How Apple put an end to iOS jailbreaking

Posted Posted by Admin in News     Comments Comments Off on How Apple put an end to iOS jailbreaking
Oct

iPhone jailbreaking is dead” reads the headline. Four words signaling the end of a 10-year long battle between Apple and those who wanted open control of their iOS devices. Here is an admission in black and white that prominent members of the jailbreaking community are giving up on attacking iOS devices. Apple created a system where their engineers, like soldiers in a castle under siege, were able to outlast the besieging army; throwing back assault after assault, until the attackers, deciding the siege was no longer worthwhile, packed up and headed home.

Ten years ago, finding a jailbreak was fairly doable, though it required skill. As iOS jailbreaks became harder to find, however, they became more valuable. Zerodium publicly announced it would pay $1 million, now increased to $1.5 million, for a remote jailbreak flaw (e.g. remote code execution) on iOS. This effectively priced the jailbreak community out of the market for iOS vulnerabilities. Markets only assign commodities such value when they are rare and difficult to obtain. If somehow you remain unconvinced, consider that the last publicly available untethered (e.g. persistent across reboots) jailbreak was discovered over a year ago, and was part of the government-quality attack tool Pegasus. The current generation of jailbreaks require the user to run a jailbreak app every time they reboot.

All of this flies in the face of conventional computer security orthodoxy which contends that the advantage will always belong to the attacker. It’s easy to see why this thinking holds true. The attacker only needs to find one or two exploits anywhere in the system, while the defender must fix all the flaws in the system. Therefore, the attacker has a massive advantage because they are only focused on one thing while the defenders are focused on multiple things like adding new features and solving customer use cases. As Linus Torvalds noted: “Security by itself is useless… the upside is always somewhere else.” This belief in the attacker’s advantage is so pervasive that intelligence agencies around the world appear to build their cybersecurity strategies to significantly prioritize attack over defense.

If everyone believes attackers will always win, how did Apple create a system that favors the defenders? To understand the answer, it’s important to understand that creating a persistent iOS jailbreak generally requires finding at least four separate vulnerabilities in iOS:

  • In an app on the device
  • In the iOS kernel
  • In the boot sequence
  • In the iOS kernel (often different than 2)

App vulnerabilities

The first challenge is to get arbitrary code running on iOS at all. Since Apple tightly controls which apps can run on iOS, just running an arbitrary app requires finding a vulnerable application. In practice, this has usually meant finding flaws in Safari.

Having exploited that flaw, a user likely wishes to sideload apps (e.g. install and run apps that haven’t been approved by the AppStore). Originally, this was necessary in order to run third-party apps, since there was no App Store. Later, users enabled features such as Bluetooth tethering that carriers disabled or charged extra money to use. For non-iOS developers, running sideloaded apps requires disabling the signature checking iOS does on all apps before executing them. This check, which is done inside the kernel, ensures apps have come from the AppStore or an approved enterprise equivalent.

Kernel vulnerabilities

Now, our attacker must find a flaw in the kernel that allows arbitrary code execution in order to disable the signature checking routine. The kernel of an operating system is like a traffic cop. It is in charge of controlling access to hardware resources, managing processes, and controlling user permissions among other duties.

Assuming the first two flaws have been found and successfully exploited, the jailbreak is only effective until the device reboots because at that point signature checking will be re-enabled and the user-loaded apps won’t be allowed to execute. To persist the jailbreak across reboots, the attacker needs to find an exploit in the boot sequence of the iOS device that will run the attacker’s code.

Boot vulnerabilities

When iOS boots, the hardware first verifies the signature on the firmware, which then verifies the signature on the boot loader (actually, iOS has two), which then verifies the signature on the kernel, which then checks the signatures on all subsequently launched programs. Therefore, all attackers are forced to find a flaw somewhere in that boot sequence that will allow them to run their initial program that will disable the kernel’s signature checking.

