Could the iPhone belonging to one of the terrorists behind the deadly San Bernardino shooting in December contain more than just information about its owner? Could it actually be a weapon? The San Bernardino District Attorney thinks it’s possible.
According to a court filing by San Bernardino DA Michael Ramos, first reported on by Ars Technica, the “seized IPhone may contain evidence that can only be found on the seized phone that it was used as a weapon to introduce a lying dormant cyber pathogen that endangers San Bernardino Count’s infrastructure.”
