A recent, trending topic is the battle between Apple and the FBI over an iPhone recovered from the investigation of the San Bernardino massacre last December. The FBI asked Apple to help break into the phone and Apple refused. Then the FBI got a court order for Apple to create a forensics tool and Apple is in the midst of fighting the order.
As most people know, Apple is known for their guarantee of user privacy. The Feds are accusing the firm of selecting their “public brand marketing strategy” over a terrorism investigation. What a lot of people do not know is that creating this tool would be extremely dangerous because it would result in this hacking tool being made public, which means usable by any law enforcement, foreign governments and criminal organizations. This is the reason why Apple is fighting.
