Cheating Man Caught After Uber Sends Notifications To Wife’s iPhone

A cheating businessman from Côte d’Azur in the south of France is blaming Uber for the break-up of his marriage. According to him, it is not his fault for having sex with another woman. He is suing Uber for US$48 million after notifications from the app alerted his wife to the trips he was making to his lover’s home. He only used his wife’s iPhone once to request for a ride, but the glitch in the app caused the notifications to continue streaming to his wife’s phone. Read More….

Will Apple ever answer its iPhone security questions?

Some people simply have to have the latest phone – teenagers, techno-hipsters, app developers, those utterly devoted to tasting every Apple product. Even some in law enforcement or those intent on keeping secrets (looking at you, Hillary Clinton).
So when

Hacking terrorist’s iPhone was easy compared to next FBI hurdle

231The next frontier in the battle between the FBI and technology companies over encrypted communications will be more legally complicated — and messy — than trying to get into the iPhone of a dead terrorist. Messaging tools like Facebook’s WhatsApp and Internet services that automatically encrypt the content of texts, phone calls and other data […] View full post on AmIHackerProof.com | Can You Be Hacked?

Apple might not find out how the FBI hacked the San Bernardino iPhone

160301-fbi-comey-100647907-large

The strange tale of the San Bernardino iPhone seems like it’s almost over, although it touched off a national debate about encryption that’s just getting started. Apple probably won’t find out what method was used by the third-party firm that broke into the iPhone 5c used by shooter Syed Rizwan Farook, reports Reuters.

The government says that the unidentified international firm that did the hack has legal ownership of the method, so while the FBI got the data it wanted, it’s unable to disclose the method to Apple. There’s actually a system in place, known as the Vulnerabilities Equities Process, that’s designed to evaluate flaws discovered by the government’s own agencies to determine if they should be disclosed to the technology companies who can patch them, or if the vulnerabilities can remain secret to be used by the NSA, FBI, or other agencies.

But in this case, the FBI says it doesn’t even know enough about the method to be able to submit it for evaluation. The firm that “owns” the hack is free to keep it secret and sell it to anyone—government or criminal alike.

As recently as last week, FBI Director James Comey made it sound like the bureau was still weighing its options about disclosing the flaw to Apple, not that it was technologically or legally prohibited from doing so. Speaking at Kenyon College on April 6, Comey said, “If we tell Apple, they’re going to fix it and we’re back where we started. As silly as it may sound, we may end up there. We just haven’t decided yet.”

The other piece of bad news in this case: A source in law enforcement told CBS News that the San Bernardino iPhone hasn’t produced useful evidence so far, although they aren’t done analyzing all the data. You may recall that the iPhone 5c in question was provided by Farook’s employer, San Bernardino County, and he also had a personal cell phone that he destroyed prior to committing the crime. Farook and his wife and co-conspirator Tashfeen Malik were killed in a gunfight with law enforcement after murdering 14 people and seriously wounding 22.

Using zero-day exploit revealed by professional hackers, FBI reportedly hacked San Bernardino iPhone

2016-04-13-image-6

After several weeks of demands, and on the eve of the trial, the FBI said it no longer required Apple’s help to crack the San Bernardino iPhone last month after the government firm was aided by a “third-party.”
According to the Isreali media, this unnamed entity was Cellebrite, a mobile forensic company based in the Middle Eastern country. But according to a report from the Washington Post, this wasn’t the case.
The site claims that the FBI paid a group of professional hackers for providing information regarding a previously unknown security flaw that helped the government agency break into Syed Rizwan Farook’s iPhone.
The Post claims that the hacking group, which hasn’t been identified, brought the government agency “at least one” zero-day exploit capable of circumventing the iPhone’s brute-force protection features: the automatic wipe function that activates after 10 failed pin entries, and the gradual increase in the delay between pin attempts.
It appears that the vulnerability was specific to the iPhone 5c when running iOS 9, and wouldn’t have worked on later models/operating systems. We don’t know the exact nature of the vulnerability, and the government is still debating whether to reveal it to Apple.
Once the FBI had the new information, it was able to use custom-built hardware to brute-force the four-digit password and access the contents of the phone without the risk of triggering the security measures.
