Apple Facing Security Nightmare as iOS 9 Source Code Leaks

        Apple is facing a potential security nightmare after iOS 9
        source code was uploaded to GitHub by an unknown individual or
        group.  As Motherboard reports, it has since been removed
        after Apple filed a copyright takedown request, but once
        things are on the internet, it's hard to control. It was
        actually first posted last year on Reddit, but mostly went
        unnoticed since the user wasn't a frequent poster.  Apple iOS
        9 is old, you may think, as we're now up to iOS 11, but that
        doesn't mean parts of the iOS 9 code aren't still in use. As
        Motherboard explains, the situation is made worse for Apple
        because the source code that did leak is for iBoot.
