meanwhile have uncovered a hacking operation that targeted apple i phones for at least 2 years the hackers used the websites to infect phones with malicious software that gave them access to photos messages using locations and other data apple was made aware of the problem back in february and release a security update to fix it let's speak some more about this to larry magid who's the c.e.o. of connect safety dot org an internet safety privacy and security organization is via skype from palo alto in california thank you very much larry for being with us on al-jazeera so thousands of i phone uses i said to have been exposed over a period of 2 years how bad was this and why we finding out about it only now will that last question is one that i'm wondering about too why didn't apple disclose the details at the time they did disclose that there was a security patch but we didn't know how bad it was in terms of how bad it was we
8:09 am
don't know exactly how many people were affected but we do know that this particular malware was capable of taking over the phone which means it could read your e-mail you can read your text message of your instagram private messages it could know your location it could do practically anything that you could do by having the phone in your hand in an unlocked way and it was able to transmit this data on encrypted so it was a very serious flaw apple gets credit for having fixed it very quickly but criticism for dot having disclose details in here we're finding out now not from apple but from google interesting that we're finding out from google and not apple who was behind this then and who was the target. well we don't know we know that anybody who visited these web sites could have been a target and there's some speculation it could have been aimed at people from certain regions or ethnic groups but it's unclear who the targets were and who was behind that if time there is some speculation it could have been a nation state but that's pure speculation we don't know that but we do know that
8:10 am
it could have affected fairly severe and the other thing i want to point out that this was google's project 0 this was not google trying to do a gotcha to apple because they compete right android versus i phone this was a group of google researchers who are dedicated to make the web safer and go after any research flaw even if it's against google and you know there's always been this notion mary that is 60 meet difficult and even costly to hack an i phone do you think they could be other potential hacks and what can uses do to protect themselves well it's a very good point the i phone is by no means invulnerable and we see that from this hack there isn't a lot you could do to guarantee that you're protected but the best thing you can do is to keep your operating system in your browser and other software and apps up to date to get those there vectors for security flaws in apple in this case did fix it in february the other thing you can do is to try to avoid going to unknown web sites but frankly that's very difficult because a lot of us are always looking around the web and don't always know where we're

8:22 am
the red cross we are trying to emphasize on risk communication and community engagement so croce's to sit with the people in the affected communities to discuss with them share with their side of this i took it for treatment encourage them to go for treatment but to also do listen to their concerns listen to the room of the community level that limiting their ability with the treatment center so we are indeed reading that is one of the biggest challenge of trust and also fear you can imagine people living their comfort in their homes living there it used to going to a sufficient center for treatment so they are also terrified in the trade and it's understandable that they're afraid the trial of 5 men charged with planning the september 11th attacks has been set for early 2021 a military judge set the date to get evidentiary deadlines in
8:23 am
a case song stalled by pretrial litigations the 5 men include khalid shaikh mohammad a senior al qaeda figure and the supposed that mastermind behind the attack the u.s. has charged him with war crimes that include terrorism hijacking and nearly 3000 counts of murder that could get the death penalty if convicted the men have been held at the kuantan will be a detention center since 2006 let's speak to karen greenberg about this she is the director of the center on national security at the at the fordham university school of law joins us via skype from westchester in new york thank you so much for being with us karen so. is a scheduled trial date of january 11th 2021 realistic in your opinion is kuantan i'm all ready for a trial of this magnitude. so 1st let me just tell you something about the significance of the date 10 opened on january 11th 2002 so interesting when the military commissions chose the date the anniversary which will you know
8:24 am
be 19 years later to start the trial so in and of itself it tells you how long these men have been in custody and awaiting trial they were originally a raid in 2012 so do i think does anybody think that this trial actually take place it's hard to imagine there have been so many pretrial motions there is so much that remains unresolved but if there is a will to have this trial take place it will take place is there a whale though especially from the government side yes you know i think the government 6 by you know depends on what you mean by the government i think of hossa cuter would in fact very much like to try this case it doesn't it if embarrassing is a record for it but to have a kid these are these are career lawyers these are people who have a sense of pride in the work that they do and the fact that largely because of the
