Meet Comex. Not the bargain fair, but the 19-year old who made JailbreakMe possible

The Hacker Who Keeps Outsmarting Apple is Only 19 Years Old If you use JailbreakMe to jailbreak your iPhone, you have this 19-year old hacker to thank. Meet Comex, a.k.a. Nicholas Allegra, from Chappaqua, New York. The university student has consistently been able to outwit Apple's security engineers and found ingenious ways to jailbreak the iPhone, through exploiting holes in its OS' security. About his exploits, Allegra tells Forbes : “It feels like editing an English paper,” Allegra says simply, his voice croaking as if he just woke up, though we’re speaking at 9:30 pm. “You just go through and look for errors. I don’t know why I seem to be so effective at it.” Allegra, formerly using the pseudonym Comex, agreed to talk after Forbes traced his identity. Click through the link for the full story.
