This is trash. The us vs them is just gross and disingenuous. Project Zero is doing all of us a service, and Apple PR should be embarrassed for having written this.  https://www.apple.com/newsroom/2019/09/a-message-about-ios-security/ 

“The sophisticated attack was narrowly focused [effecting] fewer than a dozen websites that focus on content related to the Uighur community.” Just a great statement from the company looking the other way in China too often. “Don’t worry, it’s just their genocide, not ours!”

How many people were disappeared in Xinjiang as a direct result of these iPhone vulnerabilities? This whiny garbage-tier statement doesn’t do justice to the children growing up in ‘Kindergarten’ orphanages, never to again see their imprisoned parents. Just awful and disrespectful

What Apple failed to mention in that post is that they didn’t find those bugs & fix them on their own accord. They were tipped off by the FBI, and they very well know the resulting consequences of these exploits. Yet they tried to undermine this anyway.
