ElcomSoft Co. Ltd. updates Elcomsoft iPhone Password Breaker, a GPU-accelerated password recovery tool to unlock encrypted iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch backups, with iOS 4 Software support. The support of the latest iOS enables ElcomSoft’s forensic customers to access information stored in Apple devices updated with latest software.
With over a hundred new features, the iOS 4 Software Update is considered the most significant update for Apple mobile devices ever. Among other things, the updated software employs a new format for saving backups. Apple has changed the algorithm protecting encrypted backups for its iOS devices, making the backup process faster while strengthening the protection even further compared to prior releases. The company has significantly improved protection of encrypted backups, making password recovery attacks even harder. In addition, the encryption is now moved into the kernel of the new iOS as opposed to user-mode operation found in the older systems.
