Siri can still be dangerous for the customers of Sberbank and Tinkoff Bank, Vedomosti learned. Even after more than six months from the discovery of the vulnerability, Apple does not seek to eliminate it, allowing the voice assistant to transfer money from the screen of the blocked iPhone via SMS banking.
In order for the vulnerability to "work", you need to ask Siri to send a message to number 900 (the number of the Sberbank service department). After that, you need to specify the recipient and the amount of the transfer, confirming the transaction with a code from SMS, which you can access by using the command "Show the latest messages."
It's important to understand that only iPhone owners with a connected mobile bank will be able to use the bug in the system. Fortunately, to transfer money in a similar way to the iPad because of the missing communication module will not work. When you try to deceive Siri, she will require you to enter a password to unlock the device.
The problem of Siri's excessive powers was revealed last fall. Then the official representatives of Sberbank applied to Apple with a request for its correction. The bank's management recommended to its clients to prohibit the work of Siri on the locked screen or completely disable the mobile banking service.