And thus, the beauty of Apple’s strategy is revealed. First, they force their opponent to find four vulnerabilities; fixing any one of which breaks the jailbreak and forces the attacker to find a new flaw that serves the same purpose. Second, and perhaps more critically, Apple ensures that at least one of those flaws must be in the boot sequence.

This is a huge advantage because, unlike most programs, boot loaders are typically relatively small (hundreds or thousands of lines of code, not millions) and they don’t need a lot of new features added over time. Thus, attackers can’t count on the bootloaders introducing new flaws. This creates a “narrow pass,” and, as Sun Tzu advised (“With regard to narrow passes, if you can occupy them first, let them be strongly garrisoned and await the advent of the enemy.”), Apple has fortified it.

Kernel vulnerabilities (redux)

Finally, the attacker needs an exploit to get back into the kernel to disable the signature checking again. It is likely that this exploit will require a different flaw than the original kernel vulnerability used. However, if an attacker has managed to get this far, the jailbreak will persist across reboots. At least until the next version of iOS patches these flaws and this race starts over again.

Within the security community there has long been a debate of whether fixing any single bug makes the system significantly more secure. By creating a “narrow point” that can contain only a limited number of bugs, Apple has ensured that the answer is “yes” for iOS. Every bug fixed makes it that much harder to find a new flaw. I congratulate Apple for creating a system where, for once, the defenders have the advantage. Even so, iOS users must hope that Apple remains vigilant. The jailbreaking community worked for free. The next round of attackers are funded by organizations willing to spend millions of dollars to penetrate iOS devices.

Domestic T20 competition likely to replace T20 Global League

9:58 AM ET

South Africa’s domestic 20-over competition is likely to be moved into the window left vacant by the T20 Global League, which was postponed earlier this week. The six-team franchise competition was originally due to be played in 2018 from March 14 until April 15 but could be brought forward by four months, subject to a final board approval.

In a teleconference on Thursday, the franchise CEOs were asked to confirm the feasibility of hosting the domestic T20 in that time and assured CSA it could be done. The only outstanding tick in the box is to check with the broadcasters but unlike the T20 Global League, CSA will not need to sign a new partner. SuperSport already hold the rights of all cricket played in South Africa.

A massive boost for the domestic tournament will be that all the national players will be available to participate, which is usually not the case. That means South Africa’s players will not be granted NOCs to play in other leagues, such as the Bangladesh Premier League, in that time. It is also unlikely that international opposition will be sought over that period.

“If there is an international tour in that time, only 12 or so guys will be playing. What about the rest of the players? They can’t sit around for six weeks and not do anything,” a source told ESPNcricinfo.

CSA was believed to be exploring options for hosting one of Pakistan or West Indies but acting CEO Thabang Moroe said the board will not enter into an endeavour which will cost them money. Only incoming tours against India, England and Australia make CSA money, so any other opposition would be loss-making and CSA cannot afford to incur more expenses. Instead, they will spend money they would have spent anyway on the 20-over competition. All that remains is for them to find a sponsor for it. Courier company Ram opted not to renew their deal last season, and it was played without a corporate backer.

When the competition was called the Ram Slam, it made headlines for the wrong reasons. A protracted match-fixing investigation took place from late 2015 until July this year during which seven players including four former internationals, Gulam Bodi, Alviro Petersen, Thami Tsolekile and Lonwabo Tsotsobe, were banned for between periods of two and 20 years. CSA maintained that no actual fixing took place but there were attempts made. Last season’s 20-over tournament was a low-profile affair which was played in November-December, while the Test team was in Australia.

Reliance sees telecoms arm Jio turning profitable ‘shortly’

MUMBAI (Reuters) – Reliance Industries Ltd’s telecoms arm Jio will turn profitable “shortly,” the Indian conglomerate said on Friday, while adding it would continue to pump around $1 billion into the venture for each of the next few quarters.

Jio launched late last year with free voice and cut-price data, sparking a price war in India’s cut-throat telecoms sector which has driven down margins and forced consolidation.

