A hacker figured out how to brute force iPhone passcodes | ZDNet The attack allows any would-be-hacker to run as many passcodes as they want, without destroying the data. “... And if the wrong passcode is entered too many times, the device gets wiped. But Matthew Hickey, a security researcher and co-founder of cybersecurity firm Hacker House, found a way to bypass the 10-time limit and enter as many codes as he wants -- even on iOS 11.3. "An attacker just needs a turned on, locked phone and a Lightning cable," Hickey told ZDNet.” “"If you send your brute-force attack in one long string of inputs, it'll process all of them, and bypass the erase data feature," he explained. Hickey posted a demonstration video of his attack online. An attacker can send all the passcodes in one go by enumerating each code from 0000 to 9999 in one string with no spaces. Because this doesn't give the software any breaks, the keyboard input routine takes priority over the device's data-erasing feature, he explained.”
