How a Low-Level Apple Employee Leaked Some of the iPhone's Most Sensitive Code
This is how a small group of friends lost control of the leaked iBoot source code. The story behind one of Apple's most embarrassing leaks.
On Wednesday, an anonymous person published the proprietary source code of a core and fundamental component of the iPhone's operating system.
A user named "ZioShiba" posted the closed source code for iBoot - the part of iOS responsible for ensuring a trusted boot of the operating system - to GitHub, the internet's largest repository of open source code.