Oil-to-retail giant Reliance, controlled by India’s richest man Mukesh Ambani, suggested there were signs its costly gamble was paying off. Jio racked up 61.47 billion rupees ($947 million) of revenues in the three months to Sept. 30, though made a loss of 2.71 billion rupees.

“I can only see it (net income) turning positive very shortly,” joint Reliance finance chief V Srikanth said, as the group disclosed Jio’s bottom line for the first time.

Jio’s net debt stood at 490 billion rupees, Srikanth said, adding that parent Reliance’s debt will peak in the quarter to December or the next quarter, after which it will begin sliding, suggesting robust growth for the conglomerate.

Reliance will continue to spend around 70 billion rupees a quarter on Jio for the next few quarters, Anshuman Thakur, Reliance Jio’s head of strategy said. Reliance has poured more than $30 billion into Jio so far.

To woo customers to Jio’s network, Reliance in July launched a $23 phone that blurs the lines between a smartphone and a basic feature phone.

Earlier this month, it also launched a guaranteed buyback offer for Jio customers buying Apple Inc’s latest iPhones.

The wireless carrier reported an average revenue per user (ARPU) of 156.4 rupees. The country’s top wireless carrier Bharti Airtel’s ARPU was 154 rupees, while smaller rival Idea Cellular’s APRU stood at 141 rupees in the April-June quarter. Jio’s subscriber base swelled to nearly 139 million at the end of September.

“It will not be a surprise if they break-even or turn a profit in the last quarter of this financial year,” said Jagannadham Thunuguntla, head of fundamental research at domestic brokerage Karvy.

“Now what investors are thinking is how they will scale up their ARPU from 156 rupees to, say, 180 rupees.”

CORE OPERATIONS

On a standalone basis, including just its refining, petrochemicals and oil and gas exploration businesses, Reliance posted a 7.3 percent rise in its second-quarter profit, helped by higher margins from its refining and petrochemicals.

Net profit was 82.65 billion rupees in the quarter to Sept. 30, its highest ever. But that was below analysts’ average estimate of 88.05 billion rupees, Thomson Reuters data showed.

The refining and petrochemicals businesses delivered an 11.5 percent rise in quarterly revenue from operations to 717.61 billion rupees.

Gross refining margin (GRM), the profit earned on each barrel of crude processed, was $12.0 for the quarter, a nine-year high, but shrunk to $3.7 per barrel against the benchmark Singapore complex margins due to a falling price difference between light and heavy crude oil grades, Srikanth said.

Last quarter, the company outperformed Singapore’s benchmark GRM by around $5 per barrel.

On a consolidated basis, which also includes Reliance Industries’ U.S. shale gas, retail and other operations, profit came in at 81.09 billion rupees, the company said.

Ahead of the results, shares in Reliance hit a record high of 890.7 rupees, rising as much as 2.1 percent.

In the wake of multiple sexual assault allegations against producer and studio executive Harvey Weinstein, many Hollywood personalities have like Angelina Jolie, Gwyneth Paltrow, Ashley Judd and Kate Beckinsale have revealed that they were subjected to abuse from him. The producer has been accused of sexually harassing them over a period of nearly three decades. In a report, talent manager Simone Sheffield revealed about how Harvey tried to get Aishwarya Rai Bachchan alone but her manager saved her from him.

She stated that when she used to manage the ‘Devdas’ actress, she found it comical how hard Harvey tried to get Aishwarya alone. She called him a “big bully pig”, as he asked her to leave the meeting numerous times and she politely declined. Simone further said that when they were leaving his office he cornered her and said “what do I have to do to get her alone?” and she told him to kiss her “black ass”. When Ash and she returned to their hotel, Simone sent Harvey a steel pig trough filled with diet soda as a thank you gift for the meeting. She revealed that he eventually threatened her and told her that she would never work in the business. Whatever it may have taken, she said she never gave him the opportunity to even breathe on her client (Aishwarya).

