According to Motherboard, this code actually appeared first on Reddit late past year before being posted to Github, but was initially ignored due to the user's short posting history. The source code could enable jailbreakers and hackers to discover vulnerabilities in iOS and gain new, unauthorized ways to access the system.
The leak could also make it easier for security researchers to find and report flaws to Apple. Apple offers up to $200,000 (1 crore) for bugs found through its bounty program.
Apple source code for iBoot, the part of iOS that ensures a trusted boot of the iPhone's operating system, has purportedly been leaked to Github, giving hackers a deeper look at the inner workings of the Cupertino company's closed garden. This component verifies that iOS is loaded correctly every time and if the kernel is signed by Apple.
The code in question is for a version of iOS 9.3, which was released in spring 2016 and brought features such as Night Shift and various other improvements.
It's not the first time that someone has posted iBoot's code online; Motherboard also discovered that the code was published to the site Reddit by a user named "apple_internals" past year.
Jonathan Levin, who has written books on iOS and Mac OSX internals, described the leak as a "huge" deal on Twitter. "But by design the security of our products doesn't depend on the secrecy of our source code". Another security researcher told the scribe that they believe the code to be real as well. As Motherboard points out, this same code was posted on Reddit in September, but it went effectively unnoticed. The version that made its way onto Github came from iOS 9, but much of the code likely still exists in iOS 11. "It is not open-source". We now don't know who is behind the leak, and Apple declined Motherboard'srequest for comment.
It is very likely that the code may have been spotted and was circulating in the jailbreaking and hacking community.
