Apple execs say San Bernardino iPhone password changed while in government custody (The Plot Thickens!)

10 posts in this topic

<snip>

However, Apple executives only learned about the change after proposing four solutions for recovering the encrypted data, all without having to compromise security for millions of customers with a so-called "backdoor" that authorities are pressuring the company to make.

One idea involved connecting the iPhone to a known Wi-Fi network in order to prompt an iCloud backup, but Apple engineers failed in their attempts to do so, and that's when they realized the password change.

Also on Friday, Apple recommended Congress resolve the escalating legal fight over a federal judge’s order compelling the company to assist the FBI in breaking through the encryption of the iPhone used by one of the San Bernardino terrorist mass shooters. Apple insists that would require creating a whole new operating system that would also serve as a key to unlock all encrypted protection on iPhones sold worldwide.

This looks like the spy apparatus is not as robust as they would have us think and are looking for an easy way into every phone in the country.

Or they are trying to make it look less robust :)

Apple stand to lose a hell of a lot of customers if they "assist" in any way to compromise the privacy of the user of their device(s).  I am not sure about other software engineers but we ALWAYS have backdoor in all of our applications.  Whilst we are not in the same league or category as the OS people we have had so many support successes with this "SlipMeIn" on support issues where the client locked the access to the database or similar.

I cannot think that Apple do not have a similar option - however they must not give that secret out to the public or they will be done-for.

:conspiracy:

Nahhhh this is BS  I'm not buying it - They knew what they were doing, changing the password while in their custody, to throw the US GOV weight @ Apple to make them implement back doors.

I wonder if they erased Barry's phone number off his speed dial before they reset the password.

Ain't venture capital great for the young uns? Note the other projects that don't get funding...like free energy devices, Tesla towers, etc.

Microsoft is able to figure out the RSA key to give to the feds, you'd think that Apple would be able to do the same thing.

Apple was able to track your every GPS move in a little file, and Microsoft don't give a crap about privacy.

Maybe it just conveniently is too encrypted to find out that Obama is behind this one too, and we can't be releasing information about a possible coverup...but how do you determine that the password was changed while it is possession.  Did the terrorist change it from another Apple device?
