IOS 11.0.3 Fixes iPhone 7 Audio and Haptic Feedback Issues

Proof-of-concept demonstrates how easy it is to fool Apple users with a simple popup Developer Discovers iOS Flaw that Tricks Users to Give Away Apple ID Password

A security vulnerability has been discovered that could allow hackers to steal your passwords.

Felix Krause, an iOS developer and the creator of the app creation automation tool Fastlane, warned that it is incredibly easy to create a spoofed version of Apple's login screen designed to harvest the username and password of unsuspecting victims who mindlessly enter their password like any other time they see the prompt. "This is a tricky problem to solve, and Web browsers are still tackling it; you still have websites that make popups look like macOS/iOS popups so that many users think [are] system message [s]".

The proof-of-concept involves the use of an overlay popup that mimics the Apple iOS password prompt.

"This could easily be abused by any app..."

An example of an iOS phishing attack.

If you hit the Cancel button on a dialog, the app still gets access to the content of the password field.

Supreme Court reserves verdict on 'living will' issue
The Court observed that it is essential to determine whether the guidelines postulated in Aruna Shanbaug case is adequate or not. Especially among the lower middle class, where the elderly are thought of as a burden and hence are subjected to great cruelty.

If you use your Apple ID password elsewhere, like your online banking service, cyber criminals could use it to crack your accounts.

"iOS should very clearly distinguish between system UI and app UI elements, so that ideally it's ... obvious for the average smartphone user that something seems off", Krause added.

He also advised that Apple direct users to the Settings app to login rather than allowing it directly through a notification pop up. So, what can you do to protect yourself now?

To obtain the update, simply go to Settings General Software Update on your iOS device.

The login boxes usually appear when you try to install or update an app, and ask you to enter your Apple ID password before you can continue. If pushing the button closes the app, and with it the popup, then it was a phishing attack. If the dialog and app are still visible, it's a system dialog.
