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.

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.
