    Tools Leaked Online

    If you cast your mind back to when Apple refused to unlock an iPhone 5c for the authorities following the San Bernardino incident last year, the company made the argument that if it created a tool for opening up an encrypted iPhone, then it would create the potential for that tool to then fall into the wrong hands and ultimately make iPhone encryption obsolete.

    The FBI didn’t agree with this and went ahead and found someone else to do the hacking – Israeli firm Cellebrite, and was rumored to be paid over $1 million to do so, and after a huge outcry over it, neither the FBI would release the info nor the firm of course. -- But never say never to hackers, so in turn the company itself has been hacked and now most of their high-end tools they sell to people like the FBI have been leaked online for all to enjoy for free.
    I guess they never learned rule #1 about being 'paid-for-hacking' company, if you are one, you NEVER ever have anything to do with the internet, no servers, no website, no emails, no nothing, you can't get hacked if you are not visible at all to the world out there!
