All the recent noise about ‘back door’ holes in Apple’s iOS are attributed to the obvious. Jason D. O’Grady:
Apple today addressed some of his concerns with a new knowledgebase article called iOS: About diagnostic capabilities. In it Apple refers to the services identified by Zdziarski (including “pcapd,” “file_relay,” and “house_arrest”) as “diagnostic capabilities to help enterprise IT departments, developers, and AppleCare troubleshoot issues.”
Inocuous? Or, not? Tin foil hat and conspiracy theorists won’t let this go.