Apple released its iOS 11 firmware to all users not so long ago. While at this point we are anxiously waiting for an iOS 11 jailbreak, a hacker named Abraham Masri released an iOS 10.2.1 jailbreak for all 64-bit iPhone and iPads. Previously, the Cupertino giant released the iOS 10.2.1 to users in an attempt to kill the Yalu jailbreak in January. The update patched all the vulnerabilities that were necessary for the Yalu jailbreak for iOS 1- – iOS 10.2. So let;s dive in to see some more details on the new Saïgon jailbreak by the hacker.

Hacker Releases Saïgon jailbreak For Supported 64-bit iOS Devices Running iOS 10.2.1

As we have mentioned earlier, Abraham Masri released the Saïgon jailbreak for iOS 10.2.1 for 46-bit iOS devices. However, at this point, if your iOS device is running any firmware higher than iOS 10.2.1 than it might be impossible to downgrade to it. This is because the company stopped signing iOS 10.2.1 in February, locking the doors to any possible downgrade option. Henceforth, if your iOS device is currently running the iOS 10.2.1. only then will you be able to take advantage of the new Saïgon jailbreak.

Saïgon jailbreak supports the following 64-bit iOS devices:

  • iPhone 7
  • iPhone 7 Plus
  • iPhone 6s
  • iPhone 6s Plus
  • iPhone 6
  • iPhone 6 Plus
  • iPhone 5s
  • iPhone SE
  • iPad Air 2
  • iPad Air
  • iPad mini 4
  • iPad mini 3
  • iPad mini 2
  • iPad Pro
  • iPod Touch (6th Generation)

iOS 10.2.1

So if one of your iOS devices is running iOS 10.2.1 than you can use the Saïgon jailbreak. Do take note that the Saïgon jailbreak ipa is not available so you will have to make use of Xcode in order to create a Saïgon.ipa file. You will have to create a source code from Github to sideload it or you can also use Cydia Impactor to install the ipa on your iPhone or iPad. If the Saïgon.ipa file has been created, you can follow the step by step instructions enlisted below.

  1. The first thing that you need to know is to download the .ipa file and Cydia Impactor.
  2. Now open Cydia Impactor and connect it to your device running iOS 10.2.1.
  3. Now drag the Saïgon.ipa file onto the Cydia Impactor window and enter your Apple ID and Password.
  4. On your device, open Settings General Profiles Device Management
  5. Over here, Trust the new certificate open Saïgon
  6. Now tao on ‘jailbreak’ and that’s it.

Do take note that if the procedure fails, reboot your device and then try again. At this point in time, we would not recommend you to jailbreak your device through Saïgon. This is because the jailbreak is in its alpha stage and is experiencing a lot of issues. We expect that the nature of the Saïgon jailbreak is semi-tethered like the Yalu jailbreak. What this means is that once your iOS device boots, the kernal will no be patched so you would have to re-open the Saïgon app in order to jailbreak your device again.

Somerset prepare legal action in case of relegation

Somerset are preparing to take legal action against the ECB should they suffer relegation as a result of Middlesex’s appeal against an over-rate penalty.

Somerset finished one point above Middlesex having beaten them in the final game of the season and, as a result, Middlesex were relegated. But, with Middlesex appealing the two-point penalty imposed as a result of their slow over-rate in the abandoned game at The Oval a few weeks previously, it remains possible they could jump back above Somerset in the table. As a consequence, Somerset could still face relegation.

But Somerset’s chief executive, Lee Cooper, has claimed the ECB will have “brought the game into disrepute” if his club are relegated and threatened immediate legal action.

“The implications of overturning the [over-rate penalty] decision are significant,” Cooper told Somerset members at a club lunch that was also broadcast on Facebook. “We would be relegated. Having fought so hard to survive, that would be an unfair outcome.

“The decision regarding Middlesex’s points deduction was made and because of that ours and other teams’ tactics were determined by what we needed to do to stay in Division One.

“One example of that was the last game: if we needed two extra points, we would have had completely different tactics. We would have scored 300 in the first innings and we would have been fine. We prepared a result wicket, we won the game and we achieved the number of points we needed to survive. If in retrospect the ECB change that decision, they have brought the game into disrepute.

