Fraunhofer Institute Secure Information Technology (Fraunhofer SIT) have found a way to Extract your iPhone Password in less than 6 minutes. The attack requires the phone to be in possession and hits the Apple’s password management system called “Keychain“.

This is a great threat to all of the iPhone users around the world, ‘Cause you may loose your Gmail account, corporate VPN, home WiFi, and MS Exchange Passwords in just 6 Minutes. If you store sensitive information on your iPhone you have a great threat to loose all that information in just minutes. The amazing thing about this cracking is that, they won’t require your passcode to get entrance to your iPhone. This was taken as a research, but as it is revealed it definitely mean that if the researcher’s can access your device than hacker can do the same in just minutes.

Hacker won’t need your Passcode to access your Device, because your Password is based on the material available within your device. Once hacker’s have got possession to your iOS device all your data is visible to him even the most sensitive you’ve saved in your device.

Even though the attack lets retrieve the passwords from Keychain, other protection classes are still safe from it. Some of the passwords which were retrieved on the test are of Google Mail as an MS Exchange account, other MS Exchange accounts, LDAP accounts, voicemail, VPN passwords, WiFi passwords and some App passwords.

For now, since their is no fix to this, the owners of the lost iDevices should instantly change their passwords.
