At the beginning of April the news arrived on the net of a start-up called GrayShift, which had managed to violate the security of all iPhone and iPad with iOS 11 operating system. In principle, everything seemed perfect for the company as it was marketing with US law enforcement agencies and security agencies, to unlock any protected iPhone or iPad with a 4-digit code.

In any case, hackers are not interested in publishing this code so that GrayShift continues to pay and GrayShift is not interested because they want to continue making money by selling their boxes …
Apple herself with Tim Cook, in front sure they are working on correcting the problem security on iOS devices, but while this does not happen the code goes hand in hand.

The issue of iPhone security is really good and Apple users can be calm in this regard. But obviously there are always security holes and these sometimes allow third parties to get into the system and get the data or the objective they were looking for, in this case it is a paradox and is that the security company is affected by a hack when they were doing "business" with another hack …