“If they overturn their decision, the case goes to the High Court and is deferred until 2019. What does that do to the game of cricket and where are we next year? So the decision that will be taken this afternoon is: do we go along that path and effectively play the same game that Middlesex are playing? On balance, I expect we’ll issue legal proceedings this afternoon.”

Shortly after the members’ lunch, Somerset issued a statement confirming they had instructed a London law firm to prepare a case.

Cooper, who was appointed in June but has only been in the role at Somerset a few weeks, also raised some doubts as to the integrity of the ECB disciplinary process. As well as claiming the ECB had already broken their own rules by allowing Middlesex an appeal – at the time of the original penalty, the ECB said there was no right of appeal available – Cooper said he had been given some sort of “reassurances” that the appeal was now taking place only so the ECB could be “seen to be going through a process” and Somerset had “nothing to worry about.”

As a result, he suggested he had little trust in them.

“The conversations [with the ECB] started with them saying ‘Middlesex have no right of appeal’ and that was quite conclusive,” Cooper said. “Since then it has gained some traction and an appeal process is underway, which is a contradiction.

“We have reassurances – albeit not guarantees – from the ECB that they need to be seen to be going through a process but that we have nothing to worry about. [But] Having said there was no right appeal and now there being an appeal, we are not trusting that.

“We are left with a decision: we either trust that we’ll be okay or we issue legal proceedings against the ECB.”

The ECB has been contacted for comment.

Retail inflation remains steady in September, hopes for rate cut bleak

NEW DELHI (Reuters) – India’s annual consumer price inflation remained steady in September from the previous month, but hopes of a rate cut by the Reserve Bank of India remain bleak as it expects higher inflation in coming months.

India’s annual consumer inflation (CPI) in September rose to 3.28 percent from a year earlier, government data showed on Thursday.

Analysts polled by Reuters had expected September’s CPI inflation rate would edge up to 3.60 percent from August’s downwardly revised 3.28 percent.

Earlier this month, the RBI left interest rates unchanged, after cutting the key rate by 25 basis points in August, while raising its retail inflation projection for October-March to a range of 4.2 to 4.6 percent, and lowered its economic growth estimates.

Analysts said the chances of a rate cut were bleak as higher sales during India’s long festival season that begins next week, coupled with higher petrol and diesel prices, could feed into broader prices.

“Aside from volatile food and fuel prices, core inflation is likely to accelerate,” said Shilan Shah, an economist at Capital Economics in Singapore.

“There is also a risk that excessive liquidity in the banking sector could seep into inflation.”

Since Aug. 1, retail petrol prices in Delhi have gone up 4.7 percent and diesel 2.6 percent despite a cut in taxes by the federal government.

Retail inflation has been steadily rising since June, when it eased to 1.46 percent – its slowest pace since India started releasing such figures in January 2012, based on combined data for rural and urban consumers.

Separately, annual industrial output grew at a nine-month high of 4.3 percent in August, compared with the forecast of 2.4 percent by economists in a Reuters poll, the data showed.

Industrial output growth was revised to 0.9 percent year-on-year in July.

POLITICAL COMPULSIONS

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who faces crucial state elections in his home state of Gujarat and hilly state of Himachal Pradesh in December, is under pressure to revive growth, which slipped to 5.7 percent in the April-June quarter, the slowest pace in three years.

Last week, the government cut taxes on 27 items, mostly food products, and eased rules for small and medium-sized companies, as it rushes to address growing criticism of its new tax launched in July.

New Delhi, facing risks of a widening fiscal deficit this year mainly due to lower growth in revenue receipts, wants the RBI to ease policy rates to support private investment and revive growth.

Stokes loses New Balance contract

Ben Stokes, the England allrounder who is currently under police investigation for his part in a late-night brawl in Bristol last month, has been dropped by his kit manufacturer, New Balance.

The company issued a statement on Wednesday saying his behaviour “does not match our brand culture and values” and that his contract, worth an estimated 200,000 a year, had been terminated. The announcement came shortly after Stokes had tweeted an apology for a separate incident, in which he apparently mocked the disabled son of British celebrity Katie Price, and with his involvement in the Ashes increasingly uncertain.

