The Russian Foreign Ministry has accused the United States of using a “sophisticated cyberweapon” to hack into iPhones, including devices belonging to Russian nationals and others linked to diplomatic missions and embassies in the country.

The Federal Security Service (FSB) said that a U.S. intelligence agency was responsible for the attacks, although it gave no further details regarding the agency or the tactics employed. The iPhone’s manufacturer, Apple, was said to have worked with the American government on the attacks by the FSB.

According to sources, a spokesperson for Apple said: “We have never worked with any government to insert a backdoor into any Apple product and never will.”

Tensions Rise Amidst Cyber Warfare Allegations Between U.S. and Russia

The allegations come at a time of heightened tensions between the U.S. and Russia following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. The two countries have been at odds over a number of issues, including cyber warfare.

In 2017, the U.S. government accused Russia of hacking the Democratic National Committee’s computer systems during the 2016 presidential election.

The FSB’s allegations of U.S. hacking of iPhones have not been independently verified. However, if true, they would represent a serious escalation in cyberwarfare between the U.S. and Russia.

The allegations of US hacking of Russian iPhones are just one example of the increasing use of cyberwarfare by countries around the world. As technology becomes more sophisticated, cyberwarfare will likely become an even more important tool in international relations. The future of cyberwarfare is uncertain, but it is clearly a growing threat.
