The FBI explains how he hacked the iPhone of San Bernardino (or maybe not...)
You may recall the battle between Apple and the FBI about the release of the smartphone of one of the bombers, of San Bernardino. Well, after months, the government has released a 100-page document that “explains” how the iPhone was hacked with success, without the help of the Cupertino company.
After the case of “Apple vs. the FBI”, the controversy and doubts about how the Federal Bureau of Investigation u.s. was able to retrieve the data contained on the iPhone are not missed. To the rescue comes the FBI, who explains that three companies have tried to get the job, but the one that actually was involved cannot mention publicly what happened. The practice of hacking the iPhone of one of the terrorists used is in fact “protected” by a non-disclosure agreement entered into between the FBI and the third-party company.
If the legal battle between Apple and FBI now belongs to the past, in the future, we may relive the stories are very similar. In fact, as reported by CNET, the FBI is apparently taking into consideration the legal options to gain access to another iPhone, this time owned by a man accused of killing 10 people in a mall in Minnesota.
The document released by the FBI is interesting, but up to a certain point. Remain doubts about the company with which the FBI has worked and, especially, the method used to hack the iPhone.