While the ECB has said Stokes will not travel to Australia until his legal issues are resolved – he was arrested but has not, at this stage, been charged – it remains unclear whether he will be part of the group gathering in Loughborough for a training camp from next Tuesday.

The camp is likely it to involve some fielding practice – the potential loss of Stokes further weakens England’s close-catching – as well as discussion on what to expect in Australia and some bowling with the Kookaburra ball.

New Balance provides Stokes with branded equipment, from bats to boots. In a statement, the company said: “New Balance does not condone behaviour by our global athletes that does not match our brand culture and values, and therefore we have ended our relationship with Ben Stokes, effective October 11, 2017. We will not provide further comment.”

Shortly after the incident in September, which saw Stokes held overnight by Bristol police, a TV ad by brewer Greene King featuring the player drinking in a pub was pulled.

Stokes has also issued an apology after appearing to mock Harvey Price. A video of him impersonating Harvey, who suffers from autism, ADHD, Prader-Willi Syndrome and blindness, circulated shortly after Stokes’ arrest.

He has now publically expressed his regret and, having admitted he should never have acted in such a way, accepted that he behaved “foolishly”. In a statement on Twitter, Stokes said he had contacted both Harvey and Katie Price personally and offered to get involved in their attempts to reduce online bullying.

“Earlier this year I was a shown a clip of Harvey being asked on Loose Women how he responds to internet trolls,” Stokes wrote. “I loved Harvey’s directness with his responses – he said what most of us think but perhaps aren’t brave enough to say, let alone on live TV.

“I foolishly attempted to copy the clip after I saw it a few times. I should never have done this and I am so sorry. It was absolutely not my intention to offend Harvey, Katie or anybody else.

“I have written to both Harvey and Katie to say sorry and prior to this offered to meet in person at the end of last month with a view to also getting behind their petition about online bullying. I do hope I can put this right.”

Supreme Court rules sex with an underage wife is rape

NEW DELHI (Reuters) – The Supreme Court on Wednesday ruled that a man is committing rape if he engages in sexual intercourse with his wife who is aged between 15 and 18, a landmark decision that will affect millions of child brides.

The legal age of consent is 18 years. The law regards even consensual sex with a woman under 16 as rape, but an exception had been made for intercourse between a man and his wife who is between 15 and 18.

Marital rape is not a crime in India, where the government has said criminalising marital rape could destabalise marriages and make men vulnerable to harrassment by their wives.

The Supreme Court ruled the age of consent was 18 for “all purposes” after hearing a petition by Independent Thought, a non-profit group that sought to criminalise sex with underaged wives.

“Sexual intercourse by a married man with their minor wife below 18 years is rape,” the court said in its judgment, which was welcomed by women’s rights campaigners.

“I am very happy with the supreme court judgment,” Vikram Srivastava, a lawyer for Independent Thought, told Reuters.

“The judgment gives a boost to the national campaign of ‘Beti bachao and beti padhao,’” he added, using a Hindi phrase meaning ‘Save the girl child and educate the girl child’.

The additional solicitor general, P.S. Narasimha, who represented the government, declined to comment.

Wednesday’s verdict would not be applied retrospectively, however, said the court, which based its conclusions on India’s Child Marriage Prohibition Act.

Though illegal, child marriage is deeply rooted in India. Factors such as poverty, weak law enforcement, patriarchal social norms and concerns about family honour are often blamed.

Marriages in India are considered to involve a child if the woman is below 18 or the man younger than 21. Men both above and below the legal age may marry child brides.

India’s 2011 census showed child marriage had declined marginally from a decade earlier but more than 5 million girls were still married before the legal age of 18.

More than a quarter of Indian women between 20 and 24 said they were married before 18, and a fifth of men between 25 and 29 said they married below the legal age, the National Commission for the Protection of Child Rights and the charity Young Lives said in a recent report analysing the census data.

