There Might Be a Global Attack on the Iphone- Edward Snowden


NSA Whistleblower, Edward Snowden, is foreseeing a global iPhone attack in the wake of the FBI and Apple’s encryption tussle.

In February, a federal judge asked Apple to help the FBI unlock an iPhone belonging to Syed Farook, who was responsible for the shootings in San Bernardino in December which left 14 people dead. Apple declined to help the FBI, stating it would require writing a software that would be like a master key and could put millions of other iPhone users at risk.

The FBI got a third party to unlock the particular device, an iPhone 5C, but have kept the method used a secret. Snowden feels Hackers might take advantage of that loophole to attack other iPhones.

Personally, I think we’ll see it by the end of August.
