Apple Releases iOS 3.2.2 Security Patch for iPad
Apple has acted to plug the PDF security hole in the iPad and iPhone 4, today issuing iOS 3.2.2 for iPad and iOS 4.0.2 for iPhone 4. As Engadget reports, the sole purpose of the update is to fix the PDF exploit vulnerability, or as Apple puts it, the update “fixes security vulnerability associated with viewing malicious PDF files”. Unfortunately for those jailbreakers out there, the main side-effect of the new update is that anyone installing the update will no longer be able to use the JailBreakMe.com method to jailbreak their iPad or iPhone 4, as the JailBreakMe.com method and the malicious PDF code hack used the same security hole to access your device, in fact, the discovery of the security hole was actually as a result of JailBreakMe being released. Don’t fret though, jailbreakers, I’m sure they’re working on a new way to jailbreak your iPad and iPhone as we speak!
