Apple reaffirms iMessage security in statement

In response to a recent claim that Apple could access users’ iMessages if they desired, the company has reaffirmed the security and privacy of the system. Security researchers at QuarksLab claim that Apple could change the infrastructure of the system to access iMessages — perhaps if required by a government order. Apple, however, says QuarksLab’s claim is merely a theory, and the company has no desire or motivation to change iMessage. “iMessage is not architected to allow Apple to read messages,” Apple spokeswoman told AllThingsD. “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.”
