IOS 11 security flaw found by Google security researcher

IOS 11 security flaw found by Google security researcher

In a tweet, Beer asked his followers to keep their "research-only" devices on iOS 11.1.2 and not patch them with the latest security patch that was released by Apple as he has managed to discover a flaw. Project Zero works on discovering vulnerabilities and bugs in other's companies' software, and tracking down the issue on the iPhone's OS had to be posted online. Additionally, the security of the operating system has increased, which makes finding an iOS 11.1.2 exploit a rare occurrence.

Beer, who is part of the team working on Google's Project Zero, said that the tfp0 should work for all devices and that "adding more support should be easy".

Security vulnerabilities and patching is a cat and mouse game for every technology company out there and Apple has been one of the main players with its iOS mobile operating system. Although demand for jailbreaking has definitely fallen, this new breakthrough has restored interest in figuring out a way to crack iOS 11 and open the operating system up for more customization and control by a tech-savvy user base.

In addition to releasing the tool that will allow users to debug the iOS kernel-the core of the operating system, which is often inaccessible for users without a hack-Beer also detailed the exploit that hack jailbreakers salivating.

The Project Zero exploit uses an IOSurface bug, another kernel bug patched in iOS 11.2, and specially crafted kernel messages.

The release of the bug is not meant to allow users to create a jailbreak for iOS 11, even if that may result from the disclosure. No news about the jailbreak had been happening lately so, iPhone's users might hold on to wait for a little for an update. More details will be added as soon as any statements are out.
