Apple operating system is well-known for its robust security and so on rare cases we see an iPhone or iPad being hacked. In the past, there were several incidents where hackers steal revenue by injecting their scripts to iOS devices and most recently over 220,000 iCloud accounts and passwords were stolen. Just because the iPhone operating system is really good when it comes to protecting you from malicious malware, that doesn’t mean it’s unbreakable.
A recent research from Palo Alto networks has discovered a new piece of malware called KeyRaider that aims at jailbroken users and their devices. This malware allows the hackers to steal Apple’s iCloud accounts. As up to this point, statistics showed that KeyRaider has helped hackers steal over 250,000 Apple accounts. These iCloud accounts do not just based in the U.S but also in many different countries where iPhone and iPad are popular, including China, Australia, France, Germany, South Korea, Singapore, and many more.
