FBI won't disclose iPhone hack details to Apple

The FBI said it would not disclose details of its hack of an iPhone used by one of the San Bernardino shooters because it did not have the details from the outside partyThe FBI said Wednesday it would not disclose details of its hack of an iPhone used by one of the shooters in last year’s San Bernardino killing spree. The federal law enforcement agency, which waged a court battle to compel Apple to help unlock the device, said the reason for its decision was a technical one: it did not have the details from the outside party. “The FBI purchased the method from an outside party so that we could unlock the San Bernardino device,” said a statement from Amy Hess, the FBI’s executive assistant director for science and technology.
