Apple PDF Exploit in iPhone, Ipad, iPod Patched

At the moment there is a bug in the Apple iOS that is when you go to a web page and load a PDF file a hacker can get full control of your iPAD, iPOD Touch or the iPHONE. Basically that means all you have to do is visit a web site using the built in Safari browser, the baddy website will load a PDF document which contains a font that hides a hacker program. When your iPAD/iPHONE tries to display the PDF fileit run that program and the hacker gains complete control of your device. And I mean complete control – delete files, transmit files, install programs that can monitor things like online banking…

Well, Apple has finally got around to an update that fixes this exploit. iOS 4.0.2 for the iPHONE and iPOD Touch and iOS 3.2.2 for the iPAD. It patches the PDF exploit but, of course, if you have a jailbreak device, clears that as well. The patch doesn’t fix anything else except the PDF problem so if you don’t care about being susceptible or you want to keep the iPHONE jailbroken you could skip it until the jailbreak is updated.
