Zerodium has announced that they have increased the amount they are offering for an iOS 10 jailbreak to $1.5 million, the company was previously offering $500,000.
The company apparently paid out $1 million last year to one hacking team for a jailbreak of iOS 9.1 and 9.2.
We’ve increased the price due to the increased security for both iOS 10 and Android 7, and we would like to attract more researchers all year long, not just during a specific bounty period as we did last time,” said Zerodium founder Chaouki Bekrar.
The company will then sell the jailbreak to government agencies and also some private companies, obviously for more than they paid for it.
