Evasi0n Jailbreak's Userland Component
Good writeup of the exploit techniques used in the new iOS jailbreak.
Evasi0n is interesting because it escalates privileges and has full access to the system partition all without any memory corruption.  It does this by exploiting the /var/db/timezone vulnerability to gain access to the root user’s launchd socket.  It then abuses launchd to load MobileFileIntegrity with an inserted codeless library, which is overriding MISValidateSignature to always return 0.

The Silencing of Maya
software patent shakedown threatens to remove a 4-year-old's only means of verbal expression: 'Maya can speak to us, clearly, for the first time in her life. We are hanging on her every word. We’ve learned that she loves talking about the days of the week, is weirdly interested in the weather, and likes to pretend that her toy princesses are driving the bus to school (sometimes) and to work (other times). This app has not only allowed her to communicate her needs, but her thoughts as well. It’s given us the gift of getting to know our child on a totally different level. I’ve been so busy embracing this new reality and celebrating, that I kind of forgot that there was an ongoing lawsuit, until last Monday. When Speak for Yourself was removed from the iTunes store.'
