Elcomsoft Phone Breaker 8.1 Adds 2FA Detection, Supports SMS Authentication

12-22-2017 04:31 PM CET | IT, New Media & Software

Press release from: ElcomSoft Co. Ltd.

Elcomsoft Phone Breaker receives an update, this time targeting cloud acquisition of Apple accounts. Version 8.1 is now able to discretely detect the presence of two-factor authentication in user accounts without triggering a push notification on users' devices. This feature gives forensic experts the choice of whether they want to proceed with cloud acquisition without alerting the suspect.

Multiple other improvements are made in this version in regards to two-factor authentication. In addition to the already supported two-factor authentication methods, Elcomsoft Phone Breaker 8.1 adds support for one-time codes delivered as text messages (SMS). This seemingly small change enables remote data extraction from Apple accounts protected with two-factor authentication even if the trusted device (iPhone, iPad or Mac) is locked, inaccessible or even destroyed. Thanks to SMS-based two-factor authentication support, experts can now have one-time codes delivered to a trusted phone number (SIM card), thus bypassing the need to unlock the device itself.

Version 8.1 fixes token-based logins for accounts with two-factor authentication, making use of Apple's new, longer tokens.

Finally, running Elcomsoft Phone Breaker 8.1 on the suspect's Windows or Mac computer now allows accessing all iCloud data (including backups) requiring just the Apple ID and password and without one-time codes, completely bypassing two-factor authentication for 2FA accounts even if the authentication token is already expired.

The update is free of charge to all customers who purchased or renewed their Elcomsoft Phone Breaker or Elcomsoft Mobile Forensic Bundle license within one year. Discounted renewal is available to customers whose maintenance plan has already expired.
