Fraunhofer cracks iPhone password in 6 minutes, exposes stored passwords


“What’s the one thing that could make losing your iPhone worse? If the person who happens to find your AWOL iPhone knows exactly what they’re doing. In a two-minute video clip published by German engineering firm Fraunhofer, the company demonstrates how an iPhone’s password security can be rendered completely moot. The demonstration takes a locked, unmodified iPhone, running the latest firmware, and, with the help of jailbreaking software, gains access to all stored passwords on the device — Wi-Fi networks, saved website logins… anything stored in your keychain file. The demonstration is meant to illustrate how crucial it is for companies and individuals to not only use a pass codes on mobile devices, but also react quickly — preferably initiating a remote wipe — if the device is lost. ”
