A Russian company is offering a tool that it claims can crack the encrypted contents of an iPhone.
Elcomsoft's iPhone Password Breaker is pitched at forensic investigators, and can dig into the handset's operating system and recover previously unavailable content, according to the firm.
The content includes passwords for email accounts, web sites and third-party software, and can provide "valuable court evidence to investigators and forensic authorities", Elcomsoft claimed.
The password cracker works across a range of Apple devices running iOS4 or iPhone OS, including the iPad and iPod touch.
"The latest update allows ElcomSoft to grant forensic access to passwords stored in iPhone devices running iOS 4, with known or unknown back-up passwords and without altering the content of the phone," the firm said.
Elcomsoft said that the Password Breaker uses dictionary attacks that work " near instantly" thanks to ATI and Nvidia video acceleration hardware.
