Apple iPhone 3GS Jailbreak: Dealers and Terrorist Support
Most people wouldn’t dream of supporting terrorism, but apparently some unknowingly do according to Apple as Wired reports that Apple claims jailbroken iPhones can be used to attack and disable mobile towers.
Furthermore jailbroken iPhones also help drug dealers to escape the reach of the law. Apple wants iPhone users to believe that iPhone hackers could potentially launch “cyber attacks” against wireless networks.
Of course this is all part of the battle by Apple to get iPhone users to stop jailbreaking their iPhone and as the present version of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 states…“no person shall circumvent a technological measure that effectively controls access to a work protected under this title,” which basically means if you jailbreak the iPhone you are breaking the law.
Apple now claims that jailbreaking gives access to the baseband code and with some clever hacking; cyber terrorists could send commands to a mobile tower and render it useless.
