Student or Learner
I've found the following:
Internet attacks commonly become more effective as they evolve over time as hackers learn to avoid the mistakes of earlier infections. "You would have to pay the guy, or law enforcment would have to get his key to open the files," Stewart said.
Which of the following interpretations is appropriate in this case?
1) get [his key] to open (almost similar to "have his key open"?)
2) get [his key to open] ("to open" modifies "his key")
3 get [his key] to open (almost similar to "get his key in order to open")
I hope you'll understand what I want to know.
I've found more context: http://www.crime-research.org/news/24.05.2005/1255/
(I personally think #3 is the most likely. I'd take it to mean '[...] to use his key to open [...]')
