Apple readies fix for iPhone (and iPad) browser security hole
Full article : CNet News
Apple says that it has a fix for the browser security flaw discovered earlier this week on its iOS-powered devices.
After the iPhone
Dev Team released the latest jailbreak
software hack for the iPhone over the weekend, it became apparent that the way the jailbreak worked--via an iPhone's mobile Safari
browser--that the phone has a security vulnerability when it comes to the way it loads PDF files from the Web.
On Wednesday an Apple spokeswoman said in a statement, "We're aware of this reported issue, we have already developed a fix and it will be available to customers in an upcoming software update."
Apple declined to say when the update would be pushed out.
The security flaw is so serious that the German government issued an official warning
to citizens about it on Wednesday and said it was investigating.
