After a long 10-month wait, the PanGu team has recently released a jailbreak for iOS 9.3.3. Unfortunately this latest jailbreak tool is only working on 64-bit devices. The other drawback of this latest tool is that it is, what is being called, a "semi-untethered jailbreak."

If the device rebooted when you weren't near a computer, the device became completely unusable. This "semi-untethered" jailbreak is …

Whether you lose power, the phone spontaneously reboots or you accidentally install a Cydia package that requires reboot without knowing, the risk of getting stuck in a boot loop when you're away from your computer is enough to prevent many people from jailbreaking on iOS5.
Luckily there is a band-aid fix for this problem. It is a new Cydia package called SemiTether which will allow you to reboot your device …

A computer consultant is embarking where Apple has refused to go, adding a security measure known as ASLR to iPhones to make them more resistant to malware attacks.
Short for address space layout randomization, ASLR has been noticeably absent from all iOS devices since their inception, making possible the types of attacks that commandeered a fully patched iPhone at this year's Pwn2Own hacker contest. By randomizing the memory locations where injected code is executed, ASLR aims to thwart such exploits by making it impossible to know ahead of time where malicious payloads are located.
Starting with Windows Vista, Microsoft has …
