Avid fans of iOS jailbreaking have been eagerly anticipating the release of iOS 7.1/7.1.1 jailbreak, as the advent of iOS 7.1 update killed all existing exploits used in evasi0n7 jailbreak and thereby rendering it useless.
Those who have already updated their devices to iOS 7.1 can no longer enjoy the privilege of installing jailbreak tweaks and apps, as they lose jailbreak status soon after installing this update.
Furthermore, Apple has stopped signing firmware older than iOS 7.0 as it intends to withdraw all technical support for jailbroken iOS devices. As a result, you will no longer be able to downgrade your device from iOS 7.1 to iOS 7 or earlier iOS 6 firmware builds.
Users on a jailbreak subreddit have discovered a new kind of malicious software on iOS phones. The malware, which comes as a library called unfold.dylib, was uncovered after a Reddit user complained of crashes in Google Hangout and Snapchat.
The threat, which has been nicknamed “unflod baby panda,” is rumored to be of Chinese origin. There are several factors that support this theory. According to German mobile security firm SektionEins, the infection is digitally signed with an iPhone developer certificate under the name Wang Xin. Also, the malware, which steals the Apple ID and password of users, sends the information in plain text to 184.108.40.206, which appears to be a Chinese website from the error message it displays. However, these could all be fake. SektionEins even raised the possibility of certificate theft. So for now, no one knows where the malware came from and how it got into iOS devices.
