Jailbreak developer comex to intern at Apple

Jailbreak developer Nicholas Allegra, better known as comex and best known for userland exploits that allowed untethered Jailbreaks, and the Jailbreakme.com web-based Jailbreak, has announced on Twitter that's he'll be taking an internship at Apple this fall.

It's been really, really fun, but it's also been a while and I've been getting bored. 3 hours agoSo, the week after next I will be starting an internship with Apple.

Switching sides -- going from mouse to cat -- is an interesting move. Rather than finding exploits to help the Jailbreak community gain unrestricted access, he'll be finding them to help Apple stop bad guys from getting it first (and hopefully keeping iOS malware effectively at zero.)

On behalf of the TiPb Nation, we want to wish comex well in his internship and future endeavors. And we want to wish the Jailbreak community, with or without comex, well in finding future exploits.
