Apple "All of those questions, messages, and stern commands that people have been whispering to Siri are stored on Apple servers for up to two years, Wired can now report. Yesterday, we raised concerns about some fuzzy disclosures in Siri's privacy policy. After our story ran, Apple spokeswoman Trudy Muller called to explain Apple's policy, something privacy advocates have asking for." Apple cares about your privacy.

But what are the chances your target has an iPhone 4S/5, uses Siri, spoke incriminating words via it and you knowing this?

Then you'd have to hack in to Apple and find that piece of voice data amongst billions of snippets.

I don't say it's impossible, but it's very unlikey and it doesn't make much sense when looking at effort vs reward.

Emails, surf stats, files, computer contents, dial lists, etc... are much more likely to contain incriminating information and are much easier to obtain. People who worry about Siri privacy should be worrying about those things a lot more.
