Tech Crunch: Security researchers have discovered a powerful surveillance app first designed for Android devices can now target victims with iPhones.
The spy app, found by researchers at mobile security firm Lookout, said its developer abused their Apple-issued enterprise certificates to bypass the tech giant’s app store to infect unsuspecting victims.
The disguised carrier assistance app once installed can silently grab a victim’s contacts, audio recordings, photos, videos and other device information — including their real-time location data.
It can be remotely triggered to listen in on people’s conversations, the researchers found. Although there was no data to show who might have been targeted, the researchers noted that the malicious app was served from fake sites purporting to be cell carriers in Italy and Turkmenistan. more …
Opinion: Technological advancements from spy satellites, surveillance cameras and GPS systems will be useful tools for a coming authoritarian global government. When studying the prophetic Scriptures about this government and the final dictator, it is important that at least two books be used, Daniel and Revelation:
‘The fourth beast shall be
A fourth kingdom on earth,
Which shall be different from all other kingdoms,
And shall devour the whole earth,
Trample it and break it in pieces”
When Antichrist takes power he will require all the inhabitants of earth to receive a mark:
“He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads” Revelation 13:16.

“and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name” Revelation 13:17.
… the eternal penalties for taking it are much worse:
“Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb.” Revelation 14:9-10
