The EPPB interface allows debugger-initiated transactions during processor reset. It is also used to transfer Nested Vectored Interrupt Controller (NVIC) state to an External Wakeup Interrupt Controller (EWIC) on sleep entry and exit. This interface is implemented in the Arm Cortex - M55 microprocessor.

The hacker behind the recent leak of naked celebrity photos appears to have used a software program that cleanly collected data from unaware Apple iCloud accounts. The program, reportedly by Moscow-based Elcomsoft Phone Password Breaker (EPPB), enables attackers to download full backups of iPhone and iPad devices without the victim’s permission.

Using this forensic tool, hackers can access the victim’s iCloud backup and retrieve photos, files, text messages, address books, calendars, email account settings and even deleted items from the device itself. This information is useful for law enforcement and security professionals who are conducting digital investigations into criminal activity or corporate espionage involving smartphones and tablets.

A quick online search finds a number of websites offering the iCloud "ripping" service, including one called Anon-IB. The forum is a no-go for work, but it’s full of posts by people offering to "rip" iCloud backups, sometimes in a matter of minutes.

The NASP Ethics and Professional Practices Board (EPPB) is responsible for accepting, investigating, settling, and/or resolving complaints concerning ethical misconduct of school psychologists. The EPPB follows a problem-solving model described in its Procedures. Before submitting a concern, it is helpful to contact the EPPB regional representative to determine whether the concern might constitute a violation of the Code of Ethics for School Psychologists or is outside its jurisdiction.
