Re: Interesting twist ...

Maybe not that much of an over-reaction. Sure, it's a tethered rather than a remote hack. However, journalists, activists, and politicians are all classes of people who tend to be of interest to state security agencies. At least some of them would be interesting enough to justify making unauthorised amendments to their phone during a "routine, non-targeted" border check.

If they'd tried to apply the same warning to everyone I'd be saying GTFO though.
