FBI paid hackers who cracked the San Bernardino iPhone, report says

If you're the FBI, and Apple refuses to assist you, how do you crack open a locked iPhone? Apparently, the same way as everyone else (provided you have sufficient funds): You pay professional hackers to do it.  According to a report by theWashington Post, published Tuesday, the agency managed to crack open the iPhone 5C that was used by San Bernardino gunman Syed Farook by paying a one-time fee to an unnamed group of hackers.  SEE ALSO: FBI ‘pretty confident’ iPhone hack only works on iPhone 5C with iOS 9 The hackers defeated the device's security by using a previously undiscovered security flaw in the iPhone's software. This flaw was then used to create a hardware device that helped open the iPhone without triggering the security feature that erases all of its data after too many unsuccessful login attempts.  While the hackers aren't identified in the report, people familiar with the matter told the Washington Post it was not the Israeli firm Cellebrite, as previous reports have claimed.  Furthermore, at least one of the hackers involved is considered to be a "gray hat," a somewhat vague term which denominates hackers who tread the fine line between ethical and unethical hacking.   The vulnerability used to crack open the iPhone 5C probably works only on that model, and only if it's running the iOS 9 version of Apple's mobile platform, making it a fairly limited security issue for users.  While that solves FBI's problem in this case, the question remains: Should the agency now publicly disclose the nature of the security flaw used to hack into the iPhone? According to FBI Director James Comey, who addressed the issue in a speech on Encryption and Surveillance at Kenyon College last Wednesday, the agency is "considering" it.  “It’s an interesting conversation because, we tell Apple, they fix it and then we’re back where we started from,” he said.

Hacker’s Guide to Torrenting

Hacker’s Guide to Torrenting


ABOUT THE BOOK So ye wish to sail the digital seas, plundering her infinite horizon for a booty of shared knowledge and entertainment. Well my aspiring pirate, like all quests for fortune, you’ll need the right tools and a proper treasure map. The proceeding is that proper map, both to the treasure and tools with which to excavate it. “Torrenting” is the practice of using torrents to compile bits of information from peers who share pieces of one or more files. It is a general term given to the second generation of Peer-to-Peer sharing technology, a progression from earlier applications such as Limewire and Morpheus. Broken down, the transaction process is comprised of “swarming” and “tracking”. The bits of available data, together, form a sort of “swarm” which is drawn upon to download files. Facilitating that swarming process, are web sites with specific servers that help swarm users locate one another. These webservers are typically referred to as “trackers”. This complex system of peer-to-peer transacting is commonly utilized for downloading movies, music, and software. MEET THE AUTHOR Aaron sports not only a high school diploma, but 10+ years of hands-on experience in music journalism. His interests include music, sports, fiction, and current events. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK 1. Torrent Clients In order to start downloading data via torrents, you first need a torrent client. Many torrent clients are available (for free) and can be found with a simple search. Some of the more popular clients include uTorrent, BitTorrent, and even Kazaa (which began as a more straight-up torrent client but now offers a more commercialized interface). Torrent clients all serve one major purpose and that is the gathering of swarm data via the downloaded text (torrent) file. How you choose your preferred client depends entirely on your experience level and the interface each provides. While sufficient steps to ensure safe sailing will be required (we’ll touch on thos
