- The Phone Hackers at Cellebrite Have Had Their Firmware Leaked Online. From Motherboard.
Cellebrite, an Israeli company that specialises in digital forensics, has dominated the market in helping law enforcement access mobile phones. But one apparent reseller of the company’s products is publicly distributing copies of Cellebrite firmware and software for anyone to download.
Although Cellebrite keeps it most sensitive capabilities in-house, the leak may still give researchers, or competitors, a chance to figure out how Cellebrite breaks into and analyzes phones by reverse-engineering the files.
