This app called iMazing works on both Mac and Windows. You can use it in finding out if the connected iPhone has spyware or not.
Pegasus, spyware created by Israel’s NSO group, has caused panic around the world. However, you can collect data through this spyware from targeted smartphones without the user’s knowledge and you can catch it by hand now. The star is now an app that promises to find this spyware on iPhones. This app called iMazing works on both Mac and Windows. You can use it in finding out if the connected iPhone has spyware or not.
It’s essentially an iPhone management software. It has the ability to detect signs of a Pegasus attack. You can find the spyware detection feature for iPhones in iMazing 2.14 on Mac or Windows. To run a diagnostic, users need to connect their iPhones to their Mac or Windows system and run the latest application. You can select the spyware detection option. You do not require any setting or advance backup as per the company.
Pegasus spyware introduces not this for the first time. Amnesty International, a human rights group that exposes Pegasus attacks, has previously released a tool to allow users to detect the Pegasus virus on a device. The open-source command-line tool, called MVT, runs on a set of codes available on GitHub. However, there is a lot more complication with its implementation for a typical smartphone user.
The new feature of iMazing uses the same finding method used in MVT. The idea behind this feature was to enable MVT detection techniques in a more user-friendly way. With the app, one can now need clicking on one option and the rest would take care of by the software. Users will get this feature for free without the need to purchase a license. This makes it clear that not everyone needs it, as most iPhone users are less likely to be affected by Pegasus spyware. This is because state-of-the-art spyware is mainly used by high profile individuals.
