Unlocking the iPhone: we’ve been here before

Shaun Nichols, for The Register, reports on yet another tool for unlocking the iPhone: FYI: There’s a cop tool called GrayKey that force unlocks iPhones. Let’s hope it doesn’t fall into the wrong hands!

The article summarizes on by Thomas Reed, for Malwarebytes: GrayKey iPhone unlocker poses serious security concerns.

While the company does seem to be careful about to whom it sells the device, Thomas makes a number of disquieting points about the implications of this tool.
