Looks like Apple is taking a serious note of GeoHot’s Blackra1n and Blacksn0w softwares that was released a few days back. These 2 softwares can now easily jailbreak and unlock iPhone 3G/3GS. And in response to this, Apple is looking for a ‘iPhone OS Platform Security Manager’. Instead they should try hiring GeoHot himself, right? AppleInsider shared this interesting bit of news:
A job listing on Apple’s Web site seeks someone for the title of “iPhone OS Platform Security Manager,” a position that would be based in the company’s corporate headquarters of Cupertino, Calif. The company is looking for someone to oversee its team which ensures secure booting and installation of the iPhone OS and protecting and hardening it against outside threats.
According to job description:
“This position requires a very technical and hands-on leader, someone with a passion for understanding security exploits and coming up with innovative methods to create secure platforms,” the company’s description reads. “You must be a highly self-motivated individual who seeks to create a dynamic and creative team environment in which old problems are solved in new and innovative ways.
Its pretty clear from the job description that Apple is looking for someone to stop these iPhone hacking people from jailbreaking/unlocking the iPhone and stay ahead of the cat and mouse game.
