This week JailbreakMe.com was successfully launched, enabling millions of iOS users to easily jailbreak their iOS device. But like most jailbreak tools, JailbreakMe.com takes advantage of an exploit, in this case a PDF exploit, to allow the successful jailbreak of an iOS device.
Since this security hole is found in iOS 4.3.3, Apple has now confirmed, via the Associated Press, that an upcoming software update will close the exploit:
Apple Inc. spokeswoman Bethan Lloyd said Thursday the company is “aware of this reported issue and developing a fix that will be available to customers in an upcoming software update.”
While a patch, released by Comex, is available for free in Cydia, it looks like iOS 4.3.4 is on its way. Note that if you want to keep your iPad jailbroken, be sure to avoid this upcoming update.
