Apple develops full fix for PDF based security flaw

The security vulnerability itself was a pretty hot topic ever since Jailbreakme.com was released to everyone over the weekend, where this quick and easy jailbreak relies on a flaw in the iOS’s handling of PDFs in order to install jailbreak files. According to an Apple spokeswoman, “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.” It is likely that iOS 4.1 will feature this fix.
