With every new Apple device and every upgrade to its mobile operating system, the maze of anti-hacking measures built into the iPhone and iPad become more tortuous, and the game of defeating them becomes more elaborate. Evasi0n is no exception: According to David Wang, one of the evad3rs’ four developers, the program takes advantage of at least five distinct, new bugs in iOS’s code. (For reference, that’s one more than Stuxnet, the malware built by the NSA to destroy centrifuges in Iran’s nuclear enrichment facilities.)
