Anyone notice how the impact description for almost all of them is useless. "May access protected parts of the OS" yea? Well computers give us that for free, at least PCs do, if we bought the phone and OS from you we have every right to access ANY part of the OS.

The OS, namely "iOS", is protected to inhibit malware, spyware and adware. Be glad that Apple is constantly patching and updating their OS when vulnerabilities and exploits are discovered. If they didn't, iOS would be just as crappy as Android. Think before you post.

Furthermore, you don't buy the OS. You buy the hardware and the right to use the software. It is still Apple's property. The same goes with any software you may use. You don't own it...you use it.

Judging by YOUR post, you need to be the one "thinking before you post" ! How do you think IOS has achieved an operating system that can even partially be used on a closed source platform? It's because of jailbreaks that allow full system access that Apple has come up with the majority of their "cool" new features and that great updated UI that they now have, according to iphone fans of course. Apple has "borrowed" the majority of all of the tweaks and UI changes that jailbreakers made while the device was "vulnerable" , therefore allowing Apple to keep creating such an "awesome" mobile OS that is basically the same damn OS since it was first introduced on the original iphone, years ago! So keep using those pages full of square icons and keep having to touch the screen 10 damn times just to perform the most basic tasks that an Android user has been doing for years... Closed source very well may keep out a lot of malicious attacks by viruses and such, but if you knew even a little bit about computers you would already be able to handle the task of keeping your system safe and virus free, but you choose Apple to do the thinking for you. Lol Open source platforms allow full development and most importantly, full control, over YOUR devices hardware! It's the software, that Apple designs, that truly eliminates the possibility of fully utilizing the hardware that consumers OWN and should have the right to fully make use of. Hell, you paid good money for Apple to hold your hand while you use YOUR devices! Have fun with that, I like to be free to choose whose hand that touches mine. ;)

RE: iSheep Herder; Who said anything about MY knowledge and level of computer and system management? I was speaking toward the general public who, more likely than not, do not have the skills that I and apparently you have. I have been a huge proponent of jailbreaking, and still am...as long as a few security measures after the process are done...first and foremost being downloading a terminal app and changing the default root password. I agree that jailbreaking has added more features and ideas toward the advancement of iOS than the development teams at Apple themselves. Apple does not "hold my hand". My main desktop OS is a Linux flavor. But the truth is that most people don't have the knowledge required to keep a Linux-based or Windows OS badware free.therefore

Ugh...Therefore, Apple's Unix-based software is the best choice for those people because it offers the user-friendly, pleasant experience of whichever device they may be using, it simply does what it is supposed to do when you tell it to do so. That is the caveat of Android. Though you may be able to have more control, after the badware takes hold...you have limited functionality. Nevermind that it is marketed towards lower-income people, either. Do you really think those people have the system administration skills that you and I have? The average person over 30 most definitely does not, and of the younger groups, the percentage of people that don't far outweigh the ones that do. So in summary, yes...think before YOU post, and think beyond yourself, and realize that there are many, many people out there that need their "hand held". and when it comes to a companion software to guide you through the badware-laden internet of today, Apple is the best guide available.

One more thing, Mr. Smart Guy. If you know so much about computers and system administration, I don't believe you would have used the term "virus". Those are a thing of the past. Malware, spyware, adware, rootkits, trojans and ransomware took their place long ago. So continue using your Android device thinking you are in control, and when your information is stolen, blame yourself...because you "wanted control", and didn't want your "hand held"...LMFAO!!!! XD

Ugh Apple! Constantly fixing this exploits!!
PHUKAI - August 15, 2015 at 12:42am
If it wasn't for this, the exploits would make the phone unuseable and worse, unfixable maybe

Oh no! Say it ain't so. How dare Apple close security holes? I want my iPhone to be as insecure as possible.

It was expected. This ain't no cat in mouse game anymore for those who think it is because the hackers tell Apple about the vulnerabilities. And it's on purpose so the jailbreak developers find even more holes.

And so the cat and mouse game continues

I pass gas in your general direction.
