In today's video, we have some great news for the jailbreak community. Liang Chen of Keenlab team has announced recently on his Twitter account that Keenlab will demystify their previous iOS 11 Beta and iOS 10.3.x Jailbreak that has been presented at MOSEC 2017. The disclosure will take place at BlackHat 2018 and they're going to have 50 minutes in the Briefings in which they will present a talk called "KEENLAB IOS JAILBREAK INTERNALS: USERLAND READ-ONLY MEMORY CAN BE DANGEROUS".
It's unknown why Keenlab decided to keep their bugs secret up until now, but the presentation will definitely be a major one. The bugs they've used back then are going to be demonstrated for the first time and they will show how to use them to create a reliable kernel code execution from the iOS Application sandbox.
Although by now iOS 11 Beta 2 and iOS 10.3.x are no longer very important, this jailbreak targeted the latest version at that time. They were jailbreaking something that hasn't been jailbroken before using bugs that haven't been released before. It will be very informative for the jailbreak developers to see how Keenlab tackled the KPP and KTRR problem on the latest version at that time. All in all, this will be Keenlab's first jailbreak-related disclosure ever so I am happy to see something more than a simple demo.
