Latest BlackBerry PlayBook OS Fix Gets Jailbroken Again… Cat & Mouse Game Begins?


Latest BlackBerry PlayBook OS Fix Gets Jailbroken Again… Cat & Mouse Game Begins?

Published on | shared via feedly mobile

The thing with jailbreaks is that once you have your first then the rest of your code is suddenly open to poke around and find more soft spots to exploit. RIM just patched the Samba exploit that allowed the Dingleberry team to jailbreak/root the BlackBerry PlayBook. Now one of the devs of Dingleberry, @cmwdotme, has announced on twitter that the latest PlayBook OS has been jailbroken yet again.

According to cmwdotme this new exploit is "based on the "DenyUsers=root" on SSH and RIM clearing the .ssh directory on boot." My guess is we will see a QNX OS update coming right after a new Dingleberry tool is released at to exploit this new vulnerability.

So any bets on how long this cat and mouse game will last?

Apple Launches Web Tool to Deregister Phone Numbers from iMessage

Apple today released a new web tool for users to deregister their phone number from iMessage in the event they switched to a non-Apple device. To deregister a phone number from iMessage, users simply enter their phone number in Apple's web tool, receive a free text message containing a code, and submit the code to complete the process. Users who still have their original iPhone can also transfer their SIM card back to the device and go to Settings -> Messages to turn iMessage off. 

Users switching from an iPhone to another device were often unable to receive SMS messages from another iPhone due to their phone number still being linked to iMessage. These specific errors with iMessage have been a well-known issue since 2011, which is when the messaging service debuted with iOS 5. They were also made even more apparent this past May, where a server glitch caused widespread message delivery problems. Apple was even sued over the matter in a California court, although the company cla…

"Our goal is to deliver fantastic cross-platform apps that support the variety of email services people use today and help them accomplish more." Recode first reportedthat Microsoft would make its latest acquisition official today; the company is said to be paying over $200 million for Acompli.
