[Download] iOS 11.1 Update with a New Emoji Batch

iOS Phishing Attack Masks Itself As Apple-Style Password Request

That's the case put forward by app developer Felix Krause, who has written a proof-of-concept breakdown of malicious lookalike pop-ups.

Mr Krause said malicious developers can turn on alerts inside their apps that look nearly identical to Apple's pop-ups using a simple bit of code. As Krause says, "Just ask your users politely, they'll probably just hand over their credentials, as they're trained to do so". However, those popups are not only shown on the lock screen, and the home screen, but also inside random apps, e.g. when they want to access iCloud, GameCenter or In-App-Purchases. "This could easily be abused by any app, just by showing an UIAlertController, that looks exactly like the system dialog".

Since there's no mention of performance or batter-related fixes, it's likely that these issues will have to wait for iOS 11.1, which is now available for beta testers.

Most of us blindingly complete these popups without batting an eyelid, but this should serve as a wake up call to anyone with an iOS device.

Man Gets Snared in 'Burqa Ban' for Wearing Full-body Shark Costume
It said it was considering a more general ban on state employees wearing the headscarf and other religious symbols. The man in the shark mask was advertising a business in central Vienna and the business was fined .

Krause recommends that iPhone and iPad users hit the home button if prompted to enter their password to determine whether the request is legitimate or not. As you can see in the screenshot above, this comes in the form of a password request that looks pretty much identical to the one that Apple uses themselves. From there, the app could send that popup and subsequently log the Apple ID and password.

But what if that pop-up hasn't come from Apple, and has instead been created to look like an official request in an attempt by hackers to steal your credentials? If it goes away and closes the app, then it is tied in with the app, but if it remains then it is a genuine iOS system request. If doing so makes both the app and the popup disappear, it was a phishing attack, he says.

The update is available now over-the-air through the Software Updates section of the Settings app.
