A hacker has created a solution that can be used to hack iCloud password. It’s called the ‘iDict’ tool. It utilizes an exploit in Apple’s security to bypass the restrictions.
On the Github page of iDict, a user name ‘Pr013’ sated the exploit that was behind this tool was ‘painfully obvious’ and it was just a matter of time before hackers started using it to gain access to iCloud accounts.
The description of the iCloud hacking tool says the following:
"100% working iCloud Apple ID dictionary attack that bypasses account lockout restrictions and secondary authentication on any account." While there’s no information that iDicit is indeed functioning, users on Reddit and Twitter have claimed to use the tool and report that is works well.
Apple implemented several ways to prevent criminals from hacking its iCloud service. The company stopped people from guessing passwords again and again by putting an end to "brute force" attacks. Then Apple also enabled users to verify login attempts with the aspect of two-factor authentication using their smartphones. But iDict has been reported to bypass those security implementations.
If iDict does indeed work as it has been reported, there’s very little an iCloud account owner can do to protect his/her account. The tool wants users to enter the email address related to the iCloud account before anyone tries to gain access. So a way to make your iCloud account before secure is to use an email that hasn’t been shared online.
