The Federal Bureau of investigation (FBI), the United States must decide whether to disclose the White house information about how the iPhone was hacked, who used one of the terrorists from San Bernardino. This was previously reported by the Director of the office of James Komi. According to the newspaper The Wall Street Journal referring to informed sources, intelligence agencies believe that they have so minor information that it “should not launch an internal investigation of the government”.
A positive decision, the FBI would launch a process that could lead to the transfer of this information to Apple and its public disclosure. Apparently, in Cupertino will remain in the dark about the existence of security issues in some iPhone models. If the FBI chooses to tell us about how managed to crack the iPhone, the company will close them in one of the iOS updates.
The California court of 16 Feb has ordered Apple to change the software in the iPhone 5c so that the FBI could pick up the password to the phone of one of the two terrorists, who in December 2015 was shot in San Bernardino 14 people and wounded 21. In response, Apple CEO Tim cook said that the court’s decision threatens the safety of Apple clients. In his legal opinion addressed to the court, the company insisted on the unconstitutionality of the precedent. In addition, the company has begun to develop a smartphone, the hack which will not even Apple itself.
At the end of March it became known that US intelligence agencies were able to unlock the iPhone 5c shooter from San Bernardino without the help of Apple. Last week, FBI Director James Comey said that the Agency is paid for breaking an unknown third party more than $1.4 million. According to informed sources, the technology of hacking has been provided by the company from outside the US.
