FBI to Disclose How It Broke into Shooter’s iPhone

A US court has issued a summons to the FBI following the request of the group of media outfits to release details about how the agency hacked an iPhone of a San Bernardino shooter.


The Associated Press, Gannett newspapers and Vice Media have filed a lawsuit to compel the FBI to reveal details about the way they broke into the phone belonging to Syed Farook earlier this year. The lawsuit asks for the identity of the vendor from whom the federal agency bought the hack, and how much it paid for it. The media organizations believe they need to know whether the technique exposes a critical security flaw in Apple product. So, the FBI was officially served with a summons to appear in court, but no hearing date has been set yet.

7 months ago, the Federal Bureau of Investigation asked the iPhone maker directly for help in breaking into the shooter’s phone, but Apple refused. The FBI tried to compel them through the court to give up access to the phone, but after they realized it was hopeless, they have found a third-party exploit and successfully hacked the phone.

So far, the FBI hasn’t revealed anything about that exploit or the company from whom it purchased it, except for the detail that its price may have been upwards of $1m. This move may provide a valuable insight into law enforcement’s relationship with private companies that operate in legal grey areas selling hacks and exploits.

Media outfits believe the FBI contracting with an unidentified vendor effectively sanctioned it to retain a dangerous technology without knowing whether the vendor has adequate security measures and will act only in the public interest. The organizations explained in the claim that they were looking neither for the technique used nor for materials related to the investigation. All they wanted to know was the identity of the third-party vendor and the price paid. The outfits argue that such kind of information into government contracting is usually available to the public under the law, while the government has only invoked an exception that pertains to ongoing law enforcement investigations. However, there is no way the disclosure of the vendor’s name could impact an ongoing investigation. This is why the outfits believe there is a very good chance to get the records released.

blade70 avatarLet's not forget the security researcher that acomplished the same task with off-the-shelf components worth less than $200.00 US Dlls and published a paper about it. Whatever they paid, it was too much.

BestDay avatarI'm surprised that Apple actually turned them down when they asked.
Maybe most of the money spent was hush money.
When they do reveal who the organization was then you'll be sure that Apple will crack down on them.

BARBAZ avatarApple will try to BUY the hacker, get them to become an employee/contractor "tied up in massive legal restrictions" working on exploits for them. VERY normal practice in Tech circles for most Manufacturers and Software Co's as we all know.

The guy with £200.00 worth of gear who hacked it Deserves a Nobel prize fro "breaking Tech Giants strangle hold on our Data". The Nobels were created for among other things, acts of unique form and with the global potential for the public benefit. I can't think of a more fitting recipient, especially as he published it instead of trying to earn a fortune from it.

Of course now the phones can be hacked they'll, be targetted by criminals more, and ALL PHONE insurance costs will go up, BUT MORESO THE APPLE DVICE ONES lol.

I did say way back, WHEN THE aPPLE REFUSAL STORY FIRST BROKE, that I thought the FBI should get a Hacker to do it for them and Pay ESSENTIALLY "UNDER THE TABLE FOR IT" for it. They tried asking Apple and they said no, so it was a challenge the Hackers could not resist I am sure, No doubt a Dark Web "Prize of 7 figures plus was put out there for encouragement by the FBI from their "sluch fund" lol.

There will be many more hacks out there, so that when Apple try to shut these exploits, more will be available.

NOTHING is unhackable, given time and will power. That is my belief. Recent news shows this to be obvious.

Nice to see Apples overpriced Tat taken down a peg or two or twenty, and their device security USP wiped out in days, for which they have been overcharging for way too long.
Serves them right.
If they'd helped in nailing a terrorist, these hacks would not now be in the Public domain or about to be forced into the public domain.

Apple scored an 2own goal" on this one for sure. Couldn;t have happened to a better bunch, and is long overdue. This will cause them such problems in pricing a device high when equally secure devices are made by others and the TECH itself is better and advancing faster on no "Fruit-Fare" items

HA HA love it
