FBI and iPhone

The story of the busting of the suicide bomber from San Bernardino, which was initiated by the FBI, is gathering new interesting details. Now the iPhone manufacturer – Apple has appealed to the FBI with a request to share the “technology” of hacking, because IT is at stake for millions of users of the popular gadget and its good name. However, there was a refusal.

As it turned out, representatives of the special services simply do not know anything about how they hacked the iPhone, as the hacker secretly hired by the FBI was engaged in this, by the way, he estimated his services at 1.3 million dollars.

In theory, the government, faced with another hacker attack on state information resources, should find out why this happened and what needs to be done to prevent such cases. However, this time it did not happen: the hacking mechanism remained a secret, and the White House preferred to keep silent.

However, it seems that this problem concerns not so much the national security of the United States, but directly to Apple, which would like to know all the details of the hacking of its product. The goal is clear – this kind of important information will help in updating the protection of iOS software to eliminate the resulting “hole”.
