If you did IOS 9.3.3 jailbreak , especially using PP Helper program offered by the Chinese at the Pangu, then you might be in a position to become victims of hackers from China, or at least it suggests a number of users who complained that their Facebook accounts, Paypal or bank accounts were accessed by strangers.
Some users report that access were made very shortly after accessing the program PP Helper in computer IP addresses in Beijing, Vietnam, Taiwan and various parts of China, being used to access accounts and, in some cases, to sending money to strangers account holders.
If Facebook talking of course about accessing accounts and nothing more now, but for those Paypal and bank were recorded remittances, and this is basically the biggest problem, because hackers have gained access to payment systems that can steal money from innocent users.
PP Helper for Windows is infected with malware
All those who had accounts broken they used the Windows version of the program PP Helper and nobody knows whether they used the original version, or another altered by different hackers and distributed on the Internet, but it is clear that we are talking about a major problem with method which is jailbreak for terminals.
When I jailbroke, I downloaded from Pangus site and I used a throwaway apple login. I have never had a breach like this happen. On July 25th, about an hour after I jailbroke my phone, someone in Beijing accessed my paypal and sent $50 to the email account:[email protected] Luckily I was awake, and contacted paypal immediately after I received their email and they refunded the transaction. They confirmed my account was accessed from Beijing.
Speaking about the issue, the creator of Cydia, Saurik said that trusts the people at Pangu, but can not certify that the program makes jailbreak in Chinese has not been altered by a third party entity after hackers have published so there is a chance that all those who used this program PP Helper in Windows to be infected with malware.
The problem lies in the company 25PP, one who finances these solutions jailbreak their employees can include malware in these programs, or their servers can be compromised by other hackers that include malware, and finally millions upon millions of people could be infected PCs a Chinese malware.
I don’t particularly like the concept of installing the 25PP tool as Chinese companies tend to have software that is pretty intrusive and even “combative” against competitor’s software, and in general I am concerned about the way people do signature stuff which is why I worked so hard to make Impactor be able to do all the signing and communication locally.
Those from 25PP are known to include as many as a “surprise” in the software sold worldwide users, so do not be ruled out that in this situation to exist very big problems.
The only safe solution
According to saurik, the only safe method by which we can jailbreak iOS 9.3.3 and can rest assured that we will not be compromised computers, is using the tutorial to jailbreak with Cydia Impactor the creator Cydia saying that the English version of the application PP to jailbreak it It is made only by Pangu, without being touched.
Moreover, the application Cydia Impactor requires login with an Apple ID, but saurik is more serious than the rest and theoretically should receive data logcare, but of course it is reomandabil use an Apple ID that you do not use it for normal services to connect to Apple.
I will also say I trust Pangu a lot… but I don’t know if the Chinese version of their app was only touched by them. I bet the English one was their work only, though you are downloading it from 25PP, which opens some issues: do you trust the employees at 25PP with control over their servers? I would say that it would be dumb to do quickly be trying to attack people rather than racking up more credentials before anyone becomes suspicious.
I have always said that jailbreak solutions launched by the Chinese are dubious and can hide “surprises” that could lead to serious long-term problems, and unfortunately iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak if I was given right.
