Does the name Sheriff Hashim remind you of anything? Well, if it doesn’t have a look here. Sheriff Hashim, is an iPhone hacker who managed to find a new exploit for baseband 05.12.01. He reported his find to the iPhone Dev Team, of which Muscelnerd confirmed that the exploit might work. Well, Sheriff is in for quite a surprise, as everyone knows that Apple is trying to fight jailbreakers and unlockers, but how are they planning to do that?
Sheriff Hashim reported through his twitter page, that Apple has dismissed his Apple iTunes ID, as he was trying to log on to the AppStore, he was welcomed with this message “This Apple ID has been disabled for security reasons.”
It wasn’t only Sheriff Hashim who suffered some consequences, there is also iH8sn0w who has reported that his Apple ID has also been banned.
This is one way Apple is trying to fight off jailbreakers and unlockers, which is kind of scary, as what if Apple starts to ban not hackers but users who jailbreak or unlock their device?
