During the world’s largest conference of DEFCON hackers, held annually in Las Vegas, the security expert from Lookout and the founder of the Fried Apple Team Max Bazaliy demonstrated a fully working jailbreak for the smart watch Apple Watch. Note that this is not the first time that the clock was able to crack, but this is the first time when the public was shown a full-fledged jailbreak for watchOS. In the course of his speech, Max Basaliy described in detail how he managed to crack the watch and access what information he got.
With the help of jailbreak developers, get the opportunity to use on Apple Watch tools such as Frida and Radar. In addition, hacking makes it possible to implement support for SSH connections. According to Max Basalia, watchOS is protected in the same way as iOS.
Jailbreak on Apple Watch will allow to access the following data:
- Information about fitness/health;
- Call recording;
- Mail and messages;
- Apple Pay.
Note that recently the creator of the unofficial application store Cydia, Jay Freeman, announced the death of a jailbreak.
