It seems that the purported vulnerability was present even in the latest version of iOS, 11.3.
People generally put passcodes to lock mobile devices for a safe side but, if you think that you are safe to have an iPhone locked with a passcode, then you are not.
As iPhone users are aware, they only have so many attempts to enter an incorrect passcode into an iPhone.
The news should disappoint law enforcement agencies that have a history of accessing iPhone data by relentlessly entering different passcodes and were reportedly frustrated with Apple's most recent self-erasing security measures. He said: "Instead of sending passcode one at a time and waiting, send them all in one go. If you send your brute-force attack in one long string of inputs, it'll process all of them, and bypass the erase data feature", says Hickey.

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 Design Leaks Tip Galaxy Note 8-Like Design
If there is a drawback to the new radical Galaxy Note 9 design , is that Samsung will completely ditch the headphone jack port. Now, a fresh report has surfaced online recommending that the Galaxy Note 9 might arrive in 512 GB internal memory version.
At the time of Hickey's video, some in the security industry had cast doubts on its viability.
"I went back to double check all code and testing", said Hickey in a subsequent message on Sunday. This video showed what was original believed to be a bypass exploit for the erase data function, however the SEP is not actually processing the majority of the input PIN's due to the aforementioned feature in iOS.
Apple boasts on the security of its iOS devices, but sometimes even the best measures can not prevent a malicious attack. According to a researcher, there are flaws with your iPhone passcodes that makes your phone unsafe even if it is locked with a passcode.
The new feature will effectively prevent anyone from using the USB cable for anything other than charging the device if someone hasn't unlocked the device with a passcode within the last hour. This will be sent as one consecutive string without spaces and would contain all possible combinations from 0000 to 9999, or 000000 to 999999. For years, Apple's iOS recommended that users employ six-digit security codes, which would take weeks to hack via Hickey's method.
Hickey claimed that the bug has been reported to the Apple, as it isn't that complicated to identify. It triggers an interrupt request that is picked by the device immediately. You can also send PGP email with the fingerprint: 4D0E 92F2 E36A EC51 DAAE 5D97 CB8C 15FA EB6C EEA5.
