  • 1.1.1 could be about to go down
    It looks like the dev team is up to something. I have been following them over at IRC and it looks like Mobile Safari on both the touch and the iPhone are suffering from a one year old TIFF exploit.

    Basically, opening a carefully crafted TIFF image will crash mobile safari, causing a buffer overflow and allow for arbitrary code execution. This same exploit was used more than 1.5 years ago to crack the PSP firmware.

    UPDATE:
    Ladies And Gentlemen, it looks like we have code execution. Hooray!!

      I am very curious about how this image is capable of crashing a browser. Very interesting.

      Well, my browser seems to be crashing by itself quite nicely...

      you have it all wrong.... that's not a crash, that's Apple determining that whatever website you were trying to look at violates some agreement they have with some obscure tech company...... so they have to brick Safari to keep you in line.

      Don't f*** with Steve Jobs..... he knows what's best for you.... go eat your iMeals (using only iSalt and iPepper), drive your iCar (iGas only), and go to sleep in your iBed knowing that the tough decisions in life have been made for you by God On Earth.



      Ok, so as a disclaimer I just want to head off anyone who may be butthurt by this post...... it was made in total jest, it was my lame attempt at humor. I love my iPhone and my Mac Pro, but I'm not particularly happy at Apple's draconian stance towards 3rd party apps on the iPhone or DRM on music I already paid for.



      Oh, and it just occurred to me....... does anyone here think that the reason the Apple browser is called "Safari" is due to a fascination with the Beach Boys?

      lol, you're right, the safari browser doesn't need a carefully crafted tiff image to crash itself, its perfectly capable of doing that on its own with any old website.

      Possibly, but I think its a clever play on "Explorer"

      What’s going on my new fellow iphone friends? I am new to this unlock software but my younger brother bought an iphone a week ago and unlcoekd it. I was amazed by his ability to crack the phone so I went out and purchased an Iphone from my local apples store but unfortunately my phone came with the 1.1.1 firmware and my brothers came with 1.02 fw. From what he has told me, there is no jailbreak available yet for the new firmware. I purchased the phone with my credit card and have 14 days to return the phone and will have to pay a 10% restocking fee, so I will lose 40 dollars by returning it since I opened it.
      Do you guys think I should hold on to the phone and wait for these super-mac geniuses’ to develop a crack or return the phone. Where do you guys think would be the beast place to hear of new software that unlocks the phone.. how much longer do you guys think it will take? I have had the phone for one day so far so I have 13 days left to return it… I really shouldn’t be concerned about the waiting time for the software because I need to collect money to pay for the phone first which will take me a week of work…hehe stupid credit-cards!
