Lots of interesting software is uploaded to GitHub but iBoot - a key component of iOS - has been made publicly available in a significant data leak. iBoot is the software that ensures a trusted version of iOS is loaded. It's basically iOS' BIOS and ensures that the operating system that is loaded is the signed version Apple has distributed.

It's the kind of thing threat actors and intelligence agencies would love to get their hands on.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.
