The Unc0ver hacker group has released a tool that allows jailbreaking in all versions of the iOS mobile iPhone operating system from 11 to the latest 13.5 on the basis of a vulnerability not known to the company. The jailbreak method allows you to break some of the operating system ‘s limitations by using a changed kernel to gain complete system control which can affect computer protection.
Apple put measures with iOS9 to use ‘jailbreak’ tools when it introduced the ‘rootless’ feature. Unc0ver has explained to Wired that its tool does not hinder the use of official Apple services such as iCloud, Apple Pay or iMessage, nor does it affect the privacy or protection of the user’s computer.
They also point out that their tool is based on an iOS kernel zero-day vulnerability, which has not been notified to the company and has no patch to correct it. A patch will depend on how long it takes Apple to identify the vulnerability.
The tool is available in versions from iOS 11 to 13.5, recently distributed by Apple.
