Update Blocks IOS 6 Jailbreak

Apple has released an update for iOS. The new 6.1.3 update fixes six bugs and thereby prevents the iPad and iPhone can be hacked with the Evasi0n jailbreak. In addition, the lockscreen leak poem.

With Evasi0n allows users to bypass software restrictions of Apple's operating system and its iPhone and iPad completely according to your own taste. Also can be installed apps from outside the App Store. This jailbreak uses a five bugs in the old iOS 6 versions. These bugs all have to be present for a successful installation of the jailbreak.

One of the bugs was in the time zone settings of iOS. This is resolved with iOS 6.1.3, so the jailbreak can no longer happen. David Wang, one of the creators of Evasi0n, confirmed the workaround for this bug. Wang previously been reported that the bug was fixed after the beta version of iOS 6.1.3 was facing.

Evasi0n was released in early February and is installed on 18 million devices running iOS, reports Forbes. These figures come from the Cydia app store for devices that have a jailbreak. Cydia saw the last time 18.2 million unique iOS 6 devices come by, including 13.8 million iPhones, 3.4 million iPads and 1.1 million iPod touchs.


This jailbreak became by far the most used, especially because Apple only after more than a month, with an update. The Jailbreakme 3 was found in 2011 at around 2 million iOS devices. But then it took only nine days before Apple had solved the abused bugs. This update came quickly because of the great risk that malware was lurking by the leaks.

Apple is sporty and displays in the documentation for the 6.1.3 update that four of the six fixed bugs are detected by evad3rs, the group of hackers responsible for the Evasi0n jailbreak.

Perhaps even more important than blocking the Evasi0n jailbreak is the solution for the annoying lockscreen leak. This allows unauthorized able to access the contacts and photos stored on the iOS device.
