Also iPhone case New York lapses




Let the public prosecutor at the court in New York know that the government no longer needs Apple’s help to decrypt the iPhone 5s from a drug dealer. According to a spokesperson has an anonymous party supplied the correct code to the authorities.

The US Department of Justice makes it through a short letter know that it withdraws the application for Apple’s help. Previously, authorities still consider that they could only gain access with the help of Apple to the data on the smartphone. According to sources of The Wall Street Journal would have supplied the drug dealer in question itself the unlock code for your phone.

The case of the phone of the New York drug dealer began even before going around the iPhone San Bernadino-shooter. At its core is the same argument used to convince the judge that Apple should contribute to the cause. The prosecution argues namely that the company is required under the All Writs Act from the 18th century to provide its assistance. In the text states that courts are free to require assistance from third parties as long as this is in the service of law enforcement.

The fact that the prosecutor applications now dropped means that the second time in a short time fails setting a precedent. Earlier, in late March, the FBI announced that the case against Apple for its assistance in the San Bernadino case also dropped. The FBI could not access the iPhone 5c of the shooter and suggested that Apple needed help. The case was prematurely terminated because the FBI assistance received from third parties and Apple no longer needed. The spokesman for the Justice Department indicated Friday that “never has been a precedent ‘in this case. That requires , among other Reuters.

Apple and other big tech companies are fiercely opposed to implementing a backdoor for authorities to use in such investigations. If Apple rewrites its source to open one device, for example, the FBI or the New York prosecutor, then the same source code by which other parties or used for numerous other smartphones decrypt worldwide with ease. Apple has repeatedly promised tooth and nail to defend himself in courtrooms.
