A well-known hacker and developer Luca Todesco has recently jailbroken the latest version of iOS, iOS 9.3.3. Below you can take a look at the image showing Todesco’s iPod touch running Cydia 1.1.26. This image has been shared on Twitter by the hacker himself.

In case you don’t know, Luca Todesco is a person who demonstrated the untethered jailbreak of iOS 9.2, iOS 9.2.1, and iOS 9.3 beta in the past. Unfortunately, there’re currently no publicly available tools for jailbreak.

At the annual Worldwide Developers Conference in June, Apple is expected to announce the next version of the firmware for iPhones, iPads and iPod touch units, iOS 10. It is currently unknown if the exploits used to hack previous iOS builds work with this version.

Stay tuned for more news about iOS jailbreak.

New Vulnerability Affects Third-Party Mac Apps



As noted by a bunch of reliable news websites, a wide number of third-party Mac apps are vulnerable to man-in-the-middle attacks. The vulnerability in Sparkle, an open source framework, which is used by many developers to make the update process easier, can let hackers execute malicious JavaScript code when the infected app or apps perform checks for updates. According to security researchers, uTorrent and a ‘huge’ number of other applications that are available outside the App Store are prone to the aforementioned vulnerability.

Pangu Team Jailbreaks iOS 8.4.1 - Rumor



I’ve got some good news for all those people who’re waiting for the release of the untethered jailbreak of iOS 8.4.1. Even though the guys from Cupertino have patched the vulnerabilities used for hacking iOS 8.4, it looks like there’re some other that can be utilized for iOS 8.4.1 jailbreak.

According to the post on the Chinese social network called Weibo, the Pangu Team has successfully jailbroken iOS 8.4.1 and showed this at the HackPwn2015 security conference. It should be noted, however, that it is very unlikely that the hackers release a new jailbreaking tool in the near future. You see, the exploits used for iOS 8.4.1 jailbreak may be used to hack iOS 9 as well, so it’s better not to reveal them right now.

New OS X Vulnerability Allows Hackers Gain Root Access Without Password



A developer from Italy named Luca Todesco has recently discovered a new zero-day vulnerability, which lets hackers gain root access in OS X Yosemite without using a password. This vulnerability is similar to the DYLD_PRINT_TO_FILE exploit that has been patched in OS X Yosemite 10.10.5. The developer has reported the vulnerability to Apple, however, it hasn’t been fixed by the guys from Cupertino in the latest update. I honestly hope that Apple developers will react somehow and close a hole in OS X security as soon as possible.
