New Unc0ver jailbreak released: It affects iOS 13.5!

Unc0ver jailbreak

A group of hackers, researchers security and engineers, the Unc0ver, released one new jailbreak package for iOS devices.

By default, the Apple does not allow its users to have full control in iPhone them and other iOS Appliances. According to her, this is done for security reasons.

However, other ways have been discovered that help them users. Jailbreak is a custom type exploited software vulnerabilities in the functional system iOS, in order to give to users root access and full control of their device.

Yesterday, the Unc0ver team released it Unc0ver 5.0.0, the latest version of software jailbreak, which can give root users access and unlock Appliances iOS, even those that running the latest iOS version (iOS v13.5).

The new jailbreak version, Unc0ver 5.0.0, takes advantage of one zero-day vulnerability in the iOS operating system. Apple is not aware of this vulnerability.

Zero-day vulnerability was discovered by one of the members of the Unc0ver team. THE hacker this is known as Pwn20wnd.

According to Pwn20wnd, the new jailbreak software is the first, after five years, that can give root access on a device with the latest version of iOS. The latest, which could do something similar, was released in late 2014.

Previous jailbreaks usually used older vulnerabilities and were not effective for newer versions of iOS. Holders of devices who wanted to jailbreak in smartphone they had to not update them, so they could take advantage of the old vulnerabilities.

iOS

The new Unc0ver 5.0.0 jailbreak can be used by devices iOS, macOS, Linux and Windows. Instructions for use are available at Unc0ver jailbreak website.

Unc0ver said it tested the jailbreak on devices running iOS 11 to iOS 13.5. Jailbreak did not work on iOS 12.3 to 12.3.2 and 12.4.2 to 12.4.5.

Security experts suggest not to use jailbreaks as this could make iOS device vulnerable to malware and others attacks. However, Pwn20wnd claimed that new Unc0ver exploit is different from the previous ones because maintains Apple's security features intact and functional.

As is always the case (especially when the current version of the operating system is affected), Apple is expected to release a security update in the coming days to correct the zero-day vulnerability exploited by Unc0ver jailbreak.
