The Justice Dept. yesterday asked a federal court to cancel a hearing slated for today on whether Apple computer should be forced to help them break into a terrorist’s computer. According to Politico, federal prosecutors filed the following with the court:
“On Sunday, March 20, 2016, an outside party demonstrated to the FBI a possible method for unlocking Farook’s iPhone.”
“Testing is required to determine whether it is a viable method that will not compromise data on Farook’s iPhone.”
“If the method is viable, it should eliminate the need for the assistance from Apple Inc. … in this case.”
Four weeks ago, Cybersecurity expert John McAfee bragged that he could break into the iPhone in just 3 weeks and charge the FBI nothing.
McAfee says that he works with the best hackers in the world.
“I would eat my shoe on the Neil Cavuto’s show if we could not break the encryption on the San Bernardino phone.”
Today, McAfee showed up on CNBC where he denied involvement in the FBI’s breakthrough:
Apple has said that it is improving its security in future releases so that in the near future, even they will be unable to break in.
