Ios 10: Security Flaw in Backups

After Apple until about two weeks ago with ios 10.0.1 a security flaw in the iphone, ipad & co. Concluded, there is now the next bad news for the company from Cupertino: researchers of Russian security provider elcomsoft found out that with itunes created local backups of IOS 10 are less protected than backups of iphones and ipads using ios 9. The result: The password used to encrypt can crack at a significantly lower cost than was possible with earlier versions of the Apple operating system.

Ios 10: this is new

New security procedures

Is according to researchers that that Apple with ios 10 has introduced an alternative mechanism to verify the backup password. The new procedures have certain security checks out, which is why 2,500 times faster to guess the password is as for the mechanism of ios 9 and earlier. The implications of this flaw are significant. An early pure CPU implementation of this attack is a performance boost of factor 40 compared to a full GPU-optimized attack on an ios-9 backup, Oleg Afonin, security researcher at elcomsoft writes, in the company’s own blog.
