Sources say China used iPhone hack to target Uyghur Muslims

A recently uncovered cyber attack targeting iPhones was apparently from China and focused on snaring Uyghur Muslims. Adding to the TechCrunch report, Forbes claimed Android and Windows Phone devices were also targeted. Those additions make more sense if one is to argue that this is part of China's Uyghur tactic, but still there's plenty of skepticism since it is clear at this point that most countries conduct cyber campaigns... and simply blaming China could function as a smokescreen. There's doubtless more reporting to come here.
