Israeli Firm Helping FBI To Open Encrypted iPhone

This is just a hunch but, if this is in fact the company helping the FBI crack that encrypted iPhone, I have a feeling Apple is going to file a lawsuit against them soon.

Israel's Cellebrite, a provider of mobile forensic software, is helping the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation's attempt to unlock an iPhone used by one of the San Bernardino, California shooters, the Yedioth Ahronoth newspaper reported on Wednesday. If Cellebrite succeeds, then the FBI will no longer need the help of Apple Inc, the Israeli daily said, citing unnamed industry sources. Cellebrite officials declined to comment on the matter.
