A day after Opposition leaders claimed that they acquired messages from Apple warning them of ‘state-sponsored attackers,’ BJP has mentioned that the Opposition’s ‘snoopgate’ allegation in opposition to the Centre is linked to George Soros.

Sharing a thread on X that explains the connection between “Access Now,” an internet site talked about as “DIGITAL SECURITY HELPLINE” by the Apple notification acquired by the Opposition leaders, and George Soros, BJP’s Amit Malviya mentioned, “Interesting thread that draws link between George Soros funded ‘Access Now’ and Apple notifications, supposedly received only by Opposition leaders. It is therefore no surprise that Rahul Gandhi dropped everything and rushed to hold a press conference.”

“Part-2 of the thread details out the network George Soros funded ‘Access Now’ has built in India. Notification received (from Apple) by the usual suspects in Opposition ranks also refers to Access Now. Only if you believe in fairy tales, would you think it is all a coincidence,” Malviya added.

On Tuesday, Opposition social gathering leaders together with Congress’ Shashi Tharoor, Priyanka Chaturvedi of the Shiv Sena (UBT), AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi and Trinamool Congress’ Mahua Moitra posted screenshots of the message acquired on their telephones which learn, “Apple believes you are being targeted by state-sponsored attackers who are trying to remotely compromise the iPhone associated with your Apple ID.”

In an announcement issued following the incident, Apple mentioned, “Apple does not attribute the threat notifications to any specific state-sponsored attacker.”

“State-sponsored attackers are very well-funded and sophisticated, and their attacks evolve over time. Detecting such attacks relies on threat intelligence signals that are often imperfect and incomplete,” the corporate added.

In the meantime, the IT Ministry has additionally ordered a probe into the allegations made by the Opposition leaders.

“The government is concerned about this issue and it will get to the bottom of it. We have already ordered investigation into it,” IT Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw mentioned.
