iPhone source code leaked online being called ‘biggest leak in history’

A source code for a key component of the iPhone’s operating system was leaked online, potentially handing hackers coveted data which will make it easier to break into iOS. It was removed after Apple filed a takedown request.
The code posted on GitHub is for the iOS 9.3 version of iBoot, a vital component of iOS which ensures the booting of the operating system.
It was posted on the website by user ‘ZioShiba.’ It remains unclear how the user obtained the code, but it appears to be legitimate. That’s according to Jonathan Levin, the author of a series of books on iOS, who spoke to Motherboard and called the incident the “biggest leak in history” and a “huge deal.” The website Gadget Hacks also said the code is “definitely the real deal.”
The source code was eventually taken down, after Apple filed a copyright takedown request with GitHub.
