ElcomSoft Phone Password Breaker Software Can Now Access Your iCloud Backups
ElcomSoft has managed to figure out how to download iOS device backups directly from iCloud. The new feature has been added to its Phone Password Breaker Software allowing anyone who discovers your username and password to download your entire iCloud backup.
ElcomSoft researchers analyzed the communication protocol connecting iPhone users with Apple iCloud, and were able to emulate the correct commands in order to retrieve the content of iOS users' iCloud storage. It's important to note that, unlike offline backups that may come encrypted and must be broken into (a time-consuming operation), data retrieved from iCloud is received in plain, unencrypted form . The 5GB of storage space can be retrieved in reasonable time, while receiving incremental updates is even faster. The ability to retrieve iCloud backups is now part of Elcomsoft Phone Password Breaker. Existing customers are welcome to upgrade.
Elcomsoft Phone Password Breaker is available immediately. Home and Professional editions are available. Licenses start from $79.
