There are the advantages of jailbroken iOS devices, but there are those who pay the ultimate price of shying away from Apple's patented softwares. Just recently, Pangu's iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak came under fire after consumers reported some security breaches brought by the jailbreak.

According to reports, as soon as the iOS 9.3.3.3 jailbreak version was initiated, some few but significant alarming breaches were encountered by consumers. First, they noticed the irregularity on access on their social media accounts, specifically Facebook.

Others reported some suspicious transactions on their individual paypal accounts. Of course, as consumers weren't aware of these transactions, they are automatically considered as fraudulent.

Among the reported problems brought by iOS 9.3.3 is the apparent blocking of personal credit cards apparently caused by irregular transactions. Pangu, the company that is responsible for the iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak has since denied the rumors and released a statement on twitter saying "Neither we nor 25PP would be so stupid to make money by hacking users PayPal account via jailbreak tool. We hope to find the truth asap."

To address the issue more effectively, Pangu created their official Reddit account to answer inquiries about the issues. Pangu's claims were backed by Jay Freeman, Cydia's creator saying he doubts the installation of the 25PP and all of Chinese based softwares as they tend to be very intrusive.

Looking through Pangu's reputation and the recent issue of the iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak, it's likely that the recent breach of privacy were caused by third party softwares. It's rather coincidental as previous iOS jailbreaks didn't have much of these type of problems.

What do you think of this recent glitch on the iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak? Do you believe that it's  coincidental and a rare occurrence on the jailbreak trend? Let us know your thoughts by leaving a comment GamenGuide.com.
