Qui oublie le mot de passe de 6 iPhones ? Avec iOS 7 Apple introduit une fonction très appréciée : le verrouillage d’activation via iCloud.

Grâce à ce mode, tout iPhone ou iPad volé et bloqué à distance ne peut être réactivé sans le mot de passe iCloud de son possesseur. Malheureusement, ce verrou a fini par être cassé. Deux hackers @AquaXetine et @MerrukTechnolog ont trouvé un moyen d'activer un appareil iOS verrouillé et ont mis à disposition du public un service en ligne, baptisé doulCi (iCloud écrit à l'envers), qui remporte un vif succès si l'on croit leur page Facebook ou leurs flux twitter. La procédure nécessite de connecter l'appareil à un PC (ou un Mac) hôte et de lancer iTunes. Ces hackers naviguent d'ailleurs en eaux troubles. Dev-Team Blog.

iOS 8. How to generate and manage app-specific passwords with iCloud. Apple has increased security around iCloud and how apps and devices can access your data. One of the newest forms of iCloud security is the use of app-specific passwords.

This ensures that your primary Apple ID password isn't collected or stored by any third party apps. Luckily, generating app-specific passwords and managing them is easy enough! Go to from any web browser and sign in to the Apple ID you use for iCloud. For anyone familiar with using app-specific passwords through Google, the process for using them through iCloud is very similar. If and when you need to view all your app-specific passwords, you can easily do so under the same Privacy & Security section by clicking View History.

Pouvoir signaler, depuis son navigateur, ne pas vouloir faire l’objet d’un suivi publicitaire, c’est le principe du Do Not Track. Le DNT pourrait bien encore longtemps ne rester qu’un simple principe et ne finalement jamais s’appliquer. Yahoo vient d’ailleurs de siffler la fin du match. L’acteur du Web annonce qu’il ne tiendra plus compte de ce paramétrage du navigateur, dont il revendique avoir été une des premières sociétés majeures du secteur à l’implémenter.

Yahoo, le faux ami du Do Not Track Mais pourquoi renoncer – même si Yahoo n’a jamais véritablement adhéré ni implémenté le Do Not Track ?
