21 Mar Atlanta Tech Firm Claims to Offer iPhone Password Cracking Service
As reported by Forbes, a Georgia-based firm called Grayshift recently made a bold claim that they have been offering an iPhone passcode-cracking service to police departments and law enforcement divisions.
The little-known company is also selling an iPhone unlocker tool called GrayKey that costs around $15,000 and can unlock 300 devices. Grayshift says that their device is able to break into iPhones, even the ones running iOS 11.
Grayshift is also said to be offering a more expensive standalone unit which costs $30,000, but can unlock an unlimited number of phones. Privacy and security experts have expressed their concerns about the GrayKey, since it will make iPhone cracking relatively cheaper. Law enforcement typically spend around $1500 to unlock a single device, with the cost going up as high as $1 million in the case of the San Bernardino shooter.
