    [FONT=&quot]TiPb reports today that the iOS 4.3.4 update that Apple just issued to plug the PDF exploit that had enabled JailbreakMe.com’s latest jailbreak, also patched another exploit that has been used for untethered jailbreaks since iOS 4.1. This information comes from the Twitter of i0n1c, whose tweets on the issue were quoted by TiPb as follows: [/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot]As TiPb notes, i0n1c’s last tweet in that list addresses the issue of whether or not Apple is just trying to plug security leaks, or if it is also actively trying to specifically close down jailbreak exploits.[/FONT]

    I think it's probably accurate to say that Apple will close all known security holes in time, iOS 5 will also let them do this "on the fly" so they can be more responsive to any known risks.
