J&D Online Investigations was hired by a major international company where it was believed that their CEO’s iPhone 4S may have been infiltrated by iPhone spyware.

The client experienced all the usual signs of spyware installed such as

  • Phone becoming very hot
  • Phone would not respond and at times when it did was slow
  • Increase in phone bill costs
  • Extra data usage on phone
  • Random screen flashes
  • Some application icons changing colour

The iPhone had been jail breaked as the user required this to be able to use a foreign language application as English was not their native language. This jail break made the iPhone vulnerable.

A complete forensic image was conducted on the iPhone and as a result a well know mobile phone spyware suite was found.
