It’s been a while that we hear anything about Pangu jailbreak team since the iOS 9.0 – 9.0.2 jailbreak in October, despite a recent sketchy rumor on iOS 9.1 and 9.2 jailbreak.
Today, the Pangu Team announced something interesting on their official Weibo (Chinese Microblogging Platform). They are recruiting more mobile security experts into their Pangu Research Lab. Below is the original passage and the English translation respectively.
“In 2016, there will be a number of research vacancies in Pangu Laboratory. We expect more talented researchers to join If your expertise is in mobile security research, vulnerability discovery and application, or reverse engineering, we hope to move forward with you together to create a “Mobile Security Research Galacticos”, for the development and technological enhancement of information security community. We are here waiting for you…”
The famous jailbreak team has also taken the opportunity to promote their history and contributions to the mobile security including their footprints in various mobile security conferences around the world, the exclusive iOS 9 jailbreak release, engagement with training centers on iOS security research, and interestingly, XcodeGhost malware checking tool and submission of vulnerability reports to Apple which are being considered as efforts of social responsibilities. Full details are shown below.
So what’s your take on Pangu’s open recruitment of mobile security experts, but not like the TaiG team’s call for vulnerability? Does it bring a positive impact to future iOS jailbreaking? We would love to hear from you in the comment section.
