The Federal Bureau of Investigation ordered San Bernardino County staff to tamper with the Apple account of a couple who carried out the infamous December shooting that claimed 14 lives. However, the attempt to reset the gunman’s iCloud password made it impossible to see if there was another way to get access to information stored on his iPhone without Apple’s help.
The US government is trying to figure out if the shooter communicated with any of the people he killed in December 2015 or if he communicated with any unknown co-conspirators. This is despite the fact that it is known that the gunman had another phone he destroyed.
As a result, on 16 February, a federal judge ordered the tech giant to develop software that would make it easier for the American government to crack the 4-digit passcode on the gunman’s device. The FBI outlined that they didn’t ask for iCloud password, just a passcode to a particular device. However, Apple refused to comply, calling this move a clear way to violate user trust, the security of Apple products and a core tenet of its business. While the company received support of other tech giant who usually compete with Apple, the FBI claimed that Apple has placed its marketing goals over national security.
In this particular case, the FBI sought data on the shooter’s iPhone, which was in fact owned by the San Bernardino County government. They figured out that such data could be backed up into iCloud service automatically if the device connects to one of its default Wi-Fi networks. Apple did have the technical ability to get inside an iCloud account and has already provided the investigators with any iCloud data it had for the gunman. However, it turned out that the latest backup was made in October 2015, 6 weeks before the shooting. The problem is that such feature is automatically disabled if someone changes the iCloud password.
San Bernardino county claimed that the only reason it tampered with potential evidence was because it was told to do so by the federal agency. Now Apple can’t help the investigators to unlock physical iPhones, because the passcodes are encrypted within the device, and Apple has no access to them. The iPhone maker said that had the password reset not happened, Apple would not be going to court with its own government.

|I believe 90 percent of all terrorist stuff to be fake or false flag operations and psychological operations to brainwash the general population.. DO some google and youtube searches any of these things and type is hoax or false flag or crises actors fakery etc and you'll realize from a little reading and video watching that the tv and news and mass media are not your friends and their job is not to take care of you and keep you informed. The TV programs are there to PROGRAM YOU.|
|Well they have done a top notch job of programming YOU if you believe 90% of terrorism that is going on in the world is false.|
|It's a shame no one still can't crack or unencrypted|
the passcodes on the device or get inside an iCloud
account to change the passcodes. So finding or
receiving lost iPhone is useless if the iPhone not
legally yours. I had several offers of buying iPhone 6
for as little as $30, but had to pass it up.

|90% does seem high but there is no doubt the views most distributed and supported and sold in most media outlets is extremist viewpoints, as in the far left the far right extreme liberal conservative, only divided are people easily conquered and subjugated. In my life experience the hardest line and view to hold is the middle, the mature compromise. Apparently sensible social interaction isn't profitable for the old money.|
The internet is almost more dangerous source of misinformation because it takes so much more diligence in research to separate legitimate and absolute b.s. But i absolutely love it cause it's about the only place u can get quick current counterpoints to mainstream media, real middling views of hot topics, political platforms, anything so surrounded by hype and extreme view misinformation. i tend to read about a third of these articles that are selected by ET from torrent freak.
Thank you for a lifestyle fitting website ET (the only reason the government is so hurt about apple is that security, is their only major selling point that differentiates them in the market, to comply would be business suicide, yet the capitalist government of the U.S. is happy to sell any value law protection to lobby money while crying over this one practical matter of separation of business and state). what a mad mad world
|Oh please, this is nothing more than bunch of baloney sandwich propaganda garbage show. All Apple has back door|
and CIA, FBI, GOVERNMNET, BIG BROTHER, MILITARY INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX , TERROISTS,COMMUNIST, NSA AND NASA ARE ALL THE SAME.
AND IF YOU THINK IT WOULD NOT AFFECT YOUR LIFE, IT WOULD EVENTUALLY ONCE THESE PERVERTS GAIN ACCESS TO YOUR PRIVATE LIFE. THEY WILL NOT STOP UNTIL YOUR LIBERTY IS TAKEN AWAY 100%.

