ALERT: San Bernardino Killers May Have Hidden Terrifying Weapon Inside Phone
The iPhone seized from the San Bernardino killers may possibly have been used to upload a “dormant cyber pathogen” with the potential to severely damage the infrastructure of San Bernardino County, if not the whole state of California and the entire country.
This shocking revelation was revealed in a court briefing filed earlier this week by the San Bernardino District Attorney.
“The iPhone is a county owned telephone that may have connected to the San Bernardino County computer network,” the brief read, according to Ars Technica.
Killer Syed Farook reportedly received the iPhone when he started working as an environmental health specialist for the San Bernardino County Department of Public Health five years ago.
“The seized iPhone may contain evidence that can only be found on the seized phone that it was used as a weapon to introduce a lying dormant cyber pathogen that endangers San Bernardino’s infrastructure,” the brief continued.
Apparently, prosecutors believe that Farook and his wife, Tashfeen Malik, used the iPhone to upload a malicious but still dormant cyber virus to the county’s online Web portal — and that locating this virus before it goes into effect requires accessing whatever lies in the phone.
