Beware of Greenpois0n iOS Jailbreak Tool

greenpois0n iOS Jailbreak tool

  GreenPois0n jailbreak is the most awaited tool for Jailbreaking iOS 4.1/ 4.2 and iPhone users. But just beware of the fake site with same name as greenp0ison but using a different domain. Costin Raiu of ThreatPost also issued a warning to all those who are interesting jailbreaking their iDevices by saying that sources purporting to offer jailbreak tools for iOS 4.1 are, in fact, malicious

  Earlier this month, a hacker going by the handle "pod2g" announced that by he is working on a new exploit that would allow the jailbreaking of all existing iPhones through a vulnerability in the bootrom. Due to its nature, this will be extremely hard for Apple to fix in software, if not impossible at all. This means it will be possible to jailbreak all existing iPhones and iPads through a simple exploit, regardless of the OS version of their own hardware. This is indeed a groundbreaking announcement.

However, till now there is no exploit available from "pod2g" to jailbreak iOS 4.0.2 and iOS 4.1. Users of iPhone 4G's with these versions of iOS are pretty much unable to do anything, unless they downgrade the OS to an earlier version.

Cyber-criminals are now keen to take advantage of this phenomenon, releasing fake "Greenpois0n" trojans - which is the presumable name of the new jailbreaking tool which is to be released any day now.

If the "pod2g" exploit turns out to be valid, that will no doubt be announced widely. Until then, stay away of the fake jailbreaking tools and web sites.
