Senator Reveals FBI paid $900,000 to Hack the San Bernardino iPhone and Received Nothing in Return

During last week’s questioning of FBI Director James Comey, California Senator Dianne Feinstein inadvertently revealed the amount the agency paid to hack into a terrorist’s iPhone, the Associated Press reports at http://cnb.cx/2qTzBpB. The money was paid to break into the locked iPhone of a gunman in the San Bernardino, California, shootings. In return, the FBI received … nothing.

Even though the company the FBI hired was able to break into the phone and read its contents, nothing incriminating was found.

Details are available at http://cnb.cx/2qTzBpB.

I wrote about the attempt to break into the iPhone several times last year. See my previous articles by starting at: https://duckduckgo.com/?q=site%3Aprivacyblog.com+fby+iphone&t=h_&ia=web.
