Apple reconoce a evad3rs y otros hackers de la escena del Jailbreak en la lista de bugs de seguridad solucionados en iOS 7.1

Apple reconoce a evad3rs en varias ocasiones en la larga lista de problemas de seguridad que corrigen en iOS 7.1. Es reconfortante ver que no tienen ningún inconveniente en reconocer la ayuda de reconocidos hackers de la escena del Jailbreak para poder tapar agujeros de seguridad. Gracias a eso, iOS 7.1 como sabemos no es vulnerable al Jailbreak de Evasi0n 7… al menos por ahora. No es la primera vez que Apple reconoce hackers como crédito del descubrimiento de vulnerabilidades de iOS.

Crédito de evad3rs

El grupo de evad3rs aparece hasta en cuatro ocasiones, y se menciona también a Stefan Esser, más conocido como i0n1c, autor del descubrimiento de importantes vulnerabilidades que dieron lugar a versiones de las herramientas Redsn0w, Sn0wbreeze y PwnageTool que permitían hacer el Jailbreak untethered a varias versiones de iOS 4.3.

No deja de ser irónico que gracias a las investigaciones del Jailbreak iOS es mucho más seguro hoy en día, pero también hay muchos otros desarrolladores no relacionados con temas de Jailbreak que han conseguido encontrar una cantidad considerable de problemas en iOS 7, y todos están citados en la lista de cambios de seguridad (en inglés) que os dejamos después del salto. Aparecen por ejemplo el equipo de seguridad de Google Chrome, la Zero Day Initiative de HP o Min Zheng, Hui Xue, y Dr. Tao (Lenx) Wei, investigadores que consiguieron encontrar una manera de registrar todo lo que se hacía en la pantalla con un proceso en segundo plano utilizando el mejorado sistema de multitarea de iOS 7.
