Apple iOS iBoot Secure Bootloader Code Leaked Online

Lawyers for Apple called for the source code to be removed from GitHub.

Apple has taken legal action to remove from GitHub its source code for iBoot after the boot ROM chip code showed up there this week, Naked Security reports.

iBoot, which is enabled when an iOS device is powered on and prior to the OS kernel load, ensures the integrity of the iOS device software.

Lawyers for Apple issued a takedown order under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), and the DCMA notice now replaces the code dump on GitHub. It's unclear how or why the source code was uploaded online.
