Apple responded on Tuesday to Germany's Der Spiegel reports that the National Security Agency had developed a system to hack into and monitor iPhones called "Dropout Jeep," saying it never worked with the U.S. spy agency and was unaware of efforts to target its smartphones. Der Spiegel referred to it as a "trojan," or malware that helps hackers get into protected systems. The report, which surfaced on Sunday, did not suggest that Apple had cooperated with the U.S. spying agency on so-called backdoors.
