Firest0rm - Another Apple iOS 6.1.4 Jailbreak Scam

Scamming users looking for Apple iOS 6.1.3+ jailbreak is something we covered earlier, and it seems the trend is here to stay with another entry named Firest0rm claiming to offer untethered Jailbreak for iOS 6.1.4 & even iOS 7. Using the same modus-operandi as earlier, the perpetrators of this scam asks users to download their utility asking them to complete a survey to unlock the zip file containing the Apple iOS 6.1.4 and iOS 7 untethered jailbreak which is nothing but fake/dummy. This is not all, as suggested by many comments in the previous post this could even be a virus/malware and can harm users computers - so the bottom line is stay from it.

Easiest And Fastest Way To Use Traffic Shaping On Linux

We demonstrated how to use Raspberry Pi as an home-automation server with voice commands using SiriProxy earlier, since Apple Siri (and SiriProxy) needs an good active internet connection to convert speech-to-text for recognizing commands this failed due to limited bandwidth availbility when using Raspberry Pi as an 24x7 downloading server.
