The person took the iBoot source code - and additional code that has yet to be widely leaked - and shared it with a small group of five people.
Security researchers and hackers are likely to study the code, to see whether there are any flaws in it that might make unauthorised access possible, he added. That employee was apparently encouraged by friends from the Jailbreaking community to pull source code and internal tools from Apple's servers.

That Apple has been quick to seek removal of the code from GitHub is also proof enough how important the code is for the company. Apple used the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) to force GitHub to take the code down, but in doing so, basically admitted that the code was genuine.
Fortunately, numerous risks associated with the leak have been mitigated.
Though the code is for the iOS 9, some of the parts can be found in the iOS 11, notes The Verge.
That said, there are many who are claiming this to be the biggest leak ever in the history of iOS or even Apple.
