Apple has finally released a fix for the PDF security vulnerability which was being exploited by Comex who launched jailbreakme.com.
iPhone users on iOS 4.0.1 and iPod touch users on iOS 4.0 were exposed to a security hole which could allow anyone to gain unauthorized access to your device by hosting malicious pdf files on a website.
Jailbreakme is undoubtedly the easiest way to jailbreak iOS devices so if you intend to jailbreak your iPhone/iPod touch/iPad in near future then you should avoid this update as it will patch the security hole and kill the jailbreak.
