Beer’s recover of his feat came after Team Pangu revealed a explanation of judgment exploit for one of a iOSurface vulnerabilities he’d reported to Apple.
Team Pangu researcher Wang Tielei described iOS 11.2 as a “big loss” as it blocked a heart disadvantage that could be exploited from within an iOS app sandbox.
