Zerodium Pays $1 Million for iOS 9 Jailbreak

Category: General News
Posted: 04:16PM

Exploit acquisition company Zerodium published a $1 million bounty for an untethered iOS 9 jailbreak in September, seeking an "exclusive exploit for use against iPhone users." An exploit had been previously released by Chinese team Pangu but the exploit didn't qualify for the bounty as it was publicly available and not remotely executable. The bounty was claimed just "a few hours" before the end of the contest. Details about the exploit and the team behind it were not released other than the acknowledgement that it was "an exclusive, browser-based, and untethered jailbreak."
