The FBI continues to crack an iPhone without support AppleСергей Dragun | 26.05.2020
The FBI never received technical assistance and hacking the device yourself by switching to attempt decryption of messages protected through encryption.
Attorney General William Barr and FBI Director Chris ray announced that after several months of work of the technical experts of the FBI were able to unlock two iPhone. One of them used
a soldier from Saudi Arabia who attacked a military air base in Pensacola in December 2019.
A terrorist was killed, and earlier this year the attorney General asked Apple to help unlock phones. It was the iPhone 5, and 7. Apple has provided investigators with an iCloud backup,
information about accounts and transaction data, but did not help to hack the device. The situation threatened to resume the confrontation of “Apple against the FBI”, as in 2016. Then the manufacturer
refused to unlock the iPhone after the terrorist attack in San Bernardino.
The government appealed to the Federal court to force Apple to do the work of unlocking your phone. However, the dispute ended in a stalemate and came to the aid of a third party, which
hacked iPhone. After the attack at Pensacola, the FBI used its own decision.
Recall that the Bureau has third-party vendors FOR GrayShift and Cellebrite, through which you can encrypt the device and to install the spy software. The software runs on
the latest iPhone models up to iPhone 11 Pro Max.
The FBI is still cooperating with the Israeli NSO Group. Her Pegasus was used by foreign governments against dissidents, journalists, lawyers and human rights defenders.
Of course, society could not miss this fact, however, the event dedicated to the possibilities of hacking the mobile forces of the FBI, Director of the ray and A. G. Barr was able to turn the media’s attention on
Apple and evade any difficult questions. No one has made it clear that the Bureau mean for privacy, civil liberties and data security.
