The new IOS 8.4.1 update is already here. So, what is this going to be all about? Well, the most important characteristic of this update is its anti-jailbreak feature. If you are using an iPhone, which made friends with the TaiG team, then you should be aware of this change.
Otherwise, all of your apps and everything else, which work, thanks to a jailbreak will be in trouble. So, what can you do about it? Well, you can just avoid this update, and your jailbreak will be just fine. However, there is a bigger story in the background. Can you dare to guess what it is?
For what is worth, one serious rumor has it that the IOS 8.4.1 update was a rehearsal for the main thing called IOS 9. Apparently, this latest IOS will be jailbreak-proof. This is a little bit too easy to say. Let us wait what TaiG team has to say about this tempting challenge. Can it be done?
We have no other choice, than to wait and see for ourselves. Maybe Apple just had enough of this jailbreak thing. Now, they want to end it with the new IOS. Well, good luck with that. There are quite a few jailbreak experts, who will hardly resist this challenge. Let the jailbreak games begin.
The notorious, but extremely respectful TaiG hacker group, which specializes for the iOS jailbreak thing, was able to deliver its “solution” for the newest iOS 8.4, only a few hours after its official release. So, how are we supposed to feel about this news? We definitely not support these kinds of activities.
However, we also cannot neglect a simple fact. This group has a certain level of “hacker’s ethics”, if you accept that there is such a thing in the cyber-underground. So far, this group has not compromised its “good” name in the hacker community. Yet, they are helpless, when it comes to “repacking”.
Other hacker groups often “borrow” jailbreaks delivered by the cyber boys and girls from TaiG, but with an “addition” of a malicious nature, such as malware or a virus. Apple on the other side wants to assure us that the jailbreak trouble will not be possible with the iOS 9.
And, here we are, at the crossroads of numerous and potentially hazardous jailbreaks. What you are going to do with your iPhone? Well, it all comes down to your personal choices and even more personal consequences, you have to face with or without the TaiG hacker group.
What is the use of the new OS, if there are no security improvements? This is a golden, and yet unwritten rule, in the mobile world. With this shiny thought in mind, what can we expect from the new iOS 9? Well, for what is worth we are going to make a few wild guesses, based on some serious rumors.
For the time being, we have a fingerprint scanner and a four-characters-code at our disposal. These 10,000 possible combinations are obviously not enough for the busy little bees in Apple. How about a million of potential combinations of a new six-character-code? This sounds like a plan.
Sometimes is good to have your reputation at stake. Why? Because, you will work really hard to create one hell of a tough system for hackers to crack. Yes, you care about your users, but at the end of the day, it all comes down to your shiny logo, which you need to protect at all costs.
OK Apple, you have certainly caught our attention. You want us to feel safe and invulnerable. Then, we have no other choice than to put your name to the rigorous tests. We will see what was this, an intriguing ad or a serious decision to set new standards in the cyber security field.
