Telling people about fake RCE is one thing. Selling it for $1.5 million is quite another. (Thread)
He describes a process of remotely executing code, which can only be performed from a trusted device. The term RCE pertains exclusively to flaws/vulnerabilities. So when a user explicitly chooses to trust a device and has to enter their passcode, it's not RCE.
Jonathan Scott is actually Jonathan Villareal (he also called himself Jonathan Lee). Read how he sued his former business partner and what he claimed in court…
Here is the proof of his identity from GitHub and court documents
@jonathandata1 Did you patent libimobiledevice? Why can't I find any of your patents? Did you commit perjury?
I'm really curious what kind of company could be conned out of $1.5 mil like that. Or was that another perjury and possibly money laundering?
Oh, and if someone doesn't know how I've found his email, the answer is obvious. I've exploited 0-day GitHub RCE 😂
I have to say that while it's possible that Jonathan is a highly skilled security researcher who had discovered some real and valuable vulnerabilities, which were worth $1.5 mil to some unnamed company, his behavior and the way he reacts to his critics suggest otherwise.

That fake RCE con artist blocked me after I asked him a legit question😂. Please be aware that this person is a fraud and don't pay him money for any services or "hacking courses".
@Shib_Jitsu sorry to drag you into this, but I strongly believe you are Jonathan Villarreal's cousin-in-law whom he has sued. He is spreading a lot of false information, so I'm wondering if you'd be willing to publicly tell your side of the story if it differs from his.
