Acting fast, Apple has fixed the exploits used by the Pangu Hacking Team in their recently-released jailbreak tool that works on devices running iOS 9 through 9.0.2. The tool in question was released around a week ago.

Apple's recent iOS 9.1 patches the two vulnerabilities found by the Pangu Team: one was a kernel memory corruption issue that allowed arbitrary code execution with kernel privileges, while the other was a heap based buffer overflow issue (in the DNS client library) that allowed privilege elevation.

The Cupertino-based company even credited the Pangu Team for discovering the aforementioned vulnerabilities.
