Apple’s New Password System

The efforts of the software giant to save its security reputation seem to have backfired completely. Apple believed that it would be a wizard wheeze to enhance security on its iCloud and iTunes accounts with a new password system.

Understanding that it wasn’t much chop on security, the company seems to have decided to simply copy something that Google did: a code is sent to a user’s mobile phone whenever someone signs in from a new device or buys something. This scheme is called two-step authentication and is expected to stop intruders who access private data, even if those have the password.

The problem is that the Apple view on the system had a vulnerability which at one point affected all users who hadn’t yet enabled the two-step authentication feature. The matter is that if you knew a victim’s email address and date of birth, the own tools of the company allow to reset the user’s password and that’s it.

In fact, all the hackers need to do is to paste in a modified URL when answering the date of birth security question on the system’s iforgot page. Apple was quick to take down its password reset instrument, which is now back up with the flaw fixed. However, it made a mess of people who praised the company’s two-step security and promised to force the likes of rivals, like Amazon, to implement similar technology.
