FBI paid more than $1M for San Bernardino iPhone "hack"
FBI Director James Comey alluded to the fact the bureau paid more than $1 million for the method used to disable the security feature of the San Bernardino shooter's iPhone.
At an Aspen Institute discussion in London, Comey said the FBI paid more money than he would make in the time left as FBI director. He has over seven years left on his term and makes roughly just under $200,000 a year based on public files.
"How much did you pay for this software?" Comey was asked.
" A lot," he said
"More - let's see. More than I will make in the remainder of this job, which is seven years and four months, for sure," Comey said.
