Switch default apps on iPhone or iPad for better security and privacy

Modern operating systems, both on the desktop and on mobile devices, include plenty of “stock apps”—apps provided by default so you can use your device without needing a lot of third-party software. You get an email app, a calendar, a web browser, a messaging app, and more. This wasn’t always the case; I remember when I needed to buy an ema

In-the-wild iOS Exploit Chain 4

Posted by Ian Beer, Project ZeroTL;DRThis exploit chain supported iOS 12-12.1, although the two vulnerabilities were unpatched when we discovered the chain in the wild.

Posted by Ian Beer, Project ZeroTL;DRThis chain targeted iOS 11-11.4.1, spanning almost 10 months. This is the first chain we observed which had a separate sandbox escape exploit.The sandbox escape vulnerability was a severe security regression in libxpc, where refactoring lead to a < bounds check becoming a != comparison against the boundary value.

In-the-wild iOS Exploit Chain 2

Posted by Ian Beer, Project ZeroTL;DRThis was an exploit for a known bug class which I had been auditing for since late 2016.

Interestingly, I also independently discovered and re

In-the-wild iOS Exploit Chain 1

This suggests that this group had a capability against a fully patched iPhone fo
