Remember the potential security theat in iOS that Apple was reported to be fixing last week? Well, the fix still isn’t here yet – at least not officially. It turns out that jailbreaking your iPhone is the key to solving this problem. Gizmodo suggests that users use JailbreakMe.com to jailbreak their devices and then download the PDF Patch to patch the hole. Once that’s done, they can choose to un-jailbreak their devices if they wish.
For the not-so-daring, Apple has recommended that users stay away from PDF files for the time being – meaning don’t open them on your iOS device but if you really have to, make sure they’re from a trusted source. Or you can stick to viewing on your computer instead. Stay tuned and we’ll keep you posted when Apple releases the official PDF fix for iOS.
