    Hackers successfully hacked an iPhone using a charger. p0sixninja says that this hack could enable innocent people to develop a tool that could be used to jailbreak any device running future versions of iOS. Maybe even any version.

    Note: For all I know, the loophole they used may only be available on an iPhone, which is the device the hackers hacked. That is why I am using the iPhone prefix.

    My guess is now that Apple knows of this issue, they might develop a fix to prevent this kind of hacking.

    That's what Im afraid of too.
    Wish they would had hold off till ios 7 was out to release that info.
    Now they could patch it with the next ios release.

    This could be fixed in an IOS update.. but this seems like it would be considered more of a hardware loophole if its done via the charger.
