A recent vulnerability in WhatsApp shows that there's little defenders can
do to detect and analyze iPhone hacks. Some iOS security experts say this
is yet another incident that shows iOS is so locked down it's hard -- if
not impossible -- to figure out if your own iPhone has been hacked.

[...] "The simple reality is there are so many 0-day exploits for iOS,"
said Stefan Esser, a security researcher that specializes in iOS. "And the
only reason why just a few attacks have been caught in the wild is that
iOS phones by design hinder defenders to inspect the phones." As of today,
there is no specific tool that an iPhone user can download to analyze
their phone and figure out if it has been compromised. In 2016, Apple took
down an app made by Esser that was specifically designed to detect
malicious jailbreaks.
