Apple: We Will Fight FBI Demand to Crack iPhone Passcode

Joseph Cox at Motherboard wrote:On Tuesday, a federal judge ordered Apple to assist the FBI in brute-forcing the passcode to an encrypted iPhone of one of the San Bernardino shooters.

Tim Cook, Apple's CEO, vehemently responded to the order late on Tuesday, saying that the demand “would undermine the very freedoms and liberty our government is meant to protect.” He wrote his company would be fighting the order, and that the order itself sets the stage for much wider use of back-doors.  “The United States government has demanded that Apple take an unprecedented step which threatens the security of our customers. We oppose this order, which has implications far beyond the legal case at hand,” the statement starts.
