San Bernardino prosecutor raises concerns about ‘cyber pathogen’ in terrorist's iPhone
March 4, 2016 - Uncategorized
The district attorney of San Bernardino County, Michael Ramos, has raised concerns about the possibility of a “dormant cyber pathogen” in the iPhone 5c used by a terrorist in attacks in the county on Dec. 2.
Security experts are questioning whether such a thing as a cyber pathogen at all exists.
The submission was made in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California, Eastern Division, which recently ordered Apple to help the FBI unlock by brute force the iPhone used by terrorist Syed Rizwan Farook. Apple has refused to help the FBI and raised privacy and security issues.
