I’m learning about the importance of patching and applying updates. I read that Microsoft and Apple may intentionally send malicious updates to specific users. A given example is that the iOS updates are device specific so Apple could potentially send a malicious update to a specific user.
Is this true?
I can’t find any instances online of this happening. This seems to me an ability MS and Apple does have. Though I can’t think of any reason or motivation for MS and Apple to do this. Sure it may be because of a court order, but that’s unlikely because there are more efficient methods a government would use to go after a specific person right?
