John Mcafee Offers to Decrypt San Bernardino iPhone, Prevent the 'End of America'

Posted by · 18510 views · Translate

John Mcafee is offering to decrypt the San Bernardino shooter's iPhone free of charge so that Apple isn't forced to build a back door into its devices. He made the offer to the FBI in an open letter published by TechInsider.

Mcafee notes that the FBI is unable to decrypt the phone because it won't hire the most capable hackers.

"The FBI will not hire anyone with a 24-inch purple mohawk, 10-gauge ear piercings, and a tattooed face who demands to smoke weed while working and won't work for less than a half-million dollars a year."

Mcafee says that his team of hackers will be able to access the device given some time and he offers to do it for free so that Apple isn't forced to. Something he believes would be the "beginning of the end of the US as a world power."

So here is my offer to the FBI. I will, free of charge, decrypt the information on the San Bernardino phone, with my team. We will primarily use social engineering, and it will take us three weeks. If you accept my offer, then you will not need to ask Apple to place a back door in its product, which will be the beginning of the end of America.

Apple is only worried about losing their biggest growing market which is China. If they make a back door, Apple will not be trusted brand anymore. Government officials are not allowed to use the brand if I remember correctly. This is the single and only reason for Apple strongly and OPENLY going against the USA government.

FBI should use MFC DONGLE it reads code from IPHONES without wiping any info.Its easy and simple

Easy, - they want front door entry. Take the damn phone, do your thing and set the code to 0000 and CHARGE 500.000$ for this 'upon search warrant' service. Give that away for a good cause close to your hearts ! The FBI gets access, and will think twice to ask for hacks against petty criminals etc due to the fee they'd need to fork out. No one gets a backdoor, issue solved and Apple looks good all around !
