As you might have heard, a recent Wikileaks report has revealed that for years, the CIA has kept a list of Security vulnerabilities and exploits that were related to smartphones across multiple platforms, Apple’s iOS included. Now Apple claims to have fixed most of them, and are in the processing of addressing the remaining one, but one can’t be blamed for feeling paranoid.
However the good news is that Apple is definitely looking to beef up its security because it has been revealed that the company has hired jailbreak expert and security researcher Jonathan Zdziarski. For those unfamiliar with his work, Zdziarski used to be part of the iPhone Dev Team and Chronic Dev Team and was known as “NerveGas” while in the jailbreaking community.
According to his announcement, “I’m pleased to announce that I’ve accepted a position with Apple’s Security Engineering and Architecture team, and am very excited to be working with a group of like minded individuals so passionate about protecting the security and privacy of others.”
