Evad3rs Press Conference at HITBSecConf2013 – Amsterdam (#HITB2013AMS) Hotel Okura, 11th April 2013
Amsterdam, 10th April: The team known as the @Evad3rs (@Planetbeing, @Pod2g, @pimskeks and @Musclenerd) will be holding a press conference to discuss their groundbreaking evasi0n jailbreak at the Hack In The Box security conference (HITBSecConf2013 – Amsterdam) this week.
What can you expect from this once in a lifetime press conference? The chance to speak with and question some of the world’s leading iOS hackers on the work behind evasi0n.
Evasi0n was released on the 4th of February 2013 and quickly became one of the most successful jailbreaks ever released. Used over 7 million times in only 5 days, this jailbreak is monumental as it marked the first for two new iOS devices – the iPhone 5 and iPad mini. Since the release, a massive 18.2 million iOS devices have been jailbroken according to data given by @saurik.
We have recently seen evasi0n being patched by Apple in the iOS 6.1.3 update and so the cat and mouse game begins again. But we all know the @Evad3rs have some secrets up their sleeves for the next major release. Why not attend the press conference and ask them face to face?
If you cannot attend the press conference in physical form, we will be live streaming it in its entirety so you can attend in cyber form right here —-> http://www.ustream.tv/channel/hitb
