Lockdown Mode is an extreme optional protection for a very small number of users who face serious targeted threats to their digital security.

Apple makes the most secure mobile devices on the market. Lockdown Mode is a groundbreaking feature that reflects our unwavering commitment to protecting users from even the rarest and most sophisticated attacks. While the vast majority of users will never be targeted by cyberattacks, we will work tirelessly to protect the small number of users who are threatened by them.

In this case, by a very small number of people, Apple means politicians, journalists, public figures, and so on. That is, those people whose activities can attract the attention of intruders to them.

Lockdown Mode enhances device security and severely restricts certain features, drastically reducing the attack surface that can be exploited by highly targeted spyware.

When launched, Lockdown Mode includes the following protections:

  • Messages: Most types of message attachments other than images are blocked. Some features, such as link previews, are disabled.
  • Web Browsing: Some complex web technologies, such as JavaScript JIT compilation, are disabled unless the user removes the trusted site from blocking mode.
  • Apple Services: Incoming invitations and connection requests, including FaceTime calls, are blocked unless the user has previously sent a call or request to the initiator.
  • Wired connections to a computer or accessory are blocked when iPhone is locked.
  • Configuration profiles cannot be installed and the device cannot enroll in mobile device management (MDM) while lockdown mode is enabled.

In the future, the regime will receive additional protection mechanisms.

In addition, Apple announced that it has created a new category under the Apple Security Bounty program to reward researchers who find workarounds to the lockdown mode and help improve its protection. Rewards are doubled for qualifying finds in lockdown mode, up to a maximum of $2M, the highest maximum payout in the industry.

Lockdown Mode is coming to iOS 16, iPadOS 16, and macOS Ventura.

Elon Musk won the lawsuit against Twitter Now the billionaire

The court ordered the social network Twitter to transfer to Elon Musk files from the former general manager of spam accounts Kavon Bakpour. It was the bot accounts that became the main cause of the proceedings in court after Musk refused to buy the company because of false data about the number of fake accounts.

Elon Musk won the lawsuit against Twitter.  Now the billionaire will be given data on spam accounts

A Delaware court has ordered Twitter to collect, examine, and release the Bakepur documents for Musk to review. Thus, the billionaire won in court.

Bakpour himself left the company in April, when the management of Twitter decided to sell the company to Musk. According to the documents, he was one of the “most closely involved” executives who were involved in determining the number of spam accounts.

Earlier, Twitter filed a lawsuit against Musk, because he unilaterally refused to acquire a social network. The management of the network felt that the court could force Mack to change his mind.

At the same time, we note that the founder of Tesla and SpaceX previously said that he was ready to return to the deal on the same terms, but the company needs to select 100 accounts and explain why they can be considered genuine, and not sources of spam.
