iPhone headphone to send the radio wave to disrupt Siri. When you access Siri, it’s a time for hackers to insert any messages they want, and the worst – open the wallet. Chaouki Kasmi and José Lopes Esteves said:

We Exploit he principle of front-door coupling on smartphones headphone cables with specific electromagnetic waveforms. We present a smart use of intentional electromagnetic interference, resulting in finer impacts on an information system than a classical denial of service effect. As an outcome, we introduce a new silent remote voice command injection technique on modern smartphones.

The fact that hackers use radio wave to access iPhone is an interesting invention, and yet frightening. How to prevent this new way of hacking? The researchers recommend to use the shielded earbuds to prevent the radio wave interference. The other way is to turn off Siri feature. Here’s the step to turn off Siri on your iPhone: go to Settings >> General >> Siri, swipe it the green button to the left. The pop up message will appear, choose Turn Off Siri.
