As I Said Yesterday

…when the news broke…

Apple still doesn’t know how FBI hacked San Bernardino terrorist’s iPhone without their help

WASHINGTON – The FBI’s announcement that it mysteriously hacked into an iPhone is a public setback for Apple Inc., as consumers learned that they can’t keep the government out of even an encrypted device that U.S. officials had claimed was impossible to crack. Apple, meanwhile, remains in the dark about how to restore the security of its flagship product.

…and I’m serious:

“RUN, helpful 12 year old!!! RUNNNNN!!!!!

    Don’t believe that for a minute.

    There’s enough BS in this FBI statement to fertilize the Gobi Desert.

  3. JeffS says:

    Sounds like payback to Apple for not getting on their knees.

  4. Kathy Kinsley says:

    I’m with all of the above. Sounds very suspicious to me. And no, I don’t think it was a helpful 12-year-old. Such don’t exist. 😛

    Rumor has it that the FBI turned to Israelis to do the job.

    Michael, that’s what they want you to believe.

  7. JeffS says:

    An IT friend of mine says the word on the street is, the FBI already knew how to hack the phone. They just didn’t to admit their capabilities to the world.

  8. Chancy*girl says:

    That would only work on those really old iOS versions (7 and earlier). In iOS 9 (current) it will permanently lock the phone after 10 attempts and you would have to redo from scratch.

    True, Chancy*girl. But if they’re willing to sell that, what do they have that’s NOT on the open market?
