Hidden Dangers of iPad (iCloud)
One of my pals (an infinite fan of Apple) was just speculating about iCloud usability, even though he always maintains quite a high level of his data protection. Passwords, passcodes, password keepers and managers, data security - thatís what he stakes on! With that he didnít even suppose that a very quick connection to unprotected public Wi-Fi network in McDonalds can lead to data leakage. We were sitting in such one. He couldnít believe my words, but when I got to know his Apple ID and a password, I showed how easily all his work and private life appeared at my disposal, whereas his iPad was still lying in his pocket, I didnít even touch it all this time. Now I could get all his emails, pictures and all his geolocation data, even new ones just within a little time difference. Finally, my friend got this FBI-syndrome that he is being watched and so on. He even started dwelling on global sneaking spyware and the very next day when we met, he was carrying a simple brick-phone. The point here is that even iPad and public Wi-Fi are incompatible, because even iPad can provide only relevant security, and even if itís not jailbroken and has only licensed software, you can easily become a victim because of Apple software shortcomings. And that is why right after Elcomsoft updated their EPPB with this new feature which can download iCloud data IBM officially prohibited their employees using both iCloud and iPhones for business. Do you think you are being watched after? Oh, perhaps you are.
