A group of hackers released a new jailbreaking software for Apple mobile devices (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch) running iOS 6.0 and above. Called "Evasi0n," the software was published online on Monday afternoon and quickly reached in the top three spots of Twitter's trending terms in the U.S.
Evasi0n also works on the iPhone 5, which a previous jailbreak, Redsn0w, did not support, as CNET reported.
Lookout, a mobile software security company, published a blog post on Monday shortly after Evasi0n was released warning users to change the default password on their Apple device's root account after jailbreaking to avoid being succeptible to hackers.
"Jailbreaking phones comes with added risk," Lookout told TPM in a statement via Twitter. "If you do it, be aware of and plan for that," later adding "Generally, don't jailbreak [yo]ur phone unless [yo]u have experience securing systems."
