Edward Snowden: “The FBI tells Apple how unlock iPhone San Bernardino”
Edward Snowden says once again the controversy between the Apple and the FBI, this time claiming that the federal agency should disclose the vulnerability used to unlock the iPhone 5c of the terrorist of San Bernardino, only “in the interest of national cyber security“.
Up to now, the mild tantativi made by Apple to get more information from the FBI were unnecessary, given that the agency has appealed to a series of rules in order not to publish details about the exploit. In reality, we don't even know if the contract signed with the team of hackers unlocked the device allows the FBI divultare such information.
In any case, Edward Snowden says that the FBI is obliged to let you know how it was unlocked the iPhone 5c:
When the FBI investigates a case so exceptional to overcome the security of a device, but get the information, then we face a circumstance exceptional when it is discovered an exploit. It is the duty of the FBI to make sure to close that gap, so that all citizens are safe. Must not disclose that information to promote Apple, but only to defend all american citizens.
Remember that the FBI has paid approximately $ 1 million to obtain the release by a team of hackers is not yet identified.
