    I'm confused. All this pdf warning app does is every time you open a pdf is says "hey your opening a pdf so watch out" it does not actually look the pdf over for an exploit or anything. So once youve been told why do we need an app to tell us every time we open a pdf???
    Don't get me wrong I give credit to who discovered this exploit, but do I really need the app now that it is known??

    a pdf can be loaded without your knowledge, as with jailbreakme.com, leaving you helpless against attacks by malicious hackers. the pdf patch prevents this.

    It was a good stopgap but the PDF Patch app in cydia is better. Install it now if you haven't already!
