Dino Dai Zovi, co-author of the Mac Hacker’s Handbook, says
JailbreakMe’s sophistication is on par with that of Stuxnet, a
worm thought to have been designed by the Israeli or U.S.
government to infect Iran’s nuclear facilities. He compares
Allegra’s skills to the state-sponsored intruders that plague
corporations and governments, what the cybersecurity industry
calls “advanced-persistent threat” hackers: “He’s probably
five years ahead of them,” says Dai Zovi.
