Google Project Zero researchers said last week that five security flaws led to this sustained effort to hack the users of iPhones in certain communities over a period of at least two years. But the researchers did not specify the communities. But CNN, TechCrunch, and other news organizations report that the attacks aimed at monitoring Uighurs.  Apple says that  the attack  affected many websites.
