A new iOS 10 exploit could give an attacker remote access, the company that developed the software has warned.
In an update to the exploit’s developer documentation, XDA Senior Developer John Poole explained how an attacker could take advantage of an iOS 10 vulnerability in the WatchOS system.
“An attacker could gain the ability to read and write to the device’s storage,” Poole wrote.
It would also allow them to write to other users’ devices and to the Watch’s memory.
The exploit was described in a blog post from XDA Developers, but it was not yet possible to install the exploit on an iOS device.
This post has been updated to reflect the fact that the Apple SDK for iOS 10 has been published on GitHub.
