Security researchers from Pangu Lab, a well-known company that provides iOS jailbreaks, said on Monday that they have found a vulnerability that they believe affects around 10% of all iOS apps. Researchers described the issue —which they named ZipperDown— as "a common programming error, which leads to severe consequences such as data overwritten and even code execution in the context of affected apps." Pangu Lab said it created an automated scan rule to search for ZipperDown in iOS apps. Researchers found that 15,978 out of the total of 168,951 iOS apps they scanned appeared to be impacted by the ZipperDown vulnerability, although, apps need to be manually inspected to confirm that they are affected. The list of vulnerable apps also includes several high-profile iOS apps that have more than 100 million users, such as Weibo, MOMO, NetEase Music, QQ Music, and Kwai. For more visit OUR FORUM.
