No iPhone is Safe from the FBI

Image credit: Macitynet.it
The US government has successfully accessed data stored on the San Bernardino gunman's iPhone, thus ending a six week-long clash between Apple and the FBI. Apple were refusing to unlock the device, citing privacy issues, however the FBI enlisted a third-party company to do the job for them. But the question remains, could a law enforcement agency have forced Apple to unlock the device?

This definitely won't be the first or the last Apple device that the FBI will want to crack, in fact it has been reported that there are a dozen other cases where the law enforcement agency want access to an individual's personal device. Does this now mean that the FBI can access any iPhone with a passcode? 

Originally, the court order filed by the FBI had instructed Apple to come up a new version of it's operating system that would have prevented the iPhone from deleting its data or imposing long lock out periods if too many incorrect passcodes were entered. It's important to note that the latest court filings do not say that someone else has now done this, but merely that a third-party company had helped the FBI to retrieve some data stored on the device. 

The firm who reportedly helped the FBI with the case is called Cellebrite and they had previously discussed bypassing the passcode lock rather than trying to figure out the number. However, by doing this it would yield a limited amount of handset data and even if it works once, Apple upgrade their software regularly, so it might not work again if security fixes have been made. 

Theresa May is also intending to bring in a new surveillance law that will make tech firms hand over information if the law enforcement requests it through "equipment interference warrants". 

While it is always going to be possible that someone could hack into your phone, it doesn't mean that you should make it easy for them. Update the iOS software as soon as Apple releases it and use encryption-enabled apps to digitally scramble data.

  1. There are cases when it's reasonable to hire a professional than waste time and effort trying to DIY. For the first time in my life I used a payforessay service and I have no regrets. I spent time on what really felt important to me and successfully turned in the essay on a subject I hated. I do recommend payforessay service!

  15. Always make sure that the casino fully accepts players from a country where you have a place of residence. Many countries formally ban online casinos from operating in their territory view. In practise, not all countries apply this prohibition to every casino. Also, not all countries have influence on casinos based in gambling legislative havens. But many casinos prefer retreating and not accepting players from such countries.
