Apple screenshots: Losing privacy with iPhone

ABA tells us why one law firm switched to BlackBerrys: security issues and iPhone screenshots of your data.

Debra Cassens Weiss writes (excerpt):
Apple says its iPhone 3GS has hardware encryption, but it is still possible to gain access, they write, citing the work of data forensics expert Jonathan Zdziarski. He found a way to “jailbreak” the phone by “sucking a disk image from an encrypted drive to a destination drive,” the Law Practice Magazine article says. He has also figured out a way to replace a user’s unlock code to gain access to the phone’s contents.
