FBI brands Apple ‘jerks’ for making iPhones too difficult to crack


A US Federal Bureau of Investigation official who has become so pissed off with Apple's iPhone security, he has described its products as the work of an "evil genius".

The tech giant, which has offered billions of products, has made it more and more tough to break into iPhones, claiming it keeps clients safer from hackers. However, government officers say these measures are getting in the way of justice by blocking potential proof from suspected criminals.

"At what point is it just trying to one-up things and at what point is it to thwart law enforcement?" stated FBI forensic expert Stephen Flatley in the course of the International Conference on Cyber Security in Manhattan this week.

Describing Apple as "jerks", Mr. Flatley revealed that Apple not too long ago made its iPhones even tougher to access.  It has just lately added a trick that makes password cracking software a lot slower, making it tougher for law enforcement to break into phones, he mentioned.

Apple's track record on helping the FBI is mixed. Last yr it claimed to "immediately" provide help with accessing the telephone of Devin Kelley, a shooter who massacred 26 in a Texas church.  It has beforehand claimed to work with law enforcement each day and provides training to agents.

Tim Cook, Apple's chief executive, mentioned the iPhone giant has been sharing metadata with British security services` to assist with their investigations.

However, encryption remains to be a tricky nut to crack. Mark Stokes, head of digital and electronics forensics on the Metropolitan Police informed the Telegraph that it could be a "killer" as it's used more extensively in messaging and popular apps.
