Apple Stops Signing iOS 8.4, Downgrades Are Impossible Now



Apple has just stopped signing iOS 8.4. This means it is currently impossible to downgrade to this version of Apple’s mobile operating system.

If you have a jailbroken iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, make sure you don’t upgrade to iOS 8.4.1 accidentally. Although it seems that this version is jailbreakable, currently there are no tools capable of hacking devices with IOS 8.4.1 on board. If you try jailbreaking your device and then something goes wrong, you will have to restore to iOS 8.4.1, not iOS 8.4.

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.
