This $500 Device Can Hack Three iPhone 7s In Just 1 Second: Professionals who take care of the security of Apple devices might be having a nightmare. A video circulating on the internet (and has already surpassed the mark of 870 thousand views)
The video shows a step by step tutorial on how an electronic device has been able to hack passwords of iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.
The iPhone’s protection system is one of the strictest in the smartphone market, but a small device sold for $ 500 in the US is able to hack any model of the iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus through a brute force attack.
According to the YouTube channel “EverythingApplePro,” the small device costs $ 500 and is able to discover passwords for up to three devices at the same time.
The device has three USB ports and works with software connected to a computer. The device and a dedicated software use a loophole in iOS 10 and 11 beta to launch a brute force attack and crack the password during the flashing process of iOS, which can be triggered by a third-party application without the need for the passcode.
With the devices plugged into the device, the hacker can configure the software to start an unlimited set of combinations to access the phones. Once identified, the password appears on the device’s screen.
However, cracking the passcode can take anywhere from 1 second to several days, depending on password complexity. The device can’t crack the passwords of all version of Apple’s operating system because the vulnerability is found only on devices running iOS 10 and 11 Beta.
Apple is more likely to release the patch very soon because more hacking devices like this could hit the market very soon at lower prices.
