The program, called NoReboot, simulates shutting down or restarting a smartphone. In this mode, incoming calls and notifications, vibration, screen and camera indicator do not work. The display shows an animation of turning on the device to confuse the user.
In a “ pseudo-off '' state Attackers gain remote access to the iPhone's microphone and camera, as well as personal information stored in the gadget's memory.
The vulnerability can only be prevented from working by a deep reboot, for which you need to successively press the volume and power buttons. However, at the moment there are no clear instructions on how to remove the virus.
ZecOps stressed that the vulnerability, thanks to which the malware operates, cannot yet be fixed. The problem affects all iPhones with any version of iOS.
