A Democrat senator in the US has revealed that the FBI paid a private company US$900,000 to break the encryption on an iPhone 5C that had been owned by one of the terrorists involved in an attack in San Bernardino, California, in December 2015.
The FBI has left the door open to a future stoush with Apple, similar to the one that just ended, by claiming on Wednesday that the tool it used to access data on an iPhone 5C does not work with older phones.
The fact that the FBI was able to access data on an iPhone without Apple's intervention, using a method provided by an outsider, underscores the risk that was initially outlined by Apple, according to a senior official at digital identity firm ThreatMetrix.
