IPhone passwords 'shockingly easy' to steal from iOS users

iOS Phishing Attack Masks Itself As Apple-Style Password Request

Proof-of-concept demonstrates how easy it is to fool Apple users with a simple popup

The proof-of-concept was detailed by Felix Krause, founder of the open-source app-building tool fastlane.

"Users are trained to just enter their Apple ID password whenever iOS prompts you to do so". If pushing the button closes the app, and with it the popup, then it was a phishing attack.

In Krause's picture (above), the popup (on the right) is indistinguishable from the standard iOS password prompt on the left.
