Pixel is a failure, and making the case every day for something like DTEK60 if you really care about a high-end phone with decent security.

"Just like Qihoo 360, a Chinese iPhone jailbreak team Pangu(which release million-dollar iOS jailbreaks for free) managed to hack into Safari running on MacOS Sierra in just 20 seconds. The hack resulted in gaining them root access to the app. Pangu won $80,000 for this exploit."

Why tell everyone? Surely it is better to keep this information private, else hackers everywhere will be trying the same thing!
Surely better to release this information only after a security patch has been released and installed on, say, 90% of end users phones?
Thats pretty much it. Just like always, downloading hijack app, and you are fuckt up. Though, he didnt need to open app, after download, already somehow received everything. Thats interesting. But this is how steam phishing linka worked 2 years ago and i was a victim of this.
That's amazing and even though this news, they have used UBUNTU to do such a kind of hack not Windows . LOL .. Well Done , love those guys.
I think they can hack windows 10 and WP easily so nothing is particularly safe.
How about Sailfish guys which privacy comes first,
I think companies should switch to Sailfish OS to have a peace of mind.
Someone Else, 12 Nov 2016What about the hacker who won $100,000 after successfully exploit Safari in MacOsHe's now in jail serving life, Happy Days!
A zero-day vulnerability usually means that exploits for a vulnerability are already available by the time the vulnerability becomes known. Jailbreaking of iOS usually does it this way. And that's why Apple is keep to plug these holes quickly, as the same vulnerability exploited by the jailbreak also can be used for malicious purposes.
Now lets see how looooooooooooooong it will take Google to patch their phone......
