In today's video, I have pretty good news for those of you waiting for an iOS 12 or #iOS 11.4.1 #Jailbreak. Just hours ago, two security researchers have released some new Kernel and Safari (WebKit) exploits / PoCs for iOS 12 and iOS 11.4.1 (and iOS 11.4) that are very powerful and indeed usable in a jailbreak for these versions. Both vulnerabilities are very serious.
In case of the iOS 12 one, the vulnerability is located in WebKit / Safari which means that if I am not mistaken, it could theoretically be leveraged for a possible iOS 12 Safari Jailbreak which would not require an IPA or signing every 7 days. Just like JailbreakMe from back in the days. Definitely a good break from having to sign every week or to use signing services like Ignition for your jailbreak application.
In the case of the iOS 11.4.1 / 11.4 exploit, it is much more powerful than this since it is a kernel exploit. The exploit can be used to escape the iOS Sandbox which is a pretty huge step towards a full Jailbreak. The authors have published a write-up describing very well where the vulnerability is and what triggers it. They've also stated that it is usable in an iOS 11.4.1 Jailbreak but their PoC (Proof of concept) code is just for triggering a kernel panic, so a jailbreak team would have to build on top of the vulnerability for a proper jailbreak. Still, very very useful. Pretty good news for the jailbreak community.
