iOS 6.1.3 Kills Evasi0n Jailbreak [Warning]

Yesterday we reported to you that Apple released iOS 6.1.3 for iPhone/iPad and iPod Touch which come with a lot of important bugs fixes and Japan map improvements, but what the hackers have spotted right now is iOS 6.1.3 contains patches for multiple exploits used in the popular iOS 6.x jailbreak.

Just a few moments ago, MuscleNerd the popular hacker appeared to the public and confirmed our fears on his official Twitter account, he has just announced that Apple has credited the evad3rs with the discovery of 4 of the 6 security flaws that were patched in today’s update. So jailbreakers should stay far away…

Here’s one of the exploits mentioned in the security briefing:
Kernel Available for: iPhone 3GS and later, iPod touch (4th generation) and later, iPad 2 and later Impact: A local user may be able to determine the address of structures in the kernel Description: An information disclosure issue existed in the ARM prefetch abort handler. This issue was addressed by panicking if the prefetch abort handler is not being called from an abort context. CVE-ID CVE-2013-0978 : evad3rs
And I am not really very shocked by hearing these bad news, remember when Planetbeing explained in an interview last month, the evasi0n jailbreak relies on a number of exploits. So it’s not clear what this means exactly for the jailbreak community in the near future. But we’re guessing it’s not good news.
So right now what should you do as a user ? To ensure you keep your current jailbreak intact, you’ll want to stay away from today’s update (iOS 6.1.3). Maybe the Evasi0n jailbreak is dead for awhile but the team is there working very hard for you.
