It turned out that the Federal Bureau of Investigation doesn’t know how the hack used to break into the San Bernardino gunman’s iPhone works. However, the agency paid about $1m for the software, which reportedly can be used again to unlock any other iPhone 5C or older running iOS 9.
According to the recent media reports, the amount paid for the hack developed by professional hackers was less than previously reported. It is also claimed that the hack can also be used as many times as you want without extra payments. As a result, the Justice Department unlocked the San Bernardino shooter’s iPhone in March thanks to cooperation with the hackers, thus effectively leading the FBI to drop its attempt to force Apple to create software to unlock its own phone. Apple fought back, claiming that such move would compromise the security of all iPhones.
Now it turns out that the FBI purchased a physical mechanism used to unlock the smartphone, but has no idea what makes it work. The identity of the hackers who developed the way to unlock the phone is also kept secret. This is why the FBI had to confirm that it would not disclose Apple the security flaw exploited in the hack, simply because the FBI does not know how the latter works.

|Anyone want to bet that when Apple updates their OS and this crack no longer works, that the FBI will have to pay more money for "updates" to it? Way to sucker the FBI lol|

|Amen #4...Governments are all a bunch of corrupt, liars, deceitful, warmongering disgusting a$$holes. The scary thing is that we allow them to be so. It is true that a people of sheep begets a government of wolves...|
|I have a love/hate opinion of hackers. It's frightening the potential for destruction, or salvation, the world's hackers have.|
Btw, the American 'sheep' have finally awoken to the fact that we have been lied to all along. Hopefully, a redemptive change for the positive is in the near future.

|Don't kid yourself knowumsayin the average 'sheep' cares nothing for true freedom and only wants the freedom to be comfortable.|
Big brother (controlled by corporate interests) will continue to spy on it's own and will continue to use terrorism as an excuse for breaking the law.
