First iOS 11 Jailbreak May Be Coming Soon, Keep Your Devices On iOS 11.1.2 Or Earlier Version

According to Motherboard, Google's Project Zero is a team focused on finding software flaws in other companies, and the team is set to release an exploit it recently found in iOS 11. While the vulnerability has been patched with iOS 11.2, the exploit may allow for the first publicly available jailbreak for iOS 11.

Google, Apple's biggest rival is studying iOS vulnerabilities maybe sound a little weird. However, this is exactly what Project Zero plans to do, Ian Beer, a security researcher at the team, is a renowned iOS bug hunter, who says Google will soon be making the exploit public

Five of the 15 security issues fixed in the latest iOS 11.2 update are handled by Ian Beer. This week, a Tweet from Ian Beer said he'll share more information soon and recommends that those interested in kernel security for iOS 11 to keep a device on 11.1.2 or earlier version.

The so-called "tfp0" is stands for ‘task for pid 0,’ or the kernel task port, which gives you control of the core of the operating system.” It's predicted that Beer won’t share a “full, untethered jailbreak, meaning you will have to plug the phone into a computer to exploit it everytime it boots up.”

However, people in field of information security believe what Beer does release will allow for others to create a full jailbreak for iOS 11. Tencent’s Keen Lab researchers says that from Beer’s exploit it will “definitely be doable to make a complete jailbreak, especially for iPhone 6s and previous ones.”

Although we saw the jailbreak demo for iOS 11.1 last month, it has not yet been released publicly. As for the development of Ian Beer, developer Jonathan Levin and others have prepared resources to help interested parties use the tfp0 version.
