iPhone passwords ‘shockingly easy’ to steal from iOS users

A developer has demonstrated how “shockingly easy” it is to steal people’s Apple ID passwords.

Felix Krause created a proof of concept phishing attack that looks identical to the official system popups in iOS.

He says it’s possible for criminals to programme apps to run certain code only after Apple has approved it for a spot in the App Store, and that the scheme works because iOS has “trained” users to automatically enter their details without questioning a popup’s legitimacy.
