The Cupertino company has refuted a security company’s report of watching users’ iMessages

Since the discovery of the NSA spying scandal, Apple has denied several times about watching iMessages secretly. In spite of this, a security company has come up with a revelation of a new report, stating that the tech giant has the ability to observe the iMessages without being detected.

Apple Balla reports that QuarksLab, a security firm, published a white paper on Thursday, describing such a method which can be applied by Apple to getting access to the messages of the iMessage app. They discovered Apple’s capability of intruding the messages between sender and recipient. However, in order to do this, Apple must make the complete modification of the encryption and function of the iMessage platform.

In June, Apple stated that the iMessage App has been developed with a strong security system.

Trudy Muller, a spokeswoman from Apple, denies the allegation, stating that the tech giant is not interested in being involved in spying.

“The research discussed theoretical vulnerabilities that would require Apple to re-engineer the iMessage system to exploit it, and Apple has no plans or intentions to do so”, said Muller.