The number of underage brides has declined 0.3 percent in rural areas since 2001, but in urban areas it increased 0.7 percent, the report said.

The study, the first to break down India’s census data on child marriage, found that nearly one in four girls in rural areas and one in five in urban areas married before 18.

Despite efforts to empower girls and women and toughen penalties, India is among the top 10 countries with the highest rates of child marriage, along with Burkina Faso, Chad, Guinea, Niger and South Sudan.

Karan Johar announces his upcoming film trilogy with Amitabh Bachchan, Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt

Salman Khan will be next seen in ‘Race 3’ with Jacqueline Fernandez, whose shooting is yet to kick off. However, if rumours are to be believed, this movie was also supposed to have another big superstar.

According to reports, megastar Amitabh Bachchan was approached for a role in ‘Race 3’. But the actor had already given his dates of October and November to the football biopic ‘Jhund’.

Unfortunately, the ‘Race 3’ team was also looking to shoot at the same time so the veteran actor had to choose between the two projects. Since he had already given his dates for ‘Jhund’, he had to turn down the action thriller.

Well, it would have definitely been phenomenal to see Salman and Big B in the same film, which hasn’t happened since the 2008 film ‘God Tussi Great Ho’.

John Cena’s ‘a fair bit bigger than I am’

By the time Jason Behrendorff had finished shredding India’s top order, the internet was going mental over his supposed likeness to WWE wrestler John Cena. And after Australia strolled to an eight-wicket win in the second T20I, Behrendorff was told of the comparison.

He’s “a fair bit bigger than I am,” Behrendorff said as he burst out laughing, the mood set by his four-wicket haul that led to an Australian win in only his second international appearance.

“It’s an unbelievable feeling to be honest,” he said, having dismissed Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Manish Pandey and Shikhar Dhawan as his first four international wickets. “… to bowl four overs tonight and take four wickets, but mainly to get a win. To get the boys back up and about after a pretty tough time in the the one-dayers, it’s very, very special.”

Just like he had in his only over in the first T20I in Ranchi, Behrendorff began his spell in Guwahati by conceding a boundary. But while he was wicketless on Saturday, he snared two in his first over on Tuesday.

Behrendorff had Rohit lbw by bowling the quick inswinger, a method used by other left-arm quicks like Mohammad Amir against the batsman. The delivery also got Kohli two balls later, and Behrendorff said the plan was indeed to nip the ball into India’s right-handers.

“I was really happy with that,” he said of his comeback, after being hit for two fours by Rohit in the first over. “Few ones that I got hit to the boundary probably weren’t where I needed to be bowling. But then to get the ball up there, swinging the ball, hit guys on the pads and nick blokes off: those are the things we talk about in our meetings. To get the balls in those areas especially up front.”

While Australia’s spearhead Mitchell Starc has been injured and out of international action since the Champions Trophy, Behrendorff looked forward to talking shop with his fellow left-arm quick. “I know Mitch reasonably well. I’ve spent a bit of time playing with him occasionally but mainly against him,” he said. “He’s someone that I feel I can talk to and get some advice off as well. He’s a very, very good guy to have around.”

A look at Behrendorff’s Linkedin profile indicates that he is a man of varied interests. He has a degree in exercise and sports science from the Edith Cowan University, and has interned with the strength and conditioning coach of the Australia men’s hockey team. He also wants to improve his “presentation and interviewing skills” in the the media. Early evidence is that he’s on track.

“It’s nice to have a bit of knowledge of what’s going on,” Behrendorff said of how his background in sports science helped him handle his injury-prone body. “I can talk to physios and doctors and understand exactly what’s going on and what I need to do. To be honest, the main thing is doing the rehab and getting back on the park and now enjoying playing international cricket for the first time. It’s something I’ve worked so hard for and I’m loving every minute of it.”

Behrendorff has a reputation of being a nice guy. The likeness apart, there’s no – “You want some, come get some” – Cena trash talk.

