Masque Attack: So schützen Sie sich vor der iOS-Lücke | Cyber Security | Apple | Apple, Mac, iOS4, iPad, iPhone and (in)security... | Scoop.it
Nach der vergleichsweise harmlosen WireLurker-Angriffsmethode sorgt inzwischen eine weitaus bedrohlichere iOS-Schwachstelle für Schlagzeilen. Die Angriffsart «Masque Attack» hat es dabei auf alle iPhone-Nutzer abgesehen, auch auf iPhones ohne Jailbreak.
Die Methode macht sich die Tatsache zunutze, dass die von Apple herausgegebenen Enterprise-Zertfikate die Installation neuer Anwendungen auch ausserhalb des App-Stores zulassen.


Die Cyberkriminellen seien sogar in der Lage, installierte iOS-Apps zu überschreiben. Fällt jemand auf die Masche rein, wird beispielsweise unbemerkt eine tägliche Anwendung wie Gmail überschreiben. So könnte z.B. eine E-Banking-App als Keylogger-Anwendung missbraucht werden, um Bankdaten von Nutzern auszuspionieren.
