Mit "Apple iCloud für Windows" können Sie persönliche Dokumente, Mails, Fotos und Termine zwischen Apple-Geräten wie iPhone oder iPad und Windows-PC synchronisieren.

Apple hat für seine Software "iCloud für Windows" ein außerplanmäßiges Update auf Version 7.2 veröffentlicht, das gleich mehrere Sicherheitslücken schließt.


Das Bundesamt für Sicherheit in der Informationstechnik (BSI) stuft die Sicherheitslücken auf seiner fünf-stufigen Skala mit Risikostufe 4 ("hoch") ein und empfiehlt allen iPhone- oder iPad-Nutzern mit Windows-PCs das Programm möglichst schnell zu updaten:


Apple behebt mit einem Sicherheitsupdate für iCloud für Windows mehrere Sicherheitslücken, die von einem Angreifer aus dem Internet ausgenutzt werden können, um beliebige Aktionen auf Ihrem Gerät auszuführen und private Informationen über Sie zu sammeln.

Apple Keeps Constant Log Of iPhone Calls In iCloud, Warns Cop Contractor | #Privacy #Datenschutz

Apple Keeps Constant Log Of iPhone Calls In iCloud, Warns Cop Contractor | #Privacy #Datenschutz | Apple, Mac, MacOS, iOS4, iPad, iPhone and (in)security... | Scoop.it
Apple has a hidden feature for you in its iPhones: call logs going back as far as four months are stored in near real-time in the iCloud. That’s the warning today from a Russian provider of iPhone hacking tools, Elcomsoft, which claimed the feature was automatic and there was no way to turn it off bar shutting down iCloud Drive altogether.

Whilst it was well-known that iCloud backups would store call logs, contacts and plenty of other valuable data, users should be concerned to learn that their communications records are consistently being sent to Apple servers without explicit permission, said Elcomsoft CEO Vladimir Katalov. Even if those backups are disabled, he added, the call logs continue making their way to the iCloud, Katalov said.

“Syncing call logs happens almost in real time, though sometimes only in a few hours,” he added. “But all you need to have is just iCloud Drive enabled, and there is no way to turn that syncing off, apart from just disabling iCloud Drive completely. In that case many applications will stop working or lose iCloud-related features completely.”

All FaceTime calls are logged in the iCloud too, whilst as of iOS 10 incoming missed calls from apps like WhatsApp and Skype are uploaded, said Elcomsoft, which provides phone forensics tools to police. Its tools were also linked to the iCloud leaks of celebrity nude pictures, as anyone can purchase Elcomsoft kit. Last month, it revealed Apple had failed to properly secure its iTunes backups, making it much easier for its tools (and cybercriminals) to access users’ information. Apple subsequently updated iOS 10 to improve backup security.

Apple devices held for ransom, amid massive iCloud account hack rumours | #CyberSecurity 

Apple devices held for ransom, amid massive iCloud account hack rumours | #CyberSecurity  | Apple, Mac, MacOS, iOS4, iPad, iPhone and (in)security... | Scoop.it
Steve Ragan of CSO Online:
"On July 1, Alanna Coca noticed her iPad had started beeping. When she opened the cover, the lock screen had a message displaying a phrase in Russian – "Dlya polucheniya parolya, napshite na email" – followed by a Gmail address."
"Roughly translated, the phrase was telling her that in order to receive a password, she'll need to email the address displayed."
Such attacks aren't unusual (you may remember a message from Russian hacker Oleg Pliss popping up on some users' iMacs, iPhones and iPads back in 2014), and are perpetrated by a hacker putting a victim's device into lost mode after breaking into their Apple ID account.
A message sent by the hacker to the locked device asks for the victim to get in touch to arrange the ransom payment, and may even make a veiled threat that the device's data will be erased if cash is not transferred promptly.
What spices things up a little more this time is that Ragan reports rumours of a massive data breach at Apple potentially impacting 40 million iCloud accounts.
That may be nonsense, of course - it's possible that accounts have fallen under the control of hackers because of less sensational reasons - such as poor password choices, phishing or reusing the same password on multiple sites.
What is clear is that some Apple users are having their devices hijacked by extortionists. So make sure that you have a unique, hard-to-crack, hard-to-guess password protecting your Apple ID account.
And, if you haven't already done so, I strongly recommend enabling two-step verification on your Apple ID account to make it harder for hackers to break in.

