Pwnie Awards 2012

I am nominated for the Pwnie Awards 2012 with the kernel exploit used in Corona !
Thank you very much to the persons who have chosen me, I am really happy and proud of it.

Here is the quote :

iOS HFS Catalog File Integer Underflow (CVE-2012-0642)

Credit: pod2g

This exploit was used for the Absinthe iOS 5.0/5.0.1 untether. It massaged the kernel heap into submission, copying over the syscall table and giving pod2g (as well as jailbreak users everywhere) a happy ending. And who doesn't love happy endings?

I can't wait for the results! It will happen the 25th of july at the BlackHat USA conference.
