"The NSA has nearly complete backdoor access to Apple's iPhone"

FourthAmendment.com links to this story at The Daily Dot. In part:

The U.S. National Security Agency has the ability to snoop on nearly every communication sent from an Apple iPhone, according to leaked documents shared by security researcher Jacob Appelbaum and German news magazine Der Spiegel. An NSA program called DROPOUTJEEP allows the agency to intercept SMS messages, access contact lists, locate a phone using cell tower data, and even activate the device's microphone and camera.