Apple Fixes Flaw Impacting HomeKit Devices | #CyberSecurity #NobodyIsPerfect #Awareness

Apple Fixes Flaw Impacting HomeKit Devices | #CyberSecurity #NobodyIsPerfect #Awareness | Apple, Mac, MacOS, iOS4, iPad, iPhone and (in)security... | Scoop.it

Apple said it has fixed an undisclosed vulnerability in its HomeKit framework that could have allowed unauthorized remote control of HomeKit devices such as smart locks and connected garage door openers.

The flaw was first reported by the publication 9to5Mac on Thursday. According to the publication, the vulnerability requires an iPhone or iPad running the latest iOS 11.2 that is linked to the HomeKit user’s iCloud account.

 
The write-up on the vulnerability is vague and does not state what the specific vulnerability is, only that it was demonstrated to the publication and that it is complex to exploit.

HomeKit is Apple’s software framework for smart-home appliances that lets iPhone and iPads users communicate with and control dozens of compatible third-party HomeKit-enabled devices.

Berichte über neue Erpressungswelle mit iPhone-Fernsperre | #Apple #Cybercrime #iCloud  | Apple, Mac, MacOS, iOS4, iPad, iPhone and (in)security... | Scoop.it
Angreifer setzen offenbar erneut auf "Mein iPhone suchen", um das Gerät aus der Ferne zu sperren. Die Freigabe des iPhones erfolge nur nach Zahlung einer Lösegeldsumme, so die Drohung.

Apples iCloud-Fernortungsfunktion kommt erneut für Erpressungsversuche zum Einsatz, wie die Sicherheitsseite CSO berichtet. Russischsprachige Angreifer sperren dabei das iPhone oder iPad des Opfers aus der Ferne und schicken eine Benachrichtigung, die die Zahlung von Lösegeld erfordert. Derzeit sind angeblich besonders Nutzer in Europa und den USA betroffen.

Die Angreifer hoffen offenbar, dass das Opfer schon bezahlt hat, bevor es bemerkt, dass es tatsächlich weiter auf das eigene Gerät zugreifen kann. Das Fern-Setzen einer neuen PIN ist nämlich nur für Macs, nicht aber bei iOS-Geräten möglich – zumindest wenn dort die Code-Sperre eingerichtet wurde.

"Mein iPhone suchen" als Angriffsvektor
Für die Angriffe kommt den Berichten zufolge Apples Sicherheitsfunktion "Mein iPhone suchen" zum Einsatz: Sie ermöglicht, das Gerät aus der Ferne in den Verloren-Modus zu versetzen und dem Nutzer eine Nachricht zu übermitteln. Dies ist eigentlich dafür gedacht, um eine Kontaktmöglichkeit für den ehrlichen Finder zu hinterlegen.

Sometimes I wish the internet could just be a place to exchange wholesome information, such as cooking recipes and tips on Linux, but sadly, there is a dark side. There are deviant people lurking on the web doing all sorts of horrible things. Yesterday, a hacker leaked the private pictures and videos (nude and semi-nude) of many celebrities, and they have spread across the net. For these celebrities, who are real people, I am sure it has been a very trying time; their privacy has been destroyed and I offer my sympathies.

Ammanda Daniher's curator insight, September 11, 2014 10:33 PM

It is pretty clear that iCloud has become a threat to most Apple users due to the recent "Celebrity nudes" scandal. I strongly believe that you shouldn't be worried about people being able to get a hold of photographs and videos of personal moments, such as family dinners and Christmas parties. This incident really makes you wonder just how easy it is to hack in to Apple's software systems, and how much Apple's developers have seen of our personal lives. Scandals such as thing will keep things talking, but will Apple release a statement regarding everything that has happened?

Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) reportedly allowed a hacker to take over a journalist's iCloud account by deceiving the company's tech support team. What affect will this have on the future of Apple's success?

 

This situation could cause irreparable harm to Apple, which touts iCloud as an “automatic and effortless” offer that integrates into users’ apps. The iPhone maker heavily promotes the fact that iCloud allows users to backup and restore their data.
