Apple is strengthening security measures when recovering user passwords. This happened after the journalist reported the hacking of his personal data. This fact indicates possible vulnerabilities in the security system of more than 400 million user accounts of Apple devices.
Apple spokeswoman Natalie Kerris (Natalie Kerris) today said that the company is forced to suspend indefinitely the ability to recover passwords over the phone. Apple is currently taking steps to ensure and improve the security of this process.
In an interview with Wired magazine, Mat Honan (he is the victim of a hacker attack) said that hackers managed to get access to his iCloud account. Attackers were able to delete photos and other sensitive information from Mat Hanan's iPhone, iPad and MacBook. The event strangely coincided with the recovery of the access password via the phone. More precisely, it happened after the restoration.
The incident sheds light on security holes in Apple ID. Password confirmation is required to purchase music, movies and apps from iTunes and the App Store.
For those working professionally at the computer, the loss of valuable information can be the worst nightmare. Various situations are possible that will lead to the loss of data. This can be a failure caused by damaged hardware, or files accidentally deleted by the user himself
With the release of iOS 12 (detailed review), Apple's mobile operating system has received an updated password auto-complete feature. Users can now log in to apps and websites much faster using integrated third-party password managers.However, the changes do not end there
Every user who uses Internet access on his smartphone or tablet every day - at home, at work, in shops and cafes - is faced with the possibility of connecting to Wi-Fi networks. Some of them are open, while others require a password.In the latter case, if the code is known, it is entered when you first connect to the network and is stored in the gadget's memory
Sooner or later, any Apple technology user begins to think about buying licensed software in the App Store . This will require an Apple ID account, which probably every iPhone, iPad or Mac owner has. I am currently using an account I created a few years ago
According to a study by Kaspersky Lab, conducted jointly with B2B International, 29% of Internet users rely on the password recovery function on the sites themselves, and 39% are completely sure that network attackers do not need their data
