FBI confirms plan to keep San Bernardino iPhone hack a secret

As used to be rumored to be the case, the FBI has now showed that it's going to now not percentage with Apple the process it used to destroy into the San Bernardino iPhone on the middle of a fresh legal tussle between the 2 events.

In a remark to The New York Times, an FBI consultant defined that the Bureau lacks enough technical details about the hack to be of use. Thus, the problem would possibly not be handed on to the White Space to come to a decision whether or not the ideas will have to be shared with Apple.

"The F.B.I. bought the process from an out of doors birthday celebration in order that shall we unencumber the San Bernardino tool," Amy S. Hess, government assistant director for science and generation, stated in a remark.

"We didn't, on the other hand, acquire the rights to technical information about how the process purposes, or the character and extent of any vulnerability upon which the process would possibly depend so as to function. As a outcome, recently we would not have sufficient technical details about any vulnerability that may allow any significant assessment" through the White Space examiners, she stated.

The remark places a ultimate nail within the coffin for the query of whether or not Apple would get any concrete details about specific vulnerabilities exploited by way of the hack. Regardless of the case, then again, the Bureau used to be in the end pressured to pay a lovely penny; FBI director James Comey lately hinted the hack cost upwards of $1.3 million dollars to safe.
