    I know that iOS 8 isn't jailbroke yet, but this question has been bothering me quite a bit. Once a jailbreak is out for the iPhone 6 and 6+ do you think people might find a way to modify Apple Pay (In a malicious way)? For example the possibility that a malicious nfc tag could be made to trick tap to pay. That thought has worried me a little bit.

    I dont intend on doing this, but this just overall worries me about the possible security of the Apple Pay system.

    This isn't really entirely a Jailbreak question, but just a question that involves jailbreaks, Im not sure where I would put this thread other than here.

    It wouldn't do anything. You'd still need to scan your fingerprint to authorize a transaction.
