San Bernardino mass shooting

 

Apple’s CEO opposes court order to help FBI unlock iPhone belonging to San Bernardino shooter


PUBLISHED Wed, February 17, 2016 - 10:17am EST


Apple’s CEO Tim Cook says his company will not comply with a court order to help the FBI break into an iPhone recovered from one of the San Bernardino shooters citing the move would threaten the security of its customers. (more)

In an open letter, Cook said the FBI wanted the technology giant to create a backdoor to reveal data on an iPhone 5c owned by one of the shooters, Syed Farook.

He called the move "hacking its own users" and stressed doing so would undermine decades of security advancements that protect its customers from sophisticated hackers and cybercriminals, adding the company could find “no precedent for an American company being forced to expose its customers to a greater risk of attack."
