iOS Application Insecurity

MDSec published an impressive whitepaper on all the security issues iOS app developers face. It’s a free PDF and well worth your time to read. It has snippets about how jailbreak detection works (and is thwarted), insecure API usage, actual code examples for hacking and debugging running apps, and even how to hack the Objective-C runtime from the outside to your will. If you’ve ever jailbroken your device and wondered how people altered SpringBoard to do crazy stuff, that’s covered in here, too.
