Apple Fixes JailBreak Hole, But Not For Long


Recently we wrote about JailBreakMe's latest hack to relieve your iOS device of it's shackles.

Apple did not take long to respond to the hacking exploit and released a security fix roughly 2 weeks after JailBreakMe 3.0, the only current option for jailbreaking an iPad 2, arrived.

One day later, JailBreakMe is up and running once more, with an (anti)patch for the Apple patch. While not nearly as convenient as the last version (the hack now requires tethering, and must be repeated upon each reboot), the fact remains that Apple is once again exposed. The "bricking" threat for Apple iPhones we previously addressed (amongst others) on this blog continues to exist.
