Hacker Teaches iPhone Forensics To Police

Ponca City, We love you writes “The Mercury News reports that former hacker Jonathan Zdziarski has been tapped by law-enforcement agencies nationwide to teach them just how much information is stored in iPhones – and how to get it. ‘These devices are people’s companions today,’ says Zdziarski. ‘They’re not mobile phones anymore. They organize people’s lives. And if you’re doing something criminal, something about it is probably going to go through that phone.’ For example, every time an iPhone user closes out of the built-in mapping application, the phone snaps a screenshot and stores it. Savvy law-enforcement agents armed with search warrants can use those snapshots to see if a suspect is lying about whereabouts during a crime.”
