John McAfee in an interview on national television revealed how you can hack any iPhone or computer in just 30 minutes. He explains that the FBI knows how to do this and the law enforcement agency is misleading the public by asking for a universal key to access more devices in future cases.
Update: McAfee made these statements in 2016. However, it is important to know the position of the late businessman on how to hack any device.
He claimed that unlocking the iPhone involved in the San Bernardino shooting is a “trivial” exercise and should only take the FBI 30 minutes. John McAfee was a cybersecurity pioneer, the maker of McAfee’s antivirus, a candidate for President of the United States, and much more.
He says that the FBI already knows how to unlock the iPhone and if it doesn’t then the American people are in deep trouble. In a statement, the Libertarian Party presidential candidate said the FBI is misleading people by forcing Apple to create a backdoor in iOS security for the purpose of unlocking the iPhone 5c used in the shooting.
In the video shared, McAfee said that the law enforcement agency is misleading the public by asking for a universal key to access more devices in future cases.
He said that he is going to tell the world exactly how to do it in the interview. “Now I’m probably going to lose my admission into the world’s hacker community, however I’m going to say it.” He then argued that a combination of a software and hardware engineer should do the “trick”. While the hardware engineer disassembles the iPhone and runs a disassembler, the software engineer will scan the code to unlock the keyboard.
The FBI should stop pretending as if people are “idiots,” McAfee says “anyone can do it.” Previously, in an op-ed, McAfee wrote that he is ready to offer his services to the FBI to prevent Apple from installing a backdoor. Published by WildWestDominio, a news and information agency.
