Self-Proclaimed 'Cyber-Security Legend' John McAfee Offers To Help The FBI Hack Terrorist's iPhone So Apple Doesn't Have To! See What He Said!

no title

John McAfee is a cybersecurity expert, a presidential candidate for the Libertarian party, and apparently an overall badass.

And if the government takes his offer, the antivirus software founder and his rag-tag team of hackers will help the FBI out of a tough pickle!

Earlier this week, Apple CEO Tim Cook said the company would refuse to comply with a court order to help the FBI unlock an iPhone used by one of the terrorists behind the San Bernardino mass shooting last December.

In a statement, Cook explained that creating the technology to bypass their products' security features would be "too dangerous to create" — because it there would be no way to guarantee control over who uses the virtual "back door."

And as it started to look like Apple was about to enter an epic legal battle with the FBI over the issue, McAfee might have just offered the government its own back door solution.

In an op-ed article published on Business Insider, the 70-year-old computer programmer said that the FBI wouldn't even need to ask for Apple's help if it hired better hackers!

McAfee explained that he works with "the best hackers on the planet," and claims that none of those "prodigies" will be found working with the FBI, writing:

Apple Refuses To Unlock Terrorist's iPhone For The Government — See Why They Won't Comply With The 'Dangerous' Court Order!

no title

Apple isn't on the best terms with Uncle Sam right now!

The tech company said it would oppose and challenge a federal court order to help the FBI unlock an iPhone used by one of the terrorists behind the San Bernardino mass shooting last December.

On Tuesday, Federal District Court Judge Sheri Pym ordered Apple to bypass the security on an iPhone 5 operated by Syed Rizwan Farook — who was killed by the police with his wife after murdering 14 of his co-workers at a holiday party.

In hopes of obtaining more evidence in the investigation, the Judge ordered the company to create special software that would basically act as a skeleton key to unlock the phone — but Apple refused!

Hours later, Apple exec Tim Cook released a statement saying that the company would not comply with the order because the technology would be "too dangerous to create."

The FBI says its experts have failed to access the data on Farook's iPhone, and are at risk of losing the data forever after repeated unsuccessful attempts to enter the password — which means that only Apple is able to get around its security features.

But according to Cook, what the government is asking the company to do "has implications far beyond the legal case at hand." He wrote:

"The F.B.I. may use different words to describe this tool, but make no mistake: Building a version of iOS that bypasses security in this way would undeniably create a back door. And while the government may argue that its use would be limited to this case, there is no way to guarantee such control."

Back in 2014, Apple and Google announced they tightened up their software with "full disk" encryption — which means their security was so beefed up, they could no longer unlock their own products!

But this re-engineering created a problem for law enforcement authorities, who say the new encryption hinders them from preventing and solving crime.

While police and prosecutors believe that creating a master key will be extremely useful when investigating crimes, Cook says that creating a "back door" to bypass their security is:

"Something we simply do not have, and something we consider too dangerous to create."

The tech company's next step will likely be to file an appeal — and since the legal issues here are complicated, this case could go all the way up to the Supreme Court.

Well this could end badly for everyone involved…

News agencies and police alike continue to try to piece together the facts behind the shooting in San Bernardino on Wednesday that left 14 dead and 21 wounded, but there may have just been a major mistake that could delay the investigation.

The landlord of slain suspects Syed Rizwan Farook, 28, and Tashfeen Malik, 27, let camera crews into their Redlands home on live television Friday morning… without permission from authorities!

San Bernardino Shooting Suspects Had 4,600 Bullets & 12 Pipe Bombs Stockpiled When They Died

Filed under: Sad SadViolenceScary!Viral: News

no title

The attack at a San Bernardino office party is already one of the worst mass shootings in American history, but it turns out things could have been even worse.

The husband and wife suspects who were gunned down in their SUV after fleeing the Inland Regional Center on Wednesday had more weaponry than you could possibly imagine.

After the SBPD shot and killed Syed Rizwan Farook, 28, and Tashfeen Malik, 27, they discovered over 1,600 rounds of ammo in their vehicle.

In addition to that unimaginably high number, police found 3,000 more bullets in their home outside of Redlands, as well as 12 home made pipe bombs.

We already knew that three bombs attached to each other were found at the IRC, but apparently the detonator was also located in the SUV — luckily, it failed to trigger, most likely due to distance.

The married assailants killed 14 people, injured another 21, and are said to have ties with suspected terrorists, but we're just thankful the amount of casualties wasn't higher.

Our thoughts continue to be with everyone affected by the murders.
