According to Gizmodo, that same bit of code has been circulating the web since late past year, when a user uploaded it on Reddit. However, it being an inherent software engineering process where existing codes have always originated or have evolved from codes in the past, hacking or such misadventure owing to the leak can't be ruled out entirely.
Yesterday an anonymous user posted what experts believed at the time to be the source code for a key component of the iPhone's operating system on GitHub. Apple itself seems unconcerned about the potential security issues, with the company noting in a statement that the code is already three years old and that "the security of our products doesn't depend on the secrecy of our source code". Although Apple hasn't directly commented on the breach's authenticity, its expedited DMCA request strongly implies the source was genuine code.
The Cupertino giant may have not officially confirmed the alleged iOS source code leak but it has indirectly done so by sending a legal notice to GitHub, asking it to take the iBoot code down. However, multiple copies of the code have already spread online. Even though we're looking at an iBoot for the iOS 9.3, it doesn't mean that the loopholes or workarounds would be useless for the latest iOS versions. "Not open-source" The code was uploaded to GitHub by a user account known as "ZioShiba".
Apple though ruled out any such possibility claiming the iBoot process that has got leaked pertains to iOS 9. Essentially, it is like the BIOS code found in PCs. Although the source was only available for a short time, it's likely that hundreds of people viewed and downloaded the material while it was available.
Along with attracting hackers, the iOS source code could also help tech-savvy consumers "jailbreak" their iPhones. The Cupertino, California-based uses a Secure Enclave processor to make jailbreaking nearly impossible, notes DailyMail. The former employee apparently took "all sorts of Apple internal tools and whatnot", according to one of the individuals who had originally received the code, including additional source code that was apparently not included in the initial leak.
