In today's video, we're discussing Ian Beer's latest release. A PoC for the CrashReporter vulnerability patched in iOS 11.3.1. The vulnerability affects both macOS and iOS but we're only interested in the iOS aspect of it. The vulnerability PoC has been released by Ian Beer just a few hours ago and it seems to be compatible with iOS 11.2 and newer all the way up to iOS 11.3.1.
Although this is not a kernel vulnerability, it is still very useful for jailbreak purposes because if exploited properly it has the potential to give a sandbox escape which is definitely something we can use for a jailbreak. A lot of vulnerabilities have been released lately and that is a good thing because the more we have the easier it is to put something together.
The vulnerability discovered by Ian Beer of Google Project Zero is usable in a jailbreak context if we can exploit it. For the moment we still need to wait for a jailbreak developer to take a look at it and poke around with it to know exactly what value it has for the jailbreak community, but still, a cool vulnerability.
