Zdziarski's Backdoor: A Roundup of Articles

Your rating: None (2 votes)

About a week ago, security researcher Jonathan Zdziarski revealed what apparently is a number of "backdoors" to iOS. These allow access to data on even encrypted devices, as long as a pairing record is available from a trusted source (not trivial). Although Jonathan took pains to qualify the announcement, several reports have seemed to exaggerate the issue.

In response, Jonathan has compiled a list of more reputable tech articles on the topic. I've reprinted the list below.
