Apple Right to Oppose Order to Unlock iPhone

WASHINGTON - The FBI has obtained an order, in connection with the San Bernardino attacks, which would require Apple to produce malware for the FBI that the agency would use to hack into an iPhone that Apple built. The malware, which does not exist today, would disable a feature on the phone that makes it difficult for people who don’t know the iPhone’s password to guess the password repeatedly, until eventually the password is guessed and the phone is unlocked.
