CIA Spent Years to Break iPhones



The CIA has been working to break Apple’s security on iPhones and iPads, even before the devices were sold to the public, according to The Intercept. The work has been discussed at an annual secret 1 conference called the Jamboree in a Lockheed Martin facility in Virginia. Researchers studied physical and “non-invasive” ways to penetrate Apple’s encryption-and claimed they had created a modified version of Apple’s software development tool that could sneak spies into devices.

While the work would obviously allow spies to break into Apple products used by suspected criminals and terrorists, it would also thwart “mobile security [provided] to hundreds of millions of Apple customers across the globe.” Read more at The Intercept.
