CVE-ID (CVE-2015-1087): TaiG Jailbreak Team

Thus, there is a high probability that the new version of iOS will not be jailbroken any time soon. It is not known if TaiG has other vulnerabilities in stock (after the release of iOS 8.2, they claimed that they did), but judging by the fact that there is no jailbreak and no, the case with the “hacking” is not very good. And ahead of June and the announcement of iOS 9 – perhaps hackers will find it more promising to focus on searching for vulnerabilities already in the new mobile operating system?
