Apple indirectly confirmed that the source code posted on GitHub was legit after it issued a DMCA takedown under penalty of perjury on Wednesday. The leak of such proprietary and confidential software could make it easier for hackers to find and exploit flaws in the operating system.
As Motherboard explains, iBoot is the program responsible for ensuring that the operating system of the device loads correctly.
The iBoot code handles the first steps in the iPhone and iPad startup process including verifying the iOS kernel (the operating system's core) is valid and properly signed.
Apple has shot down the centrality of an obvious source code spill for the iPhone's iBoot bootloader which stacks the working framework. These types of jailbreaks used to be common on older versions of iOS, but as Apple has increased the security of their operating system with features such as the Secure Enclave Process chip, it's been more and more hard to unlock phones in this manner.
The event captured the attention of several security experts, including one who toldMotherboard that it was the 'biggest leak in [Apple's] history'. "It's a huge deal".
In other words, Apple's multi-layered approach to keeping iOS secure involves a lot more safeguards than what you'd see in a leak like this, however it may have made its way to GitHub.
As Macrumors points out, modern iOS devices have Secure Enclave processor protection, which hardens device security. He also pointed out that the leaked code "aligns with the code he reverse engineered himself".
Apple has always been very protective of its source code in order to prevent vulnerabilities, which could be exploited by malicious third-parties, from being discovered.
One of Apple's most guarded secrets has reportedly been leaked online by an anonymous source. This source code leak could change all that, though.
The source code was eventually taken down, after Apple filed a copyright takedown request with GitHub. But such a hypothetical vulnerability is unlikely to allow an attacker to bypass the cryptographic security on the iOS device itself, so it may be of less use to individuals trying to bypass a phone owner's password or PIN.
