JailbreakMe 3.0 Could Bring $250000 to Comex
I think that every iPhone and iPad user knows iOS hacker Comex. His real name is Nicholas Allegra. He is also known as developer of Spirit and JailbreakMe 2.0 jailbreak for iOS 3.1.2, and Saffron (JailbreakMe 3.0) jailbreak tool for the iPad 2 running iOS 4.3.3.
This jailbreaking tool was the only tool that could jailbreak iPad 2. And it had been working for several months. JailbreakMe 3.0 had big popularity among iOS users.
However some people can dislike iOS hackers because of their illegal activity. But how such company as Apple can see all weaknesses in iOS. And that is not the only story.
Many companies and even US government are looking for such people who break OS or database or others secrets. If they find them they hire them. Also some hackers do it specifically to be hired. This helps companies to fix their shortcomings and drawbacks. And many do so.
But let’s talk about Comex and his exploit JailbreakMe 3.0. There is an information that many agencies want to pay $250 000 for this exploit. The broker known as Grusq who finds hackers and hook them up with agencies that want to buy their (hackers) exploits. Let’s see what Grusq said about this:
You’re basically selling commercial software, like anything else. It needs to be polished and come with documentation. The only difference is that you only sell one license, ever, and everyone calls you evil.
Also it isn’t the secret that exploits for iOS are more expensive than others. Take a look at this picture:
As you see it is a very good busyness and if you find some way to jailbreak iOS then first go to Apple and they pay you for your exploit. I don’t know if Comex accept the offer but I think that it is a good deel.
