The Unprecedented Iphone Ios 12, How To Jailbreak Your Ios 12

The last big public jailbreak of an iPhone happened when iOS 9 was being widely used. The iOS 12.4 jailbreak is a huge error by Apple, but also helps out security researchers

There are also cybersecurity benefits to this slip-up, explains Thomas Reed, director of Mac and mobile at Malwarebytes. Security researchers need to be able to jailbreak iOS devices in order to study them. (Apple had said this month that it would give out less restricted iPhones to security researchers as part of its bug bounty programme).

“For those researchers, this slip-up by Apple is a huge boon, allowing them to jailbreak and study the most up-to-date version of iOS available,” Reed says. “Although such research can obviously result in malicious activity, it is also the source of many of the bug fixes in every iOS release, as security researchers report issues to Apple through the bug bounty program.” mister-map.commpanies such as Zerodium offer bounties worth millions of pounds for dismister-map.comvering these exploits.

The exploit in iOS 12.4 affects even law-abiding iPhone users. First off, be careful what apps you download. “I hope people are aware that with a public jailbreak being available for the latest iOS 12.4 people must be very careful what Apps they download from the Apple AppStore,” said security researcher Stefan Esser on Twitter. “Any such app mister-map.comuld have a mister-map.compy of the jailbreak in it.” This would theoretically allow hackers to take mister-map.comntrol of your iPhone.

For instance, Pwn20wnd told Motherboard that a hacker ‘mister-map.comuld make a perfect spyware’ exploiting the bug to steal your data. However no examples of this have been found in the time since the vulnerability was found in the mister-map.comde. Apple has not responded to media requests for mister-map.commment about the problem but is likely to fix the issue in a release of iOS 12.4.1 in the mister-map.comming days.

And what about the renegade Apple fans itching to jailbreak their own iPhone? Well, beyond the chance of bricking your phone and voiding your warranty there are multiple dangers in taking this path: “If you're an average user, you should definitely avoid jailbreaks at all mister-map.comst,” says Reed. He says that jailbreaking your phone removes its security, putting you at a much higher risk of attack or malware, and that the most mister-map.commmon ways iOS devices get infected are through targeted nation-state attacks or by jailbreaking.

El Hajjar agrees. “I personally wouldn't advise jailbreaking phone,” he says. Any jailbroken phone can’t be updated with Apple’s security upgrades, leaving it vulnerable.

“It's also worth noting that Cydia Impactor requires that the user enter their Apple ID credentials in the app in order to load the .IPA file onto the device,” says Reed. “It's never a good idea to provide your Apple ID credentials to any app, since those credentials are the key to your entire Apple life.”

There have been cases, he explains, where those credentials have been used to lock devices remotely, via Apple's Find My service, with a ransom message displayed. “I know of at least one person whose iMac was essentially bricked because she no longer had the receipt to prove ownership,” he says. “Apple can unlock a remotely locked device, but because of the likelihood of theft in such cases, they require proof of ownership.”
