Intelligence agency stumped - or is it?Was the FBI being a bit disingenuous in its dispute with Apple over the San Bernardino shootings? A Cambridge University security researcher suggests that they could have used equipment costing less than $100 to bypass the PIN code security measures on the terrorist’s iPhone 5c.

It seems improbable that its team of crack forensic experts could not achieve what a single researcher managed to do by himself, fairly quickly and without too much difficulty.

It is now being suggested that the FBI was hoping to set a precedent for tech companies’ future cooperation with law enforcement agencies.
