IRL Name: 
Nicholas Allegra

Nicholas Allegra (Comex) has cracked open the iOS security on three different occasions. He created the simple-to-use Apple iOS jailbreaking program JailbreakMe in 2007 which allows millions of users to strip away in seconds the ultra-strict security measures Apple has placed on its iPhones and iPads, devices that account for more than half the company’s $100 billion in revenues.


According to Dino Dai Zovi, co-author of the Mac Hacker’s Handbook, JailbreakMe can be compared to Stuxnet, a worm tasked with infecting Iran’s nuclear facilities.

He was hired by Apple as an intern.

Dai Zovi also compares Allegra’s skills to the state-sponsored intruders targeting corporations and governments.
