Rampage exploits a critical vulnerability in modern phones that allows apps to gain unauthorized access to the device. While apps are typically not permitted to read data from other apps, a malicious program can craft a RAMpage exploit to get administrative control and get hold of secrets stored in the device. This might include your passwords stored in a password manager or browser, your personal photos, emails, instant messages and even business-critical documents.
While the Tame Apple Press is celebrating they are not telling you is that RAMpage may also affect Apple devices, home computers, or even cloud servers.
Researchers say they've updated a previous app they used in the past to detected Drammer to also identify if a device is vulnerable to RAMpage.
