Untethered iOS 9.1 Jailbreak wins $1 million price
A premium zero-day acquisition platform called ‘Zerodium’, had announced a $1 million dollar price for an untethered browser-based jailbreak for iOS 9.1 immediately after the iOS software update was released.
iOS hacking team has created a browser-based iOS 9.1 jailbreak, and they also win the $1 million bounty. The jailbreak also works for Jailbreak iOS 9.2, which has currently been seeded to developers. Apple had patched two vulnerabilities in iOS 9.1 used by the Pangu 9 Jailbreak.
This is an incredible achievement, because as browser-based exploit is considered extremely difficult. The browser based Jailbreak also the easiest ways to jailbreak iPhone, iPad or iPod touch device. The last browser-based jailbreak for iOS devices was JailbreakMe that was released back in 2011 by well-known iOS hacker called ‘comex’.
‘Zerodium’ founder Chaouki Bekrar said that they might share the iOS 9.1 Jailbreak details in the future. Anyhow we didn’t know exactly the company does it plan to release iOS 9.1 Jailbreak to the public, or plan to reveal the vulnerabilities to Apple.
It is disappointing that the iOS 9.1 jailbreak that won the $1 million prize money and doesn’t share any details with public, but important thing is that iOS 9.1 – iOS 9.2 can be jailbroken. It remains to be seen if Pangu team or other jailbreak teams can discover the exploits for Jailbreak iOS 9.1 and Jailbreak iOS 9.2.
