Bruce Schneier – the FBI and the Farook iPhone

You might call this a postscript to a coda.

Schneier refers to the title of his article for the Washington Post as clickbait, Your iPhone just got less secure. Blame the FBI. However, the subtitle summarizes its tone pretty well.

When Johns Hopkins discovered a different security flaw, it notified Apple so the problem could be fixed. The FBI is keeping its newly found breach a secret from everyone.

Schneier himself comments:

The FBI did the right thing by using an existing vulnerability rather than forcing Apple to create a new one, but it should be disclosed to Apple and patched immediately.
