iPhone 4 Jailbreak Code Goes Public
Category : General 14 Aug 2010 01:13 AM | Industry News
The source code was released right after Apple [AAPL] launched the iOS 4.0.2 and iOS 3.2.2 updates that blocked and prevented the jailbreak from working.
Although Apple for many years escaped most of the hacker wrath, the company has been the target of high-profile attacks in recent years.
The hack actually used two exploits. One used a corrupted font in a PDF to allow any code to be run on your device. The second leap-frogged the first and allowed that code to get super-user, or root, privileges, letting it install anything, anywhere on the system.
According to tweet made by the Chief Research Officer at Antivirus Company F-Secure Mikko Hypponen “Impressive and Dangerous”. The Hackers can definitely going to use Comex work to attack and gain the root access or complete control of iPhone and iPad.
The update that Apple had released was only for the iPhone 3G and later that run on the iPhone OS 2.0 or later and the second generation iPod Touch or later that run on the iOS 2.1 or later. It means the early models are still vulnerable to attack. Another risk is on the Mac OS X. Similar to the iOS, Apple desktop operating system includes the free type font engine that may be vulnerable to the same or similar exploit.
