Last year’s iCloud hack was certainly one of more infamous events in Internet history, and now it looks like 2015 might have a similar event. A hacker known as Pr0x13 has released a new tool on GitHub that it call “iDict” and claims is capable of bypassing the restrictions and authentication that protect every single iCloud account, essentially turning all iOS devices into an all-you-can-eat buffet for hackers.
A hacker has released a tool that he says can break into any iCloud account. The tool, iDict, uses an exploit in Apple’s security to bypass restrictions that stop most hackers from gaining access to accounts. On iDict’s GitHub page, user “Pr0x13” says the exploit used to create the hacking tool is “painfully obvious” and that it “was only a matter of time” before hackers used it to break into iCloud accounts. The tool is described as a “100% working iCloud Apple ID dictionary attack that bypasses account lockout restrictions and secondary authentication on any account.” There’s no confirmation that iDict is indeed a working exploit, but users on Twitter and Reddit are claiming to have tested the tool and found it to work as described.
