A hacker who goes by the name of Comex has been selected to be an intern at Apple and Comex is  a member of the iPhone Dev Team who is known for some high-profile jailbreak exploits like the recent web-based JailbreakMe, will be starting work at Apple the week after next according to a Tweet he posted recently. Apple isn’t the only mobile-toting group looking to pick up their most notorious sneaksters: Samsung just a about a week ago hired no less than Cyanogen of CyanogenMod, Android’s most popular 3rd-party operating system modification, Comex lets you get inside your iPad 2, Cyanogen brings the party once you’re inside your Android tablet……………..

Comex, developer of some of the most popular jailbreak tools like JailbreakMe and Spirit has just announced that he is joining Apple as an intern. Comex had recently released JailbreakMe 3.0 – one of the easiest solutions to jailbreak iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch for iOS 4.3.3, which used a userland exploit to jailbreak and install Cydia on an iOS device using mobile Safari. Apple had to release an iOS 4.3.4 software update to patch the vulnerability. Comex announced the news via the following tweet:

It’s been really, really fun, but it’s also been a while and I’ve been getting bored.

So, the week after next I will be starting an internship with Apple.

 

Comex as Nicholas Allegra, a 19-year old Brown University student from Chappaqua, New York who stays with his parents. Allegra describes jailbreaking as “like editing an English paper… You just go through and look for errors. I don’t know why I seem to be so effective at it.”  Charlie Miller, a former network exploitation analyst for the National Security Agency had this to say about Comex:

“I didn’t think anyone would be able to do what he’s done for years.”

“Now it’s been done by some kid we had never even heard of. He’s totally blown me away.”

He hasn’t mentioned what he will be working on at Apple, but we won’t be surprised if he joins Apple‘s security to prevent hackers making use of exploits used by him in JailbreakMe and Spirit. It’s good to see Apple hire talented hackers like Allegra even though he was part of the jailbreak community. It is not the first time someone from the iPhone jailbreaking community has joined Apple. Apple had hired Peter Hajas, developer of jailbreak app – MobileNotifier that revamps iOS Push notification system.
