The data retrieval company announces a new service that requires DriveSavers to recover sensitive data from a locked phone, especially hard-to-crack on iOS devices. The company's service, "Passcode Lockout Data Recovery," predicts it for ordinary consumers, and does not have the apparently designed law enforcement or any other security cyberspace business. So The Virgin It was not possible to have an effective verification tool directly, and offers Apple's promise of security of its repository.
"Especially this kind of service is only offered to consumers who have forgotten device passwords, they are blocked after too many failed attempts and they get access to the data stored in a member of the deceased's family" reads the company's press release. "Other companies offer a similar service to implement the law. DriveSavers is the first Passcode Lock Recovery Service for consumers. DriveSavers Service does not require enforcement of law and ownership is required before unlocking the device."
In the email address The VirginDepending on the DriveSavers spokesman, the service costs $ 3,900 per device, but indicates that the phone will unlock your phone or tablet. "Depending on the situation, we may request death certificates, probate documents, court documents, or other legal documents. In the case of death, we conduct a true situation with the dialogue and documentation that it checks," said the spokeswoman.
The company says that this service is designed primarily for the deceased family of relatives to access locked devices, but it would not exactly explain how security protocols can be sold on iOS or Android devices. DriveSavers also announces Windows machine services, as well as many manufacturers like Huawei, Lenovo, LG and ZTE.
Of course, these claims invite some serious skepticisms. Apple protects iPhone from a password lock system, even though the FBI could not even protect it, Apple promoted an awesome exhibition two years ago, unlocking the iPhone 5C's San Bernardino shooter. (Apple does not build a special version of its FBI operation, which would include a backdoor, the FBI sued, but eventually deleted the case).
Because the IPhone passcode is encrypted, Apple can not access the device when it is locked. There are some ways to remotely wipe the device, but texts, photos and other devices that are not stored in the cloud will not be technologically impossible, at least not having to use a high level of weakness.
The FBI ultimately bought a third-party service that received a balance of over a million million pesos. The Federal Judge of the FBI did not want to report to the public, fearing foreign opponents. However, the exploitation used in this case will no longer work, based on the older iOS software architecture.
There are methods to recover locked information from iCloud automatically via Apple, but this is not a standard consumer's daily procedure, and it does not seem that you are requesting access by DriveSavers. There are also fingerprint data spoof data in a way to access the phone through the Touch ID, as well as the use of law enforcement methods to exploit weaknesses in ways that treats iOS USB devices, especially when law enforcement agencies use grayKey hacking tool until Apple develops a completely blocked method.
DriveSavers does not look like any of these methods we currently know, but the company is a tool that allows you to read some data.
