apple claims jailbroken iphone could be threat to national secuity

apple informed the US copyright office that jailbreaking an iphone (or modifying the software to get around copyright control features that prohibit using competitor applications) could potentially pose a threat to national security. According to apple “a local or international hacker could potentially initiate commands (such as a denial of service attack) that could crash the tower software, rendering the tower entirely inoperable to process calls or transmit data,” Apple wrote the government. “Taking control of the BBP software would be much the equivalent of getting inside the firewall of a corporate computer — to potentially catastrophic result.” An EFF (http://www.eff.org/) attorney states this is more bull than truth.
