Google to Publish iOS Exploit That Could Make First iOS 11 Jailbreak Happen
Jailbreaking iPhones is more or less a thing of the past, not necessarily because the community no longer seeks access to parts of iOS that Apple has otherwise locked down, but due to the improved security that makes it more difficult to unlock the operating system.
But as it turns out, Google has recently discovered a vulnerability in iOS 11 that could allow for the very first iOS 11 jailbreak, and by the looks of things, the company will make it public.
Before anything, it’s worth mentioning that the flaw in question was discovered by Google’s Project Zero team, whose main role is to find unpatched security vulnerabilities in products from any company, not just Google.
It already happened several times in the case of Microsoft, and it even happened with Apple, as Ian Beer, one of the security researchers involved in the project, helped Cupertino fix no less than 5 out of the 15 flaws patched in iOS 11.2.
