iPhone 13 Pro Hacked, Tianfu Cup, China Hackers, iOS 15 jailbreak – Forbes

Published

on

Ever since the Chinese government invoked regulations to prevent security researchers from taking part in international hacking competitions such as Pwn2Own, the annual Tianfu Cup, held in Chengdu, has been the place for the best hackers in China to demonstrate their collective prowess.
This past weekend saw the latest competition take place and the newest iPhone, the iPhone 13 Pro running the latest and fully patched version of iOS 15.0.2 to be precise, was hacked in record time. Twice.
The Kunlun Lab team, whose CEO is a former CTO of Qihoo 360, was able to hack the iPhone 13 Pro live on stage using a remote code execution exploit of the mobile Safari web browser. And do so in just 15 seconds flat.
Of course, months of preparation were likely involved in getting to this point, but the result was devastating and devastatingly fast. However, full details of the vulnerability or vulnerabilities exploited have yet to be revealed.
Kunlun Lab wasn’t the only team to hack the iPhone 13 Pro, though. Team Pangu, which has a history of Apple device jailbreaking, cemented its reputation in this regard by claiming the top $300,000 cash reward for remotely jailbreaking a fully patched iPhone 13 Pro running iOS 15.
While, again, the full detail of how this was achieved has not been made public, reports suggest it involved a one-click link triggering a remote code exploit that bypassed Safari security mechanisms. 
The good news is that hacking is not a crime, as I have repeated time and time again.
Indeed, these hacking teams will turn the details of their exploits over to Apple so that it can release patches for these vulnerabilities. I would expect to see these in either iOS 15.1 or a forthcoming iOS 15.0 security update.
The not so good news is that there have been reports in the past of Chinese state actors using some of these exploits for espionage or surveillance purposes before patches can be released.
It should also be said that Apple products weren’t the only target at the Tianfu Cup 2021 event. Security researchers also successfully launched exploits against Windows 10, Microsoft Exchange and Google Chrome, among others. I’ll bring you more news of those as detail emerges.
I have reached out to Apple for comment and will update this article in due course.

Petronas closer to final investment on third FLNG after awarding FEED deals – News for the Energy Sector – Energy Voice

Published

on

Malaysia’s state-owned energy company Petronas is preparing to take a final investment decision (FID) on its third multi-billion dollar floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) unit after awarding front-end engineering and design (FEED) contracts. The new-build floater project, dubbed ZLNG, will help solve challenges commercialising gas offshore Sabah in Malaysia.
FEED deals were awarded to two consortiums that will ultimately compete for the engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning work, reported Upstream. South Korea’s Samsung Heavy Industries along with partner Japan’s JGC will be carrying out a FEED contract in parallel with another team comprising Saipem and China’s Hudong-Zhonghua Shipbuilding. FEED works are expected to take 10-12 months to complete.
Petronas has yet to make an official announcement, but Sabah’s Chief Minister Hajiji Noor told local media in late October that FEED activity was ready to start and that FID will be taken in 2022. The FLNG facility is expected to start producing liquefied natural gas (LNG) by the end of 2026, he added.
This will be welcome news to ConocoPhillips (NYSE:COP) and Shell (AMS:RDSA) that have struggled to commercial gas at their Kababangan Cluster project offshore Sabah. The cluster is owned by Petronas Carigali (40%), ConocoPhillips (30%) and Shell (30%). Gas from the cluster will be piped to the proposed FLNG facility for processing into LNG.
As Energy Voice reported last month ConocoPhillips and Shell have both suffered significant losses in relation to their Kebabangan (KBB) field due to transportation issues caused by a faulty pipeline that is managed by Petronas. A 512 km onshore pipeline was designed to ship gas to the neighbouring state of Sarawak for export at the Malaysia LNG (MLNG) terminal. Crucially, the proposed FLNG unit will offer an alternative route to market for gas from Kebabangan.
Petronas seeks to appease ConocoPhillips and Shell with $3bn floating LNG unit

The FLNG facility will be located nearshore at the Sipitang Oil & Gas Industrial Park (Sogip) in Sabah and will have a production capacity of 2 million tonnes per year of LNG, according to the chief minister.
