Comex has been hired by Apple as an intern

Well, this week has been a crazy one for to say the least. First the unexpected and abrupt resignation of Steve Jobs and now @comex has announced, via , that he wil begin an with Apple in two weeks. Of course, this was to be expected. Obviously, the best candidate for a job finding security holes is a person who has been finding them as a hobby for years now.


Of course, this is a double-edged sword. On one hand, I am happy for for getting an internship with Apple, he really deserves it. On the other hand, although it is not known what his job description entails, we can only assume that he will be in charge of finding security holes. This could mean tragedy for the jailbreaking scene since may find and patch security holes before future iOS firmwares even release, making it even more difficult for the remaining hackers to find exploits.

Also, it goes without saying, that Comex will be contractually obligated to not reveal any security holes to the public, so the days of Comex making tools are over.


How do you feel about this announcement?
