Apple has credited the PanguTeam with discovering three security vulnerabilities in iOS 8.

Earlier today, Apple posted a support document detailing the security content of iOS 8.1.1. In that document, PanguTeam is credited for finding a Dyld, Kernel, and Sandbox Profile vulnerability.

Dyld
● Available for: iPhone 4s and later, iPod touch (5th generation) and later, iPad 2 and later
● Impact: A local user may be able to execute unsigned code
● Description: A state management issue existed in the handling of Mach-O executable files with overlapping segments. This issue was addressed through improved validation of segment sizes.
● CVE-ID: CVE-2014-4455 : @PanguTeam

Kernel
● Available for: iPhone 4s and later, iPod touch (5th generation) and later, iPad 2 and later
● Impact: A malicious application may be able to execute arbitrary code with system privileges
● Description: A validation issue existed in the handling of certain metadata fields of IOSharedDataQueue objects. This issue was addressed through relocation of the metadata.
● CVE-ID: CVE-2014-4461 : @PanguTeam

Sandbox Profiles
● Available for: iPhone 4s and later, iPod touch (5th generation) and later, iPad 2 and later
● Impact: A malicious application may be able to launch arbitrary binaries on a trusted device
● Description: A permissions issue existed with the debugging functionality for iOS that allowed the spawning of applications on trusted devices that were not being debugged. This was addressed by changes to debugserver's sandbox.
● CVE-ID: CVE-2014-4457 : @PanguTeam

Since Apple has identified the exploits used by PanguTeam, the iOS 8.1.1 firmware update kills the Pangu8 jailbreak.

At this time it's unclear if the PanguTeam have any more exploits up their sleeve but you should follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, or RSS for updates.

I'd say the majority of new iOS features originated in the jailbreak community: widgets, notifications, foldlers, etc...

Nonsense. The majority of 'new' iOS features originated long before the iPhone ever existed. They were simply copied from older devices, such as Palm Pilots. they may have first appeared on iPhones that were jailbroken, as the jailbreak community was willing to be the guinea pigs testing the ideas on iOS. they were hardly original ideas.
