Just a heads up really If you are looking to Jailbreak your iPad 2 or any other iDevice using JailbreakMe 3.0, I suggest you get started ASAP, because Apple is already working on a software update to patch the PDF exploit used by JailbreakMe 3.0. This is not an attack on the Jailbreak community by the way, this hole has to be fixed or every iDevice will be vulnerable to malware attacks through Safari. This quick response by Apple is one of the reasons why Comex was so upset when his unfinished product was released on YouTube a couple days before the official release.The Associated Press is reporting that Bethan Lloyd and Apple spokeswoman has confirmed that Apple is working on an update to fix this exploit, saying that Apple is:aware of this reported issue and developing a fix that will be available to customers in an upcoming software update.Germany’s Federal Office of Information Security let Apple know that the same PDF exploit used by Comex for Jailbreak me 3.0 could also be used to infect any users iDevice with malware. Comex also suggested that after you Jailbreak your iDevice you should download the “PDF Patcher 2″ tool from Cydia to protect your iDevice from malware attacks.We can expect an official patch to be released by Apple any day now. The same type of exploit was used by Comex in JailbreakMe 2.0 last year and Apple came out with an update to fix the exploit within a week.If you have not Jailbroken your iDevice yet you should. Jailbreak 3.0 is the easiest Jailbreak tool ever created. Over 1 million people have already Jailbroken their iDevices using JailbreakMe 3.0.
