If you are an iOS 6 untethered jailbreak hopeful wondering what developments are taking place in that arena, the live stream of Hack in the Box's iOS panel discussion, featuring well known jailbreak developers @MuscleNerd, @pod2g, @planetbeing and @mdowd, is the stream you need to watch.(Stream recording posted below)
Hack in the Box annual intercontinental security conference began on Tuesday, and featured some of the greatest minds in the hacking community.
The day involved some interesting devleopments as Pirate Bay founders Peter Sunde and Fredrik Neij managed to be MIA, just before their scheduled 3pm presentation slot. However, it also featured the notorious teenage hacker, Pinkie Pie's second hacking feat with Google Chrome.The young hacker managed to created and full exploit for Google Chrome in Pwnium, and if confirmed today, will become the recipient of Google $60,000 prize for the exploit.
In addition, Mark Dowd and Tarjei Mandt presented an interesting talk concerning progress in hacking iOS 6 securities, and even showed conferenced attendees a demo of a kernel mode exploit in iOS 6 which resulted in running Cydia (You can view Dowd and Mandt's presentation slides here).
This was exciting news, as the jailbreak community has been in an uproar this week over 3 unknown hackers who believe they hold the key to an untethered jailbreak for iOS 6.
In a tweet submitted nearly a month ago, well-known Chronic Dev. Team member @pod2g, informed followers that he was not currently working an exploit for iOS 6:
About the iOS 6 JB : I'm not working on it ATM, sorry. I'm focusing on my job. Maybe discussions at #WWJC will generate ideas (?).

Last week, however, after the stir created by unknown hackers TeamDr1zzle, is seems the Chronic Dev. team may have changed their minds as @pod2g tweeted to followers that an untethered iOS 6 jailbreak was in the works, though not to expect anything to soon:
Thursday should feature more conversation to pique the interest of iOS 6 jailbreak hopefuls as a 1:30 am panel discussion on iOS/OS X security will ensue, featuring well-known jailbreak developers, @MuscleNerd, @pod2g, @planetbeing and @mdowd.
If you are interested in knowing more about what is happening on the exploit scene right now, this will be a panel to watch.