“You don’t have to be mean and nasty all the time,” Behrendorff said. “Generally I’d try and let my skills and the ball do the work and let that do the talking for me instead of getting into a verbal battle or anything like that. Some guys enjoy that and that’s what fires them up and gets them going. But that’s not really my style.”

MUMBAI (Reuters) – Indian banks’ sour loans hit a record 9.5 trillion rupees ($145.56 billion) at the end of June, unpublished data shows, suggesting Asia’s third-largest economy is no nearer to bringing its bad debt problems under control.

A review of Reserve Bank of India (RBI) data obtained through right-to-information requests shows banks’ total stressed loans – including non-performing and restructured or rolled over loans – rose 4.5 percent in the six months to end-June. In the previous six months they had risen 5.8 percent.

While banks remain the main source of funding for India’s companies, the stubborn bad debt problem has eaten into bank profits and choked off new lending, especially to smaller firms, at a time when an economy that depends on them is stalling.

India grew at its slowest pace in three years in April-June – a concern for the government of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who faces elections in 2019 and has pledged to create millions of new jobs before then.

Banks are having to take higher provisions to account for more defaulters being pushed into bankruptcy. And margins are likely to be squeezed further by proposed new rules to encourage commercial banks to pass on central bank interest rate cuts.

To be sure, the bulk of India’s sour loans are in the state banks and stem from lending to large conglomerates, especially in steel and infrastructure. But analysts say the rise in bad loans among small firms, and even retail borrowing, is worrying and will do little to encourage new loans to help fuel growth.

“On the corporate side, we think it’s a recognition cycle which is nearing an end,” said Alka Anbarasu, senior analyst at Moody’s Investor Service, referring to more bad loans being recognized as such, as banks come under pressure from the RBI and other regulators. “But it’s really those data points beyond corporate that are causing some worry.”

Anbarasu forecast weak quarters ahead for banks before profitability picks up, and several senior bankers from public sector lenders – which account for more than two-thirds of Indian banking assets – agreed the months ahead would be strained.

Stressed loans as a percentage of total loans reached 12.6 percent at end-June, according to the RBI data, the highest level in at least 15 years.

HIGHER PROVISIONS, WEAKER LOANS

Part of the issue for banks and the government is a strict provisioning regime: the RBI wants banks to provide for at least 50 percent of the secured loans to companies taken to bankruptcy proceedings, and 100 percent for the unsecured part.

A dozen of the biggest such cases account for nearly 1.78 trillion rupees, or a quarter of total non-performing assets.

For those companies, banks will need to provide 180 billion rupees on top of existing provisions, according to July estimates from India Ratings and Research, the local affiliate of Fitch Ratings.

More than 20 other sizeable companies are at risk of being taken to bankruptcy court.

Bankers say these and other pressures – including rising government bond yields that forced banks to post mark-to-market losses – have added to the squeeze, and hit new loans.

According to RBI data, new loans grew at just about 5 percent in the year to March, the lowest growth rate in more than six decades. Several banks have already cut back their loan books to conserve capital.

“What are they (RBI) thinking while they’re taking these steps all at the same time?” said a treasurer at a state-run bank, who didn’t want to be named due to the sensitivity of the issue. “Do they want banks to wind up their businesses, or do they want to save the banks?”

Treasury income accounted for 22.7 percent of banks’ operating profits in the last financial year, doubling its share from a year earlier, India Ratings estimates.

“The almost zero treasury income will hit provisioning ability and, in turn, make it more difficult for weaker banks to give loans as capital becomes more scarce,” said Soumyajit Niyogi, an associate director at the rating agency.

A senior policymaker, who requested anonymity as the discussions are not public, said the government would have to help to sufficiently capitalize the banks.

Fitch Ratings estimates Indian banks will need $65 billion of additional capital by March 2019 to meet Basel III global banking rules. Moody’s expects the top 11 state lenders alone will need nearly $15 billion. The government has just $3 billion left in its budget for bank recapitalization.

“We think capitalization is the biggest challenge for the banks at the moment, given that earnings will remain subdued and will not support any capital generation,” said Moody’s Anbarasu.
