It has been only two weeks since iPhone 7 hit the stores across numerous parts of the world and a teenage hacker has already discovered how to exploit the loopholes existing within its software security.
Less than 24 hours
Luca Todesco with an anonymous username of qwertyoruiopz has already discovered how to jailbreak the iPhone 7 with iOS 10 updated. Moreover, this teenager also claimed, the whole process took him less than even 24 hours.
Good news for Apple as the hacker has no intention to reveal the details yet; waiting for Apple to release at least one patch even though he bragged about his brilliant technique on Twitter and Youtube.
Todesco also claimed that the whole process was not simple at all and he has already decided to give away his findings to Apple’s bug bounty, but he’s still in a dilemma.
They definitely made my life harder. The iPhone 7 is a step in the right direction. Obviously, it’s not 100 percent secure – like nothing else is.
It is highly likely that Apple will soon catch up with the shortcomings by fixing the bug the teenage hacker exploited for jailbreaking the iPhone 7. In addition to it, this teenager added,
“They can raise the effort required, but there will always be someone willing to invest enough time to do it.”
