Today a team of Chinese hackers have released an untethered jailbreak of iOS 7.1.1. The utility is called Pangu.
Currently a jailbreak utility is only available for Windows users.
The team credits famous hacker i0n1c, who introduced the infoleak bug during his training. By the way i0n1c has said, "if pangu team releases a public jailbreak with vulnerabilities disclosed to them during my training I consider this in no way okay."
Good news for all jailbreakers - looks like Apple’s new iOS 8 is jailbreakable. According to what security expert Stefan Esser (aka i0n1c) has tweeted a couple of hours ago, the guys from Cupertino haven’t fixed the kernel bug used to jailbreak iOS-devices. This means that immediately after the public release of iOS 8 we may have a jailbreak for it.
According to what people familiar with the matter say, Apple may launch a new software platform called “Smart Home” at the Worldwide Developers Conference, which kicks off next week. The new system will allow iPhone users to control their home security system, lights etc. directly from their smartphone.
You've probably heard about the iOS 7.1.1 jailbreak developed by i0n1c and Winocm. As it turns out, there's another jailbreak. It was developed by the researchers Yeongjin Jang and Tielei Wang.
Good news for all jailbreakers - iOS 7.1.1 has been jailbroken. According to the image shared by famous security researcher Stefan Esser aka i0n1c, the devices running iOS 7.1.1 can be successfully hacked.
It's Sunday today, which means I should tell you about the most interesting posts of past seven days. Let's begin.
As you probably know, Apple is expected to release its next-gen iPhone later this year. Ahead of the purported launch, more and more mockups and alleged schematics appear on the Internet. They look pretty much the same, however, each one has a unique or worth mentioning feature. That's why I try to describe each mockup thoroughly.
Earlier this week it was reported that iOS 7 doesn't encrypt email attachments, though it should. The only possible way out was not to detach important or confidential files to emails, but fortunately, another one appeared on Wednesday.
Apple's iOS 7 (including iOS 7.1) is not as secure and protected as it was believed to be. According to what security researcher Andreas Kurtz writes, email attachments sent using native Mail app aren't encrypted. What's even more interesting is that Apple claims the files are encrypted. This means the guys from Cupertino had no idea about the issue until now.
A tiny malicious utility capable of stealing Apple IDs and user passwords has been recently discovered. It is called 'Unflod Baby Panda' and it infects jailbroken iPhones and iPads, so if you use one, you'd better read this post till the end.
Apple on Tuesday updated its iWork for both iOS and Mac with a new read-only sharing mode, Retina graphics support, improved design and a number of other important features. The updated iWork suite apps are currently available on App Store and Mac App Store, so don’t waste your time - go and get them right now.
Apple has officially released Safari 7.0.3 to users worldwide. The release comes just about a week after the latest beta, which contained some minor enhancements. Apple says that the new version is recommended for all OS X Mavericks users as it “contains improvements to compatibility, stability, and security.”
As you probably know, Apple has recently released iOS 7.1 to users worldwide. However, I recommend that you should wait for a while and don’t update since Apple has patched the kernel exploit used by evasi0n7 jailbreak tool. What this means is that it is temporarily impossible to hack the device running iOS 7.1, either it is an iPhone or iPad or iPod touch.
Apple on Monday officially released iOS 7.1. The update contains a number of new features like CarPlay, for instance, serious security improvements as well as Touch ID and Siri enhancements. This update comes nearly 6 months after the original iOS 7 release last fall.
