Earlier this week someone posted the source code of one of the essential components of iOS on GitHub. Reported by Motherboard, the leaked source code gave potential hackers and security researchers a way to exploit/find vulnerabilities. It is also reported that the code might have made jailbreaking an iPhone easier. Apple later confirmed that the code is from iOS and is part of an old software version (iOS9). The leaked code was apparently of a component called ‘iBoot’, which is responsible to start the system. It ensures that the code that is being run originates from Apple and importantly is valid. In the aftermath, Apple sent a DMCA notice to GitHub and since then the link has been taken down.
