    Default Dev Threatens to Release SHAtter Source


    In what increasingly appears to be a case of mistaken identity, a Dutch developer has threatened to release the source code of the SHAtter exploit, depriving the jailbreak community of a valuable tool. After the developer of TwitPanic, @iHaz3, had his site brought down apparently by a DDOS attack, he threatened to release the SHAtter source as some kind of revenge, but has since held off on carrying out the threat.

    The story can be traced following @iHaz3's Twitter feed. TwitPanic.com was crashed by what the developer believed was a DDOS attack set up by @ih8sn0w after he and @iHaz3 had "issues." @iHaz3 then tweeted "TwitPanic.com is attacked by a organized DOSS hit......next week SHATTer will be posted on twitter." The jailbreak community reacted with confusion, since SHAtter - an exploit allowing unsigned execution of code in the S5L8930 bottom that could only be defeated by a new hardware design - was developed by pod2g and p0sixninja of the Chronic Dev team, not iH8sn0w. It could be that @iHaz3 was confused because the iH8sn0w hacker he believed responsible for the DDOS had previously provided the SHAtter source to him.

    As the day rolled on, @chronic engaged @iHaz3 in conversation and attempted to explain that @iH8sn0w had nothing to do with SHAtter, and so releasing it would do nothing to hurt him while at the same time burning a valuable exploit which has been held in reserve since @geohot came out with limera1n. Eventually, @iHaz3 agreed to a cooling-off period, which would expire sometime today, but he has since heard from his hosting company that they have the identity of the attacker and are pursuing legal action. So, hopefully, all this will blow over.

    ....I really hope that douche bag doesn't release the sHAtter exploit.... This guy should be shunned from the JB community.

    What, is this guy 5yrs old. Stop the bickering, and just do whats best for the community. The important thing is keeping apple from keeping control of our devices.

    Hurting the community should have nothing to do with some meaningless fight. Terrible. Thank goodness chronic was there.

    i'd be very upset as well. It's been reported that $160,000 of damage was caused from this organized attack.

    but it still wouldn't be a good idea of releasing the SHAtter exploit.

    Come on people. Really? What I see here is childish. You said something so I'm going to tell mommy on you. If this goof releases shatter it does nothing but help apple patch that exploit that shatter uses. Get your thumb out of your mouth, stop crying cause your just making yourself look bad infront of us JB useres

    Drama in jailbreaking? How did this happen? Maybe he should just release his own stuff if he's so P-Od.

    This guy is stupid. He's only helping apple, but maybe that is what he wants. I agree he is being childish. He can't play with the big boys so he throws a tantrum and breaks the game. Boo hoo.
