iPhone security leak getting bigger


It appears that the iPhone security leak seems to be getting broader.

A few days ago (last week I think), it was found out that if you connect an iPhone that is turned off (powered down) to a Linux machine, it’ll access some pieces of the OS.

Now, over at The H Security, they have found an even bigger threat.

Head on over there and see the full article.

The iPhone’s data leak is even more extensive than initially assumed. In initial tests, encrypted and locked devices essentially only disclosed music and images. However, The H’s associates at heise Security have now managed to connect an iPhone with iTunes under Windows and created a full backup, including such sensitive data as passwords in clear text.
