India’s government is “really angry” that Apple ratted them out for hacking.

The Washington Post reports that Indian officials pushed back on Apple after the company sent alerts to journalists and politicians saying their phones had been targeted by state-sponsored hackers — i.e. the Indian government.

The government then demanded that Apple say the warnings had been a mistake. (And it kinda-sorta did.) The pressure puts Apple in a tense position between its security ideals and its political standing in an important growing market.
