Security researcher Jonathan Zdziarski has documented that Apple has deliberately backdoored every single iOS device, allowing encryption to be bypassed and sensitive personal or business data to be accessed. Here's a link to the PDF of a slide presentation that he gave at the ongoing Hackers on Planet Earth conference in New York. The slide photo I've attached gives an overview of the seriousness of the problem: http://www.zdziarski.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/07/iOS_Backdoors_Attack_Points_Surveillance_Mechanisms.pdf

I just bought a ticket to hear journalist Glenn Greenwald speak in Amsterdam about his new book, No Place to Hide: Edward Snowden, the NSA, and the U.S. Surveillance State. The event, which is hosted by the John Adams Institute, is scheduled for Tuesday, 20 May at 8PM.
