In Apple’s iMessage messaging service, a new error has been detected, which allows hackers to access the user’s iPhone, but according to the report, this is a “less interactive” hack because the user doesn’t need to do anything, such as downloading any files or clicking on any suspicious link will put your device at risk, and even worse, it doesn’t need to open the iMessage app.

Citing the Phonearena, at the Black Hat security conference in Las Vegas this week, Natalie Silvanovic, a Google Project Zero researcher, displayed a number of these alleged bugs within iMessage that can be used to remotely access your iPhone.

The researcher pointed out that potential attackers can send a targeted iMessage containing specific content that can be interpreted by Apple’s servers in a certain way and send a message that will lead to a hack automatically, and give the attacker access to the phone, and according to researchers, it is likely that the vulnerabilities they revealed in iMessage is a result of the complex and ever-growing nature of the application.
