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.

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.

Stay tuned for more news about iOS jailbreak.
