FBI expert calls Apple “jerks” over encryption

Ars Technica’s Jon Brodkin:

“At what point is it just trying to one-up things and at what point is it to thwart law enforcement?” FBI forensic expert Stephen Flatley said yesterday while speaking at the International Conference on Cyber Security in Manhattan, according to a report by Motherboard. “Apple is pretty good at evil genius stuff.”

Flatley also used the word “jerks” to describe Apple and its approach to iPhone security, according to Motherboard.

I guess it’s like the old saying goes: one person’s “evil genius” is another’s “champion of personal privacy.”
