Adam Donenfeld, a researcher with mobile security firm Zimperium, has published today proof-of-concept code for zIVA — a kernel exploit that affects iOS 10.3.1 and previous versions.

The zIVA exploit code allows an attacker to gain arbitrary RW (Read Write) and root access. Apple has addressed the eight vulnerabilities at the heart of this exploit package in a security patch it released in May. One affects the IOSurface kernel extension and seven others affect the AppleAVE Driver kernel extension.
