Hackers Shows Browser Jailbreak [Video]



A well-known hacker Luca Todesco who has successfully jailbroken iOS 9.2, iOS 9.2.1, iOS 9.3, and the yet to be released publicly iOS 9.3.3 beta, has recently showed the untethered browser jailbreak of iOS 9.3.2. To hack an Apple-branded device, the developer used Apple’s native browser Safari, which, as it turns out, is quite vulnerable to such threats.

The video below depicts the sixth-generation iPod touch running iOS 9.3.2 and the process of browser-based jailbreak. Unfortunately, it is very unlikely that Todesco will release a public tool for jailbreak. According to the hacker, he’s mostly interested in research, not actual hacking of iPhones, iPads and iPod touch units running the latest firmware versions.
