Found a way to hack any iPhone

Built-in vulnerability of the processors of smartphones and tablets allows Apple to circumvent their protection, said the Agency on cyber security Digitpol with reference to the Chinese development team Pangu.

It is noted that the problem is related to processor SEP (Secure Enclave Protection) that are responsible for safeguarding confidential information, including passwords and biometrics.

To hack uses an exploit Checkm8, which bypasses the automatic locking of the device after ten incorrect password attempts. As a result, the attacker can find the code to unlock the gadget. Experts specify that to hack the device the hacker needs to gain physical access to the device.

According to experts, the vulnerability could not be eliminated at the software level.
