[/.]Leaked Memo Says Apple Provides Backdoor To Governments  

post #1 of 29

Quote:
"In a tweet early this morning, cybersecurity researcher Christopher Soghoian pointed to an internal memo of India's Military Intelligence that has been liberated by hackers and posted on the Net. The memo suggests that, "in exchange for the Indian market presence" mobile device manufacturers, including RIM, Nokia, and Apple (collectively defined in the document as "RINOA") have agreed to provide backdoor access on their devices. The Indian government then "utilized backdoors provided by RINOA" to intercept internal emails of the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission, a U.S. government body with a mandate to monitor, investigate and report to Congress on 'the national security implications of the bilateral trade and economic relationship' between the U.S. and China. Manan Kakkar, an Indian blogger for ZDNet, has also picked up the story and writes that it may be the fruits of an earlier hack of Symantec. If Apple is providing governments with a backdoor to iOS, can we assume that they have also done so with Mac OS X?"

Headline is sensationalist and biased toward Apple, when it's clear they're not the only ones doing it.

If this is verified, could Treason charges possibly arise from it? It is/was knowingly aiding espionage against the United States Government...

It says RIM, Nokia, and Apple, not just Apple. The same thing happened to RIM in several countries last year, being threated of ban from the country of provide acces to Blackberry's email content ("national security" claim again).

Blackberrys are using crypted method with server out of these countries, so they are harder to "intercept" and read by authorities.

Apple is the only American headquartered company. RIM is Canada based and Nokia is Finland based.

So you post Apple in the title to encourage more Apple hate yet, the article states that Apple is one one of the several companies allegedly a part of the "backdoor."
