Police can coerce iPhone Passwords from Accused, if Needed- Rules Florida Court of Appeals
In an intriguing case involving the Florida State and Aron Stahl, a Florida resident, the judge of the Florida Court of Appeals recently passed the motion that the police can coerce the password of the iPhone from the accused if needed, in order to verify the contents of the same for evidence. The police had earlier filed charges against Aron Stahl for taking promiscuous pictures of a woman shopper in a store on his iPhone. The store CCTV had recorded the happenings. But the police was unable to see the contents of the phone as it was locked and Aron had declined to give the password or unlock the phone. The court overruled the trial court verdict and said that the popular Fifth Amendment cannot be used to protect the accused in deliberately holding passcode as a significant breach of evidence. The court ruling closely trails after the battle between Apple and the FBI, when the Apple Company denied a court order to unlock the iPhone of the San Bernardino shooter.
Hacking CCTV Cameras, Cars and Computers, Easy…..Says Ethical Hacker
Jamie Woodruff, Europe’s No1 ethical hacker, says how easy it is for him to hack a CCTV camera and know all about people who are walking in and out of your company and even gate crash a conference. Speaking at the Global Summit of Women Speakers of Parliament, the 23 year old, gave a live demo of hacking a CCTV and how easy it is to control the CCTV from your end once hacked.

Speaking to the young people at the conference, Jamie, went on to say how he beat his autism, dyslexia and dyspraxia by battling the many challenges he faced and how he won all it all by turning eachchallenge into a viable opportunity- even doing his university degree in computer science at Bangor University after having won a full- time scholarship in a hackathon contest. At the conference, he demonstrated a couple of devices, one that he had built over a weekend called the ‘Secret’ that could monitor keywords. The other device was one that could unlock any car with a keyless entry.
