Microsoft Applauds Hacker For Windows RT Jailbreak Attempt
Over the weekend, it was reported that a hacker had claimed to discover a way to jailbreak a Windows RT device so that it would run non-Windows Store apps on a Windows RT device via a circumvention method. The method was discovered by clokr on Sunday, and and Microsoft immediately responded it was investigating the claims, which were verified.
Shortly thereafter, Microsoft issued a statement saying that it does not consider the results of the jailbreak to be part of a security vulnerability, and that the circumvention method may not be available for long. Microsoft also said it applauded clockr for his “ingenuity” to document these security gaps.
