The Whole Murder Thing, I'm Guessing
  • That’s the point of his bad news smokescreen. There was such turbulence in the media throughout his entire presidency that the majority of the real damage he has done was only noticed by people who actively seek out information. It’s a brilliant way to obfuscate his agenda from the eyes of the passively informed.

  • Where’s the benefit? Apple would be putting their business model at stake to support this. They don’t collect or sell user data, so they’re not gaining any equity. What’s their motive to breach their customer agreement and commit perjury in front of Congress?

  • You claimed that Apple intentionally places vulnerabilities in updates to allow governmental access, right?

    They’ve repeatedly claimed in court that they do not have access to on-device data or transmissions, as stated in their legal privacy policy. If they created a vulnerability, then they could exploit it, making the above claims both perjury and breach of contract.

    Please clarify if I misunderstood your comment.

  • It’s fine if it happens. Balooning is just a chemical breakdown of the battery. It won’t explode. Disconnecting the battery while keeping the device connected to power runs a high risk of shorting, potentially causing component damage.

  • I’m not for trusting corporations either, but you don’t have a source, only theories.

    Snowden is pretty much the authority on NSA vulnerabilities, and he hasn’t released any proof that Apple has a backdoor on their devices. The only thing he’s demonstrated is how the NSA has used MITM on third-party push notifications, which Apple has since encrypted and relayed to obfuscate.

    If you have a source, I’m down to read it. Otherwise, you’re just speculating.

  • Cellebrite uses Lightning/USB-C port access to bypass passcode security. Once iPhone is powered off, the Secure Enclave will deny port access until the passcode is entered. It’s not impossible, but it’ll certainly take far longer than if they keep the iPhone charging while they wait for an exploit.

  • They do not have access to data on customer devices. Therefore, they cannot be compelled to provide it. Apple repeatedly challenges and wins cases against the government’s request for a backdoor to their devices.

    They can and will provide iCloud data in response to a warrant.

  • Leaked Docs Show What Phones Cellebrite Can (and Can’t) Unlock
  • Apple’s legal policy is very clear. They do not have access to data on customer devices, and therefore cannot provide said data to law enforcement or government officials.

    They’ve fought the backdoor request in court 11 times and won. They are not mandated to comply by law if they themselves do not have access.

    They can and will provide iCloud data in response to a warrant.

  • I see your point. The attacker would need to be far more savvy than police.

    They’d need to keep it charged to prevent powering off and activating the connection access denial of the Secure Enclave, while keeping the iPhone in a Mylar bag to prevent any nearby iOS devices from relaying the Find My remote erase request.

    With enough time, a vulnerability may be found for that version of iOS.

  • Leaked Docs Show What Phones Cellebrite Can (and Can’t) Unlock
  • That’s simply not true. The chart clearly states that Cellebrite cannot break encryption on any iPhone that can run the current version of iOS. That includes any iPhone made in the last six years.

    What this illustrates is the importance keeping your phone’s software updated for maximum security. New hardware is not necessary.

  • I’ve read about the NSA exploiting third-party push notification systems from Snowden. I’ve only read the opposite of your claim about Apple providing a backdoor for the government. Do you have a source so I can read more about it?

    apnews.com Supreme Court, siding with Starbucks, makes it harder for NLRB to win court orders in labor disputes

    The Supreme Court has made it harder for the federal government to win court orders when it suspects a company of interfering in unionization campaigns in a case that stemmed from a labor dispute with Starbucks.

    Supreme Court, siding with Starbucks, makes it harder for NLRB to win court orders in labor disputes

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court on Thursday made it harder for the federal government to win court orders when it suspects a company of interfering in unionization campaigns in a case that stemmed from a labor dispute with Starbucks.

    The justices tightened the standards for when a federal court should issue an order to protect the jobs of workers during a union organizing campaign.

    The court rejected a rule that some courts had applied to orders sought by the National Labor Relations Board in favor of a higher threshold, sought by Starbucks, that must be met in most other fights over court orders, or injunctions.

    The NLRB had argued that the National Labor Relations Act, the law that governs the agency, has for more than 75 years allowed courts to grant temporary injunctions if they find requests “just and proper.” The agency said the law doesn’t require it to prove other factors and was intended to limit the role of the courts.

    The case began in February 2022, when Starbucks fired seven workers who were trying to unionize their Tennessee store. The NLRB obtained a court order forcing the company to rehire the workers while the case wound its way through the agency’s administrative proceedings. Such proceedings can take up to two years.

    Trump trial moves toward end: 5 takeaways on the closing arguments

    The prosecution contends the reimbursements were falsely classified as legal expenses to conceal their true nature — part of a hush-money deal with Daniels. Prosecutors also say this was done to affect the election’s outcome, not merely to save Trump personal embarrassment, and therefore amounts to election interference.

    Trump’s team argues the money paid to Cohen, who in the past said he would take a bullet for Trump but has also become an aggressive critic of the former president, was indeed for legal services.

    Top UN court demands Israel halt military operations in Rafah

    Israel must immediately halt its military operations in the area of Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip, the United Nations top court ruled on Friday.

    The ruling by the International Court of Justice marks a major condemnation of how Israel is conducting its war against Hamas in Gaza, but also leaves open whether the ruling can be enforced.

    apnews.com US paused bomb shipment to Israel to signal concerns over Rafah invasion, official says

    The shipment was supposed to consist of 1,800 2,000-pound bombs and 1,700 500-pound bombs, according to the official, with the focus of U.S. concern being the larger explosives and how they could be used in a dense urban setting.

    US paused bomb shipment to Israel to signal concerns over Rafah invasion, official says

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. paused a shipment of bombs to Israel last week over concerns that Israel was approaching a decision on launching a full-scale assault on the southern Gaza city of Rafah against the wishes of the U.S., a senior administration official said Tuesday.

    Biden’s administration in April began reviewing future transfers of military assistance as Netanyahu’s government appeared to move closer toward an invasion of Rafah, despite months of opposition from the White House. The official said the decision to pause the shipment was made last week and no final decision had been made yet on whether to proceed with the shipment at a later date.

    U.S. put a hold on an ammunition shipment to Israel

    The Biden administration last week put a hold on a shipment of U.S.-made ammunition to Israel, two Israeli officials told Axios.

    Why it matters: It is the first time since the Oct. 7 attack that the U.S. has stopped a weapons shipment intended for the Israeli military. The incident raised serious concerns inside the Israeli government and sent officials scrambling to understand why the shipment was held, Israeli officials said.

    President Biden is facing sharp criticism among Americans who oppose his support of Israel. The administration in February asked Israel to provide assurances that U.S.-made weapons were being used by Israel Defense Forces in Gaza in accordance with international law. Israel provided a signed letter of assurances in March.