8:25 am
facts and circumstances of the case and the way in which other aspects of the government have handled the evidence in this case. makes it look like they are incapable as a system and as individuals of making this trial happen and so i think there is a will to have it happen partly to save face and partly to bring justice to the individuals who are alleged to have carried out 911 so what needs to happen then karren between now and january 11th 2021 for the to get on the way and with all parties involved be motivated to think to meet this deadline. look i think the defense attorneys would like very much to be able to make the case that should be there should be special circumstances understood before this trial and they've been making this case all along that these individuals were held in cia custody and
8:26 am
tortured and so what lies at the heart of this case is is it possible to bring this case with clean evidence evidence that was not derived from torture we all know from reading the $911.00 commission report and many histories now of $911.00 that there are many facts that are out there in public but what how the case can be. delayed as we've seen or impeded or or justice but to these men by bringing the fact of their torture up is very important one of the issue is the death penalty this is a death penalty case and so there may be some further negotiation there's been a lot already about the death penalty 2 of these men are very ill one of at least one of them 2 of them are alleged to different times to be suffering from some kind of brain damage or psychological illness so that is also going to impede the trial
8:27 am
but to your question what is going to happen the judge has set up a timetable and he's a he's made it clear that he wants to be very firm about this about when deadlines have to be met what the deadlines are how much time each side has to respond to firings by the other side how soon they have to know what witnesses what evidence what the trial is actually going to look like and this is a start if you actually want to make a trial happen i will see what happens in the next few months thank you very much for speaking to us can greenberg from the center for national security at fordham university school of law joining us there from west to say thank you very much indeed. israel has revealed what it says is declassified intelligence outlining any radian program to assemble precision guided missiles inside lebanon israeli troops on high alert near the lebanese border after hezbollah warned of an imminent strike how a faucet reports from them on high alert but in protective posture israeli
8:28 am
forces near lebanon have been pulled back from the border positions in recent days as they wait for a promised strike by hezbollah in response to recent israeli attacks and now israel is upping the pressure on both lebanon and hezbollah it's released what it says the details of an iranian program to convert hezbollah missiles into precision guided weapons using components brought in by land sea and it's warning lebanon's government to take action will be held responsible for yourself and we are determined to toward this dangerous program the aim of the publication today is to clarify that we will not stand aside and allow our enemies to arm themselves with fatal weaponry i told them this week be careful and i repeat today naira pick. hezbollah's leader hassan nasrallah has denied precision missiles are being manufactured inside lebanon he says israel has in recent days breached the rules of
8:29 am
engagement in place since the last war between israel and lebanon in 2006 and of all lives yesterday so i ate out of it all i said to the israeli army on the border from tonight stand guard and wait for us he was speaking shortly after 2 drones came down in a hezbollah stronghold in beirut one of them exploding there have been reports that an important component of hezbollah's missile system was damaged the israeli army has remained silent on the issue israel has for years been targeting iranian interests in syria last weekend it said it prevented a multiple drone attack from inside the country by launching an airstrike that killed 2 has been our fighters there united states recently confirmed that israel was also carrying out air strikes inside iraq targeting iran's missile supply route there but the more widespread and more admitted israel's actions become more risky but its adversaries feel compelled to retaliate risking in turn a broader escalation that's in line israel's prime minister fighting an election and once again promoting his ability to keep israelis safe as long tried not to
8:30 am
cross this week he told by name to calm down i think they said no absolutely does not want. military confrontation i think the call to calm down was reflected that on the other hand i think the feeling and it's beyond that and you know i think the feeling in israel is that you cannot have iran which is declare it really interested in the demise of israel to deepen its military capabilities just across israel's northern border. for now on that border the wait continues for hezbollah to make its next move harry force it out west jerusalem. the death of a man who was deported to iraq even though he never lived there has added to the fears among iraqis in the u.s. jamie was sent to baghdad in june and lated died from medical complications she has a story from detroit. it was clear that jimmy out there would was in distress once