|I thought ET had a much smarter crowd. Nothing but propaganda to destroy encryption and privacy. You people really believe they're going through all this trouble for one persons phone? You're so naive to believe they have the citizens best interests at heart. FYI: shooting your co-workers is not a "terrorist attack" All part of the agenda. Always gotta have a boogeyman.|
|Pay no attention to the tinfoil hatters in the comments they are part of cointelpro. Or as I like to call it "spot the loony"|
|"spot the loony"? "tinfoil hatters "? "cointelpro"? WELL... I GUESS YOU ARE NOT FROM US. PLEASE DON'T SHOOT THE MESSAGANGER. I AM JUST TRYING TO SPREAD THE WORDS. JUST BECAREFUL WHAT YOU ARE DOING. DON'T BECOME ONE OF THE TWITTER OR FACEBOOK VICTIMS BECASUE THEY ARE WATHCHING YOU!!|
DON FORGET: BANKERS, CIA, FBI, GOVERNMNET, BIG BROTHER, MILITARY INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX , TERROISTS,COMMUNIST, NSA AND NASA ARE ALL THE SAME.
|Why don't the FBI ask the NSA for the metadata on this phone?|
We all know that the NSA is bulk collecting all metadata info from all cellphones in the US and elsewhere! Ed Snowden proved it when he leaked the documents in 2013. It's called the PRISM program.
|mikeymike 100 is totaly right megadatta|
|well 90% is a high estimation and just that,but to say its all conspiracy theory is stupid and naive,shall we go back to 2000 when bill binney left the NSA after 40 years because of the NSA spying unconstitutionally on US citizens without their knowledge or upto the present with Ed Snowden and the countless government incursions into privacy since all now covered globally with the threat of terrorism when said terrorism was created by the same governments to begin with,ISIS was created by the very same governments who were supposed to be fighting a war on terrorism and these same governments are now using the threat of terrorism to remove any vestige of privacy and control from our daily lives in their own bid to control the Internet and WWW as laid out in the NSA/CIA whitepaper of 2001 all of which was before 911,the patriot act and the enforcement of the UK`s anti-terrorism legislature and subsequent metadata raping of the UK.It is not conspiracy theory but fact hard stone cold facts look it up and be informed since to believe there is no foundation to the theories is ignorance of facts which have substantial proof behind them.I think if the FBI hadn`t screwed the pooch by trying to hack apple in the first instance they would have been supplied anything they asked for under Apples own TOS,but since they felt empowered to try hacking the data illegally they were hoisted on their own petard and destroyed any evidence their might have been.|
|Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country."_Adolf Hitler in Mein Kampf, a book still forbidden in some countries (such as France), wrote: "In the size of the lie there is always contained a certain factor of credibility, since the great masses of the people...will more easily fall victim to a great lie than to a small one."Following that arguement and looking at Iraq it is easy to see how the use of 3 letters started a war when Tony Blair told the British people Iraq has WMD`s a unanimous vote to go into action came forward,little did the people know Tony Blair had his own agenda along with his chums in the USA and his taking the UK into a war that lasted 10 years+ made him a cool 25 million pounds,the same lies are employed by the USA in many such exploits going back to Johnson and the Vietnam war,these days in a lot of respects many great lies have been perpetuated and many made fearful by the medias misrepresentation with red flags and crisis actors all of which only serve to solidify the governments position and the self interest of the politicians in power at the time.|
|cointelpro for the unenlightened was part of the FBI`s fight against communism in 1956 an abbreviation of counter intelligence program,personally as being English and in no way politically active I can only comment on the facts as I see them and unlike the FBI,CIA,NSA,GCHQ or corporate America I have no vested interest other than my right to my own freedom and privacy,another great story thankyou SaM.
