New Jailbreak Tool Works on Most iPhonesNew Jailbreak Tool Works on Most iPhones
The Unc0ver team has released a tool that works on iOS 11 and later, and exploits a vulnerability that was recently under attack.
March 2, 2021
Unc0ver, a team of hackers behind the jailbreak tool, released a new tool that works on nearly every iPhone model and exploits a flaw that Apple reported was under active attack last month.
The group says its new tool works on iOS 11 to iOS 14.3, which was rolled out in December 2020.
It reportedly includes an exploit for CVE-2021-1782, an iOS vulnerability in the kernel that allows an attacker to gain privilege escalation and affects devices including the iPhone 6 and later; iPad Air 2 and later; iPad mini 4 and later, and the 7th-generation iPad touch. In a tweet, a hacker with the Unc0ver team says the group wrote its own exploit for the vulnerability.
The flaw was under active attack at the time Apple deployed a patch in iOS 14.4 earlier this year, along with fixes for two other iOS zero-days. It did not provide details on attacks using the flaw. At the time, it gave "an anonymous researcher" credit for reporting each of the vulnerabilities.
