FBI to Apple : “We will unlocked iPhone by our Own”
This is the statement of FBI when Apple refused to cooperate with them by creating a backdoored version of the iphone owned by the terrorist involved on San Bernardino shooting. Few days ago Department of Justice (DOJ) – says that the FBI has successfully unlocked the terrorist’s iPhone 5c and accessed crucial data for investigation on the phone by using some secret technique!
“The government has now successfully accessed the data stored on Farook’s iPhone and therefore no longer requires the assistance of Apple,” the attorneys wrote in a court filing Monday. “Accordingly, the government hereby requests that the Order Compelling Apple Inc to Assist Agents in Search dated February 16, 2016, be vacated.” says FBI
Yes the method of course is Secret!
From the beginning, we objected to the FBI’s demand that Apple builds a backdoor into the iPhone because we believed it was wrong and would set a dangerous precedent. As a result of the government’s dismissal, neither of these occurred. This case should never have been brought.
We will continue to help law enforcement with their investigations, as we have done all along, and we will continue to increase the security of our products as the threats and attacks on our data become more frequent and more sophisticated.
Apple believes deeply that people in the United States and around the world deserve data protection, security and privacy. Sacrificing one for the other only puts people and countries at greater risk.
This case raised issues which deserve a national conversation about our civil liberties, and our collective security and privacy. Apple remains committed to participating in that discussion. Read the full state here
Some experts says that this secret method involve working with NAND Mirroring. The method involves copying the contents of NAND memory of the phone and creating a fresh copy of it on separate drive.
