China has used the iPhone to hit the people of the Uyghurs

Last week we reported the discovery of Google of an old vulnerability in the iPhone, now resolved by Apple, that allowed malicious Web sites to steal data from thousands of users in a period of two years.

Google has described these attacks in his original post on the blog as “indiscriminate,“ however, a report by TechCrunch suggests that the websites were part of an attack claimed by the state that struck specifically on the Uyghur muslims.

The Web sites were part of a campaign aimed at the religious group to infect the iPhone with malicious code simply by visiting a compromised Web page. In the get unlimited access to the software of the iPhone, an attacker could read the messages, passwords and track the victim, almost in real time.

According to sources of TechCrunch, behind the malicious Web sites there was the chinese government, which infettavano also the uyghurs who accessed unintentionally in these domains because they were indexed in the Google search. It is said that the FBI has warned Google to request the removal of sites from its index to prevent infections.

Beijing has long sought to repress the community, uighur ethnic minority in the state of Xinjiang, with brutal repression in the ’80s and ’90s that have led to a significant number of uyghurs who fled China to seek asylum.

Last year, at least a million uyghurs have been arrested in the internment camps, according to the human rights committee of the United Nations. Beijing says that the centers in China are intended for the “professional training“, but a hearing of the Congress of the United States on the fields has already defined them, centers of “rehabilitation policy“.
