article imageiOS 'back doors' found by forensic scientist

By Walter McDaniel     Jul 22, 2014 in Technology
Forensic scientist Jonathan Zdziarski has posted evidence related to iOS security. His presentation talks about your rights and how some "back door" practices are infringing upon them.
All the vulnerabilities that he found in iOS are briefly talked about in a simple slide presentation here. Both security on the hardware/software end and your rights when using such a device are a part of the presentation.
Zdziarski talked at length about a few things he found including a number of undocumented high-value forensic services running on every iOS device
as well as suspicious design omissions in iOS that make collection easier
in an article with ZD Net. Information on this also comes from a talk he gave at Hackers On Planet Earth. On that same note the information has fostered discussion on hundreds of technology sites.
He additionally noted that the framework could give access to information that should never come off the device unless users consent. From his report valuable information such as passwords and financial data could be intercepted.
Earlier in the year the NSA also allegedly intercepted multiple servers which had spying programs as well. Once again Chinese firms reportedly planted code in the servers which could be used to intercept data.
As for the Chinese government itself they are now investigating businesses such as Symantec due to these claims. Microsoft has also weighed in on the debate in one of many cases they have brought up with Chinese authorities.
