Chinese hacking crew Pangu Team has reportedly cracked Apple’s (AAPL) latest mobile operating system iOS 9, allowing users to load unauthorized applications and enhance the functionality of their phones.
Pangu Team released their jailbreak tool, Pangu 9, today, and the website Motherboard reports multiple users already have it working on iOS versions 9.0 through 9.0.2.
If you don’t know what jailbreaking is, you probably don’t want to try it. Jailbreaking breaks much of the security of iOS, and while it promises to let you load up your device with a slew of free apps, many of them are pirated or contain malware.
In fact, all recent reports of compromised iPhones and iOS malware have been specifically targeted at jailbroken devices. Users with a stock install of iOS are far less likely to be hacked because Apple locks down so much of the platform.
If you’re a reckless soul and still want to jailbreak your device then head over to pangu.io. But don’t say we didn’t warn you.
