US govt says it has cracked killer’s iPhone, legs it from Apple fight
I have Good News and Bad News on the FBI vs. Apple front. The good news is the FBI managed to gain access to the phone without Apple’s help. The Bad News? That this now means that there is a hack out there that allows people to gain access to data on your encrypted phone without your approval. Yes, you are now less secure. Will the FBI publish this exploit now that it knows about it? Doubtful. While it might like to keep this trick to itself for future use, it is by not disclosing this making ALL iPhone users less secure. How hard would it be for a foreign government to do the same thing? Hackers? Read more below on the Register.
