An iPhone hack can now be cashed in for $1.5 million

Zerodium, a security company that offers a set of bounties for previously unknown software vulnerabilities, has increased its reward for a working iOS 10 hack to $1.5 million.  Specifically, the company is looking for a zero-day, remote jailbreak in iOS 10 which means removing Apple's software restrictions on an iOS 10 device you don't physically have access to. The "zero-day" bit, in hacking terminology, means the exploit has not been publicly disclosed (and thus Apple would have zero days to fix it after it became active).
