That would be badass.
McAfee is a nutjob...
I'll fuck Hackers era Angelina Jolie before he gets access to Iphone inside info...let alone attempts to hack it.
I wonder how many attempts they have made to open that phone?
Are they down to their last password attempt on it?
That would be funny if they handed it to McAfffee, and he was able to hack it.
He's a shady fella who enjoys guns and booze a bit too much. His experience in Belize from 2012 makes for some interesting reading, they're corrupt and he's nuts.
It would be more badass if they handed him the phone and he just entered a random string of numbers thus making the phone erase all information on the inside. after his failure he then hands the phone back to them and says "well, I tried. I'll be at the bar if anybody needs me".
He's crazy/high enough to do something like that....but they would try to assassinate him again....
Great American Hero.. Finally a presidential candidate who knows what's up. Team McAfee all the way.
I highly doubt the terrorists who took care to destroy hard drives/ phones left any info on a county issued iphone
i would vote for him but his presidential website goes to a 404
I don't quite understand the problem they're having. The key isn't to break into the OS. The key is to gain access to the info on it without the OS. In the server world, that would mean gaining access to the hard drives. Ylu use another system to read the drives.
Why can't they access the memory on the phone by taking it apart and reading it from another device? The info is there. No need to boot IOS to access it.
EDIT: I didn't realize that the phones now have encryption turned on automatically. The government is hosed. Even if Apple helps, I don't think they can do anything either.
The phone generates a hardware ID tied to the password....to crack said "harddrive" would take up to 6 years bruteforcing it. You can't just pull the storage medium & plug it in somewhere else.
This is great if you have never seen it
They should get Techno Beaver on the case.
Yeah, I realized that. Too bad it didn't have a print scanner. They could have just used the corpse to open it.
