Is Apple collaborating with the NSA?

Apple has been accused of working with with the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA) to spy on iPhone users, according to a report on TechCrunch. A recently leaked 50-page catalogue that lists all the hacking tools NSA agents have access contains a “DROPOUTJEEP” malware that apparently targets the iOS platform. Security researcher Jacob Applebaum notes that the promised 100 percent success rate implies the cooperation of Apple with the NSA.
