The evad3rs hacking team has released a long-awaited jailbreak for Apple devices running iOS 7, but the release generated a backlash over its bundling of a Chinese app store instead of the more popular Cydia app directory.
An iOS 7 jailbreak for iPhone, iPad and iPod is already in the works folks! With iOS 7 GM barely more than a few hours old, we saw @planetbeing, member of the Evad3rs jailbreak team, tweeting some very hopeful messages about the team's progress on an iOS 7 jailbreak.
L33tdawg: Online registration is open and early bird rate ends on the 25th of July.
The Evad3rs will be teaching two technical training courses on iOS Exploitation at HITB2013KUL for those interested.
The Hack in the Box Security Conference takes place from the 14th till the 17th of October 2013 at the InterContinental Hotel, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
L33tdawg: HD video from all talks / presentations at #HITB2013AMS will be released on the HITBSecConf YouTube Channel.
Last week, we attended the 4th edition of Hack in the Box Amsterdam. During the security conference, the members of the world-renowned Evad3rs team, the ones responsible for developing iPhone jailbreaks, held a press conference.
We’ve filmed the entire press conference, so if you’re interested in learning what the guys said, check out the video.
We may see a jailbreak before iOS 7 after all, according to Pod2g, the French hacker who is responsible for the discovery of various exploits used in iOS jailbreak tools.
Some of the most noteworthy names on the iOS jailbreak scene are present at the Hack in the Box 2013 conference in Amsterdam, including David Wang (@planetbeing), Nikias Bassen (@pimskeks), and the hacker famously known as Pod2g (Cyril).
After reading stories about iOS exploits fetching as much as half a million dollars on the black market for software vulnerabilities, you might think the hackers are pretty enticed to make a pitch to the government, the army, or other parties who might be interested in buying.
But they’re not.
L33tdawg: Online registration closes on the 7th of April, though walk in registrations will still be accepted (do expect to queue for a bit if you choose this option). See you guys in Amsterdam!
All good jailbreaks must come to an end.
Late last week Apple released an update for iOS to developers in beta that prevents the use of the popular jailbreak software evasi0n, according to one of evasi0n’s creators who tested the patch over the weekend, David Wang.
