With the improved Masque attack, it is possible to perform many actions, including full kernel and user memoryspace traversal, which would include any sort of temporary or permanent backdoor against jailed iOS, including version 8.2 (i.e., this does not require a jailbroken device).

That is normal for iCloud tokens to time out. You will see it when you reboot, so the update was a coincidence and not causing the password request.

Date 1st impact Identify as best as you can the date of 1st attack. Because all the backup after this date are corrupted and can't be trusted.

I'm not a developer or a guru in all of the available keys with launch daemons, but that is kind of a tall order as by design, root can do anything. I'm thinking you would basically be creating a security "virus" that would have a helper mechanism reload the daemon if it gets unloaded.

So, as noted in the update, Safari does actually warn you -- once. If you decide to proceed anyway, then for the remainder of that browser session, you need to remember that you're talking to a potentially compromised server, because you will see no evidence of that except by examining the certificate (by clicking on the https/padlock icon). However, ...
