Apple want to close this tool and financial compensation
Corellium customers can create and interact with virtual devices with iOS (a virtual version of the iPhone, for example), all from the browser. In addition to asking this company to "stop all uses" of its products, Apple They also want to be paid for all "damages."
For a developer, a tool like the one Corellium offers can be very useful. A security investigator canFor example, charge a simulated iPhone in seconds and look for possible errors.
If you discover an error, you can quickly load previous versions of iOS to find out from which version it exists. If this error blocks the virtual device, you simply have to make a couple of clicks to start a completely new "iPhone".
This reminds us that a few days ago Apple launched a program with which they come to offer a million dollars to researchers who get hacked the kernel from iOS. They also offer $ 500,000 to those researchers who are able to make a "network attack without requiring user interaction."
"Its main objective is to benefit."
In the complaint, Apple states that "although Corellium presents itself as a research tool for those trying to discover security vulnerabilities and other defects in its software, Your true goal is to benefit with his flagrant infraction. "
"Far from helping to solve vulnerabilities, Corellium encourages its users to sell any information discovered to the highest bidder."
For its part, in an entry published on July 4, Corellium says that "respect the intellectual property of third parties and expect their users to do the same. "
