It seems, however, the cat and mouse game goes into the next round, since Grayshift has already indicated that you could already bypass the USB protection in iOS 12.

With iOS 12, Apple will introduce a USB protection that will make it harder for companies like Grayshift to crack an iOS device. This has once again officially confirmed Apple yesterday . It seems, however, the cat and mouse game goes into the next round, since Grayshift has already indicated that you could already bypass the USB protection in iOS 12.



Grayshift: "We have already bypassed iOS 12 USB protection"


With iOS 12, Apple implements a new security feature that makes it harder to crack the device. If the protection is activated in the settings, the USB function of the Lightning port is automatically deactivated after one hour, if the device has not been unlocked with the passcode, Face ID or Touch ID in the meantime.

In this way Apple wants to fend off Hackingmaßnahmen by boxes such as the GrayKey box. Security authorities who want to crack an iPhone, therefore, would have only one hour after the last unlocking of the device time to perform an appropriate hacking action.





Grayshift claims now in an e-mail correspondence that the company has already managed to circumvent the new USB protection of iOS 12. If the claim is true, a Brute Force attack on an iPhone could be possible on iOS 12 even if the USB protection is active and the device has not been unlocked for more than an hour.

bypass the USB protection in iOS 12.


From the outside it is difficult to assess whether Apple has fully implemented the USB protection with the iOS 12 Beta 1 , and whether Grayshift has actually found a way to circumvent this. In the coming months we will receive the answers. It is clear that Grayshift will do everything to continue to sell the 15,000-USD GrayKey boxes. (via motherboard )
