8 months ago a controversy broke out in the case of iPhone San Bernardino . Today, Special Agent Rich Thorton said that the agency has obtained the iPhone and seek another terrorist unlock the device to access your data.
Dahir Adan, the owner of the iPhone has seized the FBI, killed 10 people in Minnesota before being fatally shot a police officer. The attack was claimed by ISIS in social networks days later.
"DAHIR ADAN'S IPHONE IS LOCKED. WE ARE IN THE PROCESS OF LOOKING AT OUR LEGAL OPTIONS TO ACCESS THE DEVICE AND THE DATA IT MIGHT CONTAIN. "
The Thorton agent would not mention the iPhone model that Adam had, or that operating system running. This is very important information because since iOS 8 on iPhone and iPad was encrypted without the possibility that Apple can decrypt the contents.
In the case of San Bernardino iPhone, the FBI announced it had a method to decrypt the iPhone and access information unlocking the device. But it is not a cheap method precisely.
Moreover, a researcher at Cambridge named Sergei Skorobogatov demonstrated last month how he could access the data of an iPhone 5c encrypted to withdraw its flash, clone memory, and testing passwords after rewriting the memory data to prevent the counter follow the number of attempts.
Will we again controversy? Will he return the FBI to ask Apple to access information encrypted iPhone Dahir Adan?
