The network has vulnerabilities iOS 11.2.2, which can lead to jailbreaking

The network has vulnerabilities iOS 11.2.2, which can lead to jailbreaking
Perhaps you remember how at the end of January Rani Idan of Zimperium zLabs announced that he had discovered several vulnerabilities in Apple 's Bluetooth. These vulnerabilities are in iOS 11.2.2 and below.
Apple fixed the vulnerabilities in iOS 11.2.5 and above, and Idan published another post that will create an exploit based on the vulnerabilities and publish it publicly.
This is great news, because on the basis of the exploit it is possible to create a jailbreak for iOS 11.2.2. Idan posted another post on Zimperium's official website, entitled " CVE -2018-4087 PoC: Escaping the sandbox by misleading Bluetooth, " the first part of which consists of the bug code Apple described in the postscript to the security update.
He writes that the exploit is published for research purposes and should not be used with bad intentions.
Both vulnerabilities have been fixed by Apple in iOS 11.2.5, tvOS 11.2.5 and watchOS 4.2.2, which means they do not concern the latest firmware versions. However, users with iOS 11.2.2 can still get a new jailbreak if someone takes up creating it.
The same thing happened with the exploit of Ian Bir "aysnc_wake", which led to the creation of several jailbreak tools, including Electra.
There are no guarantees that the vulnerabilities will lead to the creation of a jailbreak for iOS 11.2.2, but it is not worth losing hope. The Zimperium zLabs team did a good job of discovering vulnerabilities, describing them and publishing them publicly. Now it's up to the developers of the tools.
Once again, we recall that the vulnerabilities have been fixed in iOS 11.2.5 and iOS 11.2.6. If you did not upgrade to these versions, then do not. Perhaps, soon for your firmware will jailbreak. It remains only to wait and follow the news.
