Thread: a bit unnerving

    Default a bit unnerving
    i'm very happy to finally have my iphone 4 jailbroken, but it seems a bit unnerving to me that they were able to jailbreak the phone right from safari. this seems to suggest that a hacker with malicious content could get root access to my phone, perhaps by my just clicking a link, or some script running on a site. Surely Apple will have to act on this quickly.

    They probably will, but least we now have a jailbreak

    I have to agree, it is a little bit frightening to know that someone may be able to just copy the script and make it into the super iphone virus, but the jailbreakers are experts and I'm sure they must have thought about it.

    And yes, I'm sure apple is already working on fixing it because this is probably the worst way for a jailbreak to happen and its the second time through the browser. Luckily for them that was way back in the 1.1.1 days when everything had security holes in it.
