In an interview with CNBC, Libertarian presidential candidate and security software entrepreneur John McAfee was asked if he was the third party that the FBI said was helping them crack Apple’s encryption.
“No, it’s not me, but I know exactly who it is and what they are doing. And I promise you that Tim Cook and Apple are not going to be happy with the solution that the FBI has come up with, because it is almost as bad as a universal master key," he responded.
McAfee would not reveal what method he thinks the FBI is employing or who was behind it.
“I’m not fond of it,” he said.
