The FBI and the US government previously refused to say how much the FBI had paid to hack the San Bernardino iPhone.
Now it looks like a US senator has revealed how much was paid for the hack and it was apparently $900,000.
The $900,000 sum that was paid for the hack was revealed by senator Dianne Feinstein, you can see what she had to say below.
“I was so struck when San Bernardino happened and you made overtures to allow that device to be opened, and then the FBI had to spend $900,000 to hack it open,” Feinstein said. “And as I subsequently learned of some of the reason for it, there were good reasons to get into that device.”
The FBI previously revealed that they paid less than $1 million for the hack although they did not give an exact amount.
