iBoot source download: Apple hits biggest leak ever with DCMA

iBoot source download: Apple hits biggest leak ever with DCMA

This week the bootloader source code for iOS seems to have leaked in its entirety. Apple would appear to have sent a DCMA takedown notice to Github, where the code was leaked, this indicating the code posted was of some large consequence.
