iMessage used to hack IPhone without clicking or opening anything.

A hacking tool enabled the United Arab Emirates’ government to spy on iPhone users with just a text message, according to a Wednesday report by Reuters.  

Called Karma, the tool let spies steal photos, messages, emails and location data from iPhones by uploading victims’ email accounts or phone numbers to an automated system, the report said.

The cyberattack worked through iMessage, and the spies simply needed to send a victim a text message; the target didn’t need to click on anything or open the message.
