Good morning everyone! I know it’s that crazy time of year with the Holidays right around the corner, but some of us are still working… unfortunate, right?

In summary, the IP-BOX can be used to defeat simple 4 digit PINS on iOS devices. This includes devices running iOS1 – iOS8. While newer iOS device require additional steps, the good news is that this magical black box may work at bypassing that lock!
If this issue is of interest to you, I would sign up for the SANS FOR585 Advanced Smartphone Forensics course where we discuss the IP-BOX and other methods for dealing with locked smartphones. Until then, please enjoy the paper that Detective Cindy Murphy tool the time to write.
