iOS 4.3 Released
As forecast (despite a hiccup or two along the way) Apple just released iOS 4.3 for all devices except the Verizon iPhone and AppleTV. Announced during last week's iPad 2 event, iOS 4.3 was originally scheduled to be released on Friday when the iPad 2 ships. Coincidentally or not, Charlie Miller - three-time winner of the Pwn2Own competition - announced yesterday he had found an exploit in the 4.3 golden master.
In response to popular demand, Apple added a Settings option to iOS 4.3 that allows users to select whether the hardware switch on the side of the iPad will be used to mute the device or lock the orientation. There was a strong negative reaction when Apple changed the switch to from orientation lock to audio mute.
It's not clear why Apple chose to release 4.3 today rather than waiting for the iPad 2 to ship on Friday. Apple has been pushing a slew of upgrades into the pipeline recently, including security patches to iTunes and Safari. With CanSecWest opening today, it's hard not to wonder if there might be some connection. Charlie Miller, who is hoping to pull off a four-peat in Vancouver this year, noted last night that he had found a vulnerability in the Mobile Safari browser on the iOS 4.3 GM. Pwn2Own devices and computers were "frozen" two weeks ago, but Apple would presumably like to claim any vulnerabilities had been fixed after that.

Why would they release it so soon if there is a vulnerability in Safari? Don't they beta test these things out for a reason?"Time circuits on...flux capacitor...(gulp)...fluxing"
Please read again I only give one warning - thanks!

btw for anyone wondering, this is the exact same as the GM, so there is no need to download this version

So Charlie Miller just finds exploits and then just gives them to Apple.
