Apple, Google, and China are all bound up in the news this morning, thanks to an Apple statement released this morning. A week ago, Google released details of a hack that could essentially own your iPhone, just by visiting a website.
Never mentioned by Google: which websites, where they were, or who they impacted.
But today, Apple provided a big clue that implicates China.
“The attack affected fewer than a dozen websites that focus on content related to the Uighur community.”
This is a very big hint that China was likely behind the attack, since it has been targeting Uighurs, an 11-million-strong population in western China with largely Muslim beliefs, for years.
