Spyhide’s Reign Cut Short as Web Host Shuts Down Back-End Server

The Spyhide saga first came to light in late July 2023 when a cybersecurity researcher and hacktivist stumbled upon this malicious mobile software. Spyhide, categorized as mobile malware, had the sinister capability to relay real-time information from the compromised device to another, including data on contacts, messages, photos, call logs, recordings, and precise location details. Developed by an Iranian company, this commercial product earned the moniker “spouseware” due to its common use by distrustful partners. Typically, it would be surreptitiously installed on a significant other’s device to monitor their activities, all while remaining concealed on the victim’s mobile phone.
