AFP Recommends A Mac

Another email reveals that the AFP was frustrated at being unable to successfully use a backdoor to Mac OSX.

“Our testing of the Mac OSX backdoor has failed continuously on the different hardware and OS versions we have attempted,” Brett Gray, a member of the AFP’s data technical field team, told Hacking Team in an email.”

We have tested the Win 64-bit version, and this appears to function correctly. We are testing the Blackberry now and will let you know the results.

“We will not contemplate purchasing the Mac OSX backdoor until we have physically tested a working system.”

Get a Mac.
