The FBI is sending out court orders to get Apple to put in back doors in an iPhone....
Hillary Clinton is being investigated by the FBI for her "sensitive email" issue....
And the FBI arrests a teenager for hacking into senior CIA & FBI officials emails....
Lets take a quick look at these events, and lets all realize how much we are being taken for fools.
First off, the FBI does not need Apple to get into the insides of an iPhone. John McAffee is even offering to do it for free. Thanks John. In fact, I will offer to do it for free too, great publicity.
No worries since the FBI will not let anyone try to get into that iPhone. This case is about the government putting in place the mechanisms for killing privacy in general. So don't be fooled by their request looking all normal because they need Apple to get into a terrorists phone. Whatever Apple could do, the United States Government can do, or get done.
But lets take a look at the MAJOR security issue around the Hillary Clinton and CIA/FBI email scandal.
Certainly we should be concerned that a senior government official who is representing "the people" and is supposed to be smart would expose sensitive information on her personal email system.
However, something much worst is not being discussed by the media.
How can someone, anyone, take top secret documents from a high security ecosystem and bring it into a less secure ecosystem (like Hillary's email server).
Someone should be getting fired, and charged with some form of criminal negligence.
But WAIT ! It gets worst.
This week, HackerNews reported that a 16 year old hacker was arrested for breaking into emails of both the CIA and the FBI.
Take a look at these details (taken from the article):
Like corporate America, these senior executives are the weakest link, and will significantly and negatively impact security.
