Chinese Hackers were able to hack and jailbreak iPhone 13 Pro in 1 second

At the Tianfu Cup 2021 International Cybersecurity Competition, a Chinese team of “white hat hackers” managed to hack the flagship iPhone 13 Pro smartphone.

According to the source, a group of specialists from the Pangu Lab remotely jailbroken and gained access to the device. Remarkably, it took just one second to jailbreak the iPhone 13 Pro.

The hackers said they exploited several vulnerabilities of the iOS 15 operating system, after which they gained access to photos, contacts, applications and other data on the device. The engineers noted that in order to gain “remote” control over the iPhone, the user must follow a special link in the Safari browser.

For remote access to information on the iPhone 13 Pro, the Pangu Lab group received a cash prize of $ 330,000 (23,518,000 rubles). Traditionally, no details of the hack will be made public in the near future, and all information about the vulnerabilities found will be transferred to Apple so that the company can eliminate them and ensure the safety of user data.
