Sources Say Apple Will Provide Special iPhones For Hackers To Test And Offer Mac Bug Bounty
Thomas Brewster on forbes.com:
For instance, it should be possible to probe pieces of the Apple operating system that aren’t easily accessible on a commercial iPhone. In particular, the special devices could allow hackers to stop the processor and inspect memory for vulnerabilities.
Great news. It’s better for everyone if hackers at least get a bounty from Apple rather than be tempted and sell the exploits.
On an unrelated note, first Forbes Apple story in ages that is not a clickbait. I literally almost didn’t visit the page when I noticed the source — that’s how much their reputation has fallen in my eyes.
