San Bernardino DA Says Seized iPhone May Hold ‘Dormant Cyber Pathogen’

Ars Technica:

“The iPhone is a county owned telephone that may have connected to the San Bernardino County computer network. The seized iPhone may contain evidence that can only be found on the seized phone that it was used as a weapon to introduce a lying dormant cyber pathogen that endangers San Bernardino’s infrastructure,” according to a court filing (PDF) by Michael Ramos, the San Bernardino County district attorney.

Sounds to me like Ramos has watched Skyfall too many times.
