A critical warning was sent to Apple’s 1.65 billion iPad, iPhone, and MacBook users

In a stunning new post, Edward Snowden has delved into Apple’s CSAM (child sexual abuse material) detection system coming to Apple’s approx 1.65BN active iPhones, iPads and Macs next month. He states: “Apple’s new system, regardless of how anyone tries to justify it, will permanently redefine what belongs to you, and what belongs to them.” He also shows what you can do about it — for now.

New iPhone iMessage Flaw Enables ‘Zero Click’ HackBy Gordon KellyApple iPhone, iPad and Mac owners are currently facing multiple threats, but Apple’s new CSAM detection system has generated greater controversy than all the rest combined. And it just took another twist.

“The day after this system goes live, it will no longer matter whether or not Apple ever enables end-to-end encryption, because our iPhones will be reporting their contents before our keys are even used ,” says Snowden. Moreover, while he cites “compelling evidence” from researchers that Apple’s CSAM detection system is seriously flawed, he draws attention to a much bigger point:

CSAM detection works by matching a user’s images to illegal material. “Under the new design, your phone will now perform these searches on Apple’s behalf before your photos have even reached their iCloud servers, and… if enough “forbidden content” is discovered, law-enforcement will be notified,” Snowden explains. “Apple plans to erase the boundary dividing which devices work for you, and which devices work for them.”

“Apple gets to decide whether or not their phones will monitor their owners’ infractions for the government, but it’s the government that gets to decide what constitutes an infraction… and how to handle it.”
