Stefan Esser, a security researcher known as i0n1c, is alleging that someone close to the evad3rs stole a jailbreak exploit and sold it to a private buyer. I0n1c is the hacker behind the untethered jailbreak for iOS 4.3.2. He also jailbroke the iPad 3 on iOS 5.1.

Yesterday morning Esser tweeted, "So apparently someone around the @evad3rs stole a jailbreak from them and sold it to a private buyer."

When asked by iDesignTimes about the allegation, evad3rs member pod2g said, "That's complete bullsh--." He also noted that "the jailbreak stuff is moving on, but slowly."

Esser responded saying, "LOL so a jailbreak news site asked the @evad3rs if someone stole their JB and they say no. How would they know if someone copied it?"

"The only way the @evad3rs could be sure that no one stole their JB exploits is if they have nothing at all to steal."

i0n1c also emphasized that he said someone around the team stole it, not a member themselves.

"I said someone around the @evad3rs stole it. I never said it was a member."

Even if the a jailbreak was stolen from the evad3rs and sold to a private buyer, it's unlikely that the buyer would be looking to share it with Apple. However, if a jailbroken device is found in the wild, Apple could examine it to close the vulnerabilities for future firmware versions.

Let's say they had a jailbreak for iOS 7 or 6.13 and up and it was stolen, I'd say screw it, release it, and then the sale of the stolen jailbreak becomes worthless and the buyer comes back after the seller. Personally I think it's BS and they have nothing worth stealing or posting.

Stolen means source-code copied. It can be harmful for the next JB when the "source-code" is shared to specific people, e.g. Apple

Go android and your worries are over. No longer waiting for jailbreak to come which is what most people hate. But my reason is that apple products are shit anyway, toooooooo restrictive.

Exactly. Why be happy (but somewhat restricted) when you can tear your hair out (as freely as you like). Android is such a wonderful platform. Developers agree. Not.

Yeah, go get an Android and get virus's, trojans, malware, easily hacked, credit card information stolen off NFC... because Apple products are shit says I. Since I can't afford an iPhone and hate Apple products and have no life so I spend all my time wandering the web looking for Apple related news and then post comments that subtly hint at how pathetic my life is since I can't afford an iPhone so I shit on everything except the crap I have. Derrrrrrrrrrrrr
