Apple Hires iOS Hacker Comex
Nicholas Allegra will be joining the company as an intern.
Nicholas Allegra, aka "Comex," the 19-year-old hacker behind JailBreakMe.com, is joining Apple as an intern.
"Given how much time Comex has spent looking for bugs and exploits in iOS, its no surprise that Apple wants him on the team," writes ZDNet's Adrian Kingsley-Hughes. "However, Apples win is a loss for the jailbreaking community."
"Comex was a powerhouse behind the jailbreaking community, and his move to Apple could be a blow to jailbreakers," Kingsley-Hughes writes.
