Charlie Miller is an information security professional. The world only heard about him when he identified a list of very serious vulnerabilities in Apple devices - iPhone and Mac. And this popularity did not pass without a trace, Charlie Miller was invited to work on Twitter. From his microblog, we learned that in the beginning he will work
on Twitter with Moxie Marlinspike, an IT security expert as famous as Charlie Miller himself. By the way, Miller previously worked for the Accuvant consulting fund and collaborated with the American National Security Agency.
Back in 2007, Miller found it difficult to become one of the first who could "hack" the iPhone, then the first generation. The vulnerability revealed by the hacker allowed the necessary files to be copied from the device without having physical access to it.
If there are those of our readers who are interested in this topic and know the Pwn2Own competition, then they should remember Charlie Miller as an expert who found technical vulnerabilities in MacBook Air in 2008 and in 2009 found a "hole" in Safari and iPhone. But this did not end there, and in 2011 the master of his craft found the same nuance in the security system of Apple's flagship devices - the iPhone and iPad, which allowed downloading additional software.
Further, Miller found security vulnerabilities in iOS, with the help of which it was possible to hack official applications from the App Store. In July 2011, a leading hacker identified a vulnerability in the MacBook Pro's battery management chips, which could be used by attackers to take control of a laptop and even trigger an explosion of the built-in battery. This is the kind of contribution that Charlie Miller made to the improvement and optimization of Apple system devices.
