The iPhone 5 Tiziana Canton has been unlocked in a manner similar to the case of San Bernardino
The forces of law and order neapolitan are you able to unlock the iPhone 5 by Tiziana Canton, using a procedure similar to that of the now famous case of San Bernardino. Inside were found numerous important information for the investigation of his suicide.
According to what reported by a source, the police of Naples, managed to unlock the iPhone 5 by Tiziana Canton. To avoid the locking of the phone after 10 incorrect attempts to enter the password, the police have exploited a security flaw in iOS, which has made it possible for a brute force attack. This procedure allowed to find the password “trial”, thanks probably to an external device such as a computer with a high calculation unit. Inside were found several important data for the investigation on the suicide of Tiziana Canton, including the last conversations with her ex-boyfriends, and calls made shortly before his death.
Currently we don't know what version of iOS was on the iPhone when unlocking. Since this is a iPhone of 2012, the security measures are certainly lower as compared to the previous models released. In addition, the presence of a dated operating system could have facilitated the brute force attack, thanks to the security loopholes that are present and the security code of only 4 digits. According to the engineer, the Carmine Head, responsible for the release of the device, the procedure used by the police in naples was similar to that used by the FBI to the case of San Bernardino. In that occasion, the device under investigation was an iPhone 5c, architecturally very similar to the iPhone 5 in the Canton.
