“What concerns me along with others in the security community, on the other hand, is that if simply visiting a website by means of your iPhone can cause it to be jail broken, just imagine what else could hackers do through exploiting this vulnerability? Cybercriminals would be capable to create booby-trapped webpage’s that could if visited through an unsuspecting iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad owner run code on visiting devices with no the user’s permission,” Cluley wrote in a blog post.

“This must serve as a wake-up call for someone with a mobile device: Remote exploitation is real and here to stay,” he wrote in a blog post. “For now, these vulnerabilities are being used to jailbreak iPhones; on the other hand they could be used to do lots of other things to iPhones moreover their owners around the world.”
