So for those wondering this was the BroadPwn attack from earlier this year. It has been fixed for iOS for a while. This is actually a pretty interesting post though.
PSA: BroadPwn effected the BroadCom BCM43XX chipset firmware. If you had this chipset please make sure you had installed any security upgrades related to this.
@tedu is totally right, this is a completely different issues. I’m not going to delete the comment to clarify this is a different issue from BroadPwn.
Uhm, are you sure about that? The broadpwn writeup doesn’t sound anything like this bug, doesn’t mention any of the same functions, etc.
Hmmm I’m not.
It was patched in the same release, found about the same time, and effected the same BroadCom chipset. Let me double check.
@tedu, you are totally right! Sorry about that.. I’ll correct my original comment. Thank you for correcting me.
