And the second link... What, we are scared of file exploration now?
Look, I am a busy guy. I am here to contribute and learn. I expect the people I converse with to at least read the stuff they post.
You claim that hacking does not require knowledge. You have a serious misunderstanding of what hacking really is, but you are not open to correction. You call me a mystic. Your citation is irrelevant -- and I don't know if you just don't get it or you were in a hurry, but you don't seem to have read what you posted.
Not trying to be mean or anything, but if this is the quality of discussion that we are having, then you can count me out.
Ok, lets start over.
The top example wasn’t the best but the decompiling resource explorer method is very valid. What’s stopping someone from using this method to inject their own commands and recompiling it?
You’re not making sense when you say I don’t understand what hacking is. The term hack is a cultural term only and the proper meaning does not refer to computers at all.
My underlining point is still the same. Hacking does not require a “knowledgeable person “.
What knowledge does it take to install a keylogger and use the captured passwords to access the targets emails, facebook and so on. By most cultural definitions I just hacked there email and facebook. The fact is that because iphone is so common it makes it very easy to find communities and information online to hack and take advantage of the vulnerabilities.
I am sorry I didn’t give you exact example of how to hack the iphone but I think if I did, I would be banned or at least warned for sharing tips on how to hack.
The answer to the op's question is, yes, It is very easy to hack an iphone if you install applications.
