    Default Switch already hacked through a known vulnerability?

    Yesterday, hacker qwertyoruiop (known for Jailbreaks of multiple iOS versions, and who also contributed to the PS4 1.76 Jailbreak) posted a screenshot of what seems to be a Webkit exploit running on the Nintendo Switch.

    Yeah, I heard about this. Can't believe how fast it's getting hacked. Poor Nintendo.

    Hope it doesn't get dead in the water yet, to be honest.

    Developer LiveOverflow has published a Proof of Concept file to confirm the iOS 9.3 webkit exploit is working on the Nintendo Switch.

    The exploit had been announced earlier by qwertyoruiop, the hacker behind the iOS 9.3 Jailbreak which used the same vulnerability as its starting point CVE-2016-4657.
