One of the most notable examples of zero-click attacks was discovered by Citizen Lab in 2020, after a known iOS / iMessage zero-click security flaw was exploited to install NSO’s Pegasus spyware onto the phones of journalists, politicians, and activists between 2017 and 2020.Zero-click attacks often leave little trace and victims may be completely unaware that their device has been compromised. In some cases, security measures like end-to-end encrypted messaging intended to protect users can actually make zero-click attacks even harder to detect as the data being sent can only be viewed by the sender and receiver. Samsung claims its new Message Guard feature can help prevent these attacks before they occur, automatically quarantining and neutralizing potential threats concealed within PNG, JPG/JPEG, GIF, ICO, WEBP, BMP, and WBMP format image files before they can cause any harm.
