    No, it affects 3.1.2 and 3.1.3 as well, so you're not in the clear.

    And I guess, if you want to remain having the ability to jailbreak your phone, dont update safari on your phone.
    Ok you update your firmware, not safari. Your iPhone isn't a Personal Computer its a mobile device. n00b....

    BTW, very cool with the BTS info^^

    Why did my usage time and standby time go away? It just says - now. What if a hacker is remotely accessing my phone without me knowing? Lol

    i know that, so less of the noob, nob. and ultimately, safari is an app that has identifed security flaws, of which the developer will be required to fix, espically now that its been hightlighted in such an extreme way. So it may be a mobile device as you brilliantly pointed out, but on the said mobile device it is running an OS, and applications, very much like a PC, so basic principles apply. App release, flaw identified, revision of software released addressing flaw. Its not rocket science.

    OK,Let Me tell you a few things,

    1.@comex is the person who developed Spirit,which is a userland jailbreak.

    2.The same type of jailbreak as JailbreakMe was introduced in 2007,when the iPod Touch had a TIFF Vulnerability on 1.1.1.

    So he could have done it either way, and people are planning more exploits.
    So use the official jailbreaks and nothing else.

    ALL IOS RELEASES.
    NOT just recent IOS releases. Yes, that means 4.0, 3.1.x and ALL VERSIONS BEFORE.

    The only reason jailbreakme.com doesn't work on versions prior to 3.1.2 (4.0 according to some) is that the payload in the "malicious" PDF is designed around that specific kernel version. That does not mean that the hole itself is not still there.

    *sigh*

    It's at times like this I think we really need a Noscript for mobile Safari...

    Interesting how not that long ago there were pages of people bashing Android for the supposedly malicious wallpaper app that was collecting sensative information (btw, three days after the story showed up on mmi, it was found to be false: Lookout Clarifies Accusations Against “Suspicious” Wallpaper App | Droid Life: A Droid Community Blog), now we have an article stating that the stock browser of iOS is this vulnerable. It's funny because now you have to jailbreak the iphone to put proper precautionary measures in place for this while Android has the simple solution of the Lookout app in the market. It just goes to show what I've said before and I'll say again...both os's have pros and cons, and I hope all of the Apple fanboys who were bashing away just a few days ago about Android being "so open and vulnerable", realize it now.

    Correct. The exploit is specific to iOS4. 3.X users are in the clear
