Microsoft Applauds Ingenuity of Windows RT Jailbreak
Microsoft is giving props to security researcher clrokr who has developed a jailbreak for Windows RT allowing desktop applications to run on the ARM-based OS, reports The Verge.
A spokesperson was quick to "applaud the ingenuity of the folks who worked this out and the hard work they did to document it," in a statement to The Verge.
Microsoft says that running desktop apps on Windows RT is "not something the average user could, or reasonably would, leverage as it requires local access to a system, local administration rights and a debugger in order to work." The company also notes that it's not guarenteed that the vulnerability "will be there in future releases" of Windows RT suggesting they may patch the flaw in the future.
