    PDF has many, many issues and always has. I am sure there are several more with it that nobody has mentioned or found yet. Actually all sorts of software is this way too. Only way Apple to stop it in your logic would be to not allow safari to make PDF files viewable within Safari.

    So they will release an update that does nothing but kill the vulnerability and maybe add an upcoming feature to persuade people to go for it.... Bfd doesn't mean you have to update.

    Question - if Apple patches it with a software fix, why cant the hole be reopened by undoing their patch provided you have your Shsh? I have no idea what is involved. Just curious. Perhaps a jailbreak that uses a new iOS 5.0 Firmware but reopens the hole while updating?

    So with the iPad 2 once apple stops signing 4.3.3 we can't restore even though the SHSH blobs are saved?

    I'm gonna disagree and say it was a great move. iPad 2 users have been waiting forever for their jailbreak. Comex (the hacker) knew this and therefore released the jailbreak as quickly as he could before it was patched up.

    Keep in mind that Apple is also looking for vulnerabilities and there is a chance that they would have patched it anyway with a 4.3.4 release. This jailbreak will ALWAYS work with 4.3.3...so I don't see any problems with releasing it.

    It's funny how Apple are trying to look like they still give a **** about jailbreakers

    Exploit found > Patch it with an update
    Exploit found > Patch it with an update
    Exploit found > Patch it with an update
    Exploit found > Patch it with an update
    Exploit found > Patch it with an update

    Really Apple, just stop half arsing it

    I now that there was no 4.3.3 jailbreak for iPad 2 but since it's a hole in EVERY iDevice why in the world could it not wait till iOS5?

    That's their reason for justification.

    Apple why don't you guys just leave us to hell alone. Its because of comex and other dev team members that I* contunue to buy* your wonderful products with your lame azz restrictions.* I repeat please apple leave us the f*** alone .* It is because of the recent jailbreak that I am taking back of samsung galaxy tab 10.1 and not an ipad 2.* Apple you really do need to get your sh** together and leave us jailbreakers alone or start giving us, the consumer some flexibility and options.* I get so frikin tired or starring at a plan screen with square azz icons on it. It is because of the jailbreak community that you continue to have customers like me.* That is all for now.* Sorry just had to vent.

    It is already done... I just updated my iPhone 4 to iOS4.3.3 and Jailbreakme starts installing Cydia and then aborts the installation. Tried several times on 3G and Wifi.

    I'm gonna disagree with you and agree with SSputniikk on details.

    Comex (a hacker) identified the security flaw some time ago, and was trying to keep it under wraps for as long as possible- so that when released it would benefit the greatest number of users and machines and software combinations.

    A jerk (whom I won't name, but who is allegedly also A Hacker) either independently discovered the same exploit, or more likely, heard about it from Comex and other JB developers. He thought it was awesome cool, so released it almost immediately, despite the usual warnings from other, wiser devs. He chatted with Comex too, but decided that he was still way awesomer and cooler than Comex, so he released full details of the exploit anyway.

    Comex then, hacked up a JB kit (in discussion with other developers) and released jailbreakme.com v3 ASAP, so iPad/iPhone/iPod users (but mostly iPad, and mostly iPad v2) could get some use out of the flaw before Apple patched it.

    Comex made the best move he could, under the circumstances. But the ones who forced his hand were pretty boneheaded. And no, they don't typically expect it coming, or much care if it does.
