The iPhone hacking community has already discovered two working exploits for the baseband 05.12.01 that is bundled in iPhone OS 3.1.3.
And we reported yesterday that Geohot, the iPhone hacking expert who had released popular jailbreaking and unlocking tools like blackra1n, blacksn0w and more had discovered another working exploit for baseband 05.12.01 that was bundled with iPhone OS 3.1.3.
MuscleNerd announced on his Twitter page:
"Ha just re-found crashing command yellowsn0w was originally going to use before +stkprof. Apple fixed it *accidentally* in 02.28.00.
some commands have come and gone. some command holes have come and gone. this command has come and gone but not the hole:)
it still seems accidental though 🙂 there are no overt signs that they've closed the hole, but the byte alignment kills it"
He goes on to add:
"Apple has built in this bizzare intepreter into their baseband.
Why is it in production units? Fun!"
It is still not clear if they’re talking about the same exploit or different ones.
