Apple today has confirmed to CNET that they have investigated the exploit used by JailbreakMe 2.0 and that they have already developed a fix for it which will be released in a form of new firmware update soon. The spokeswomen of Apple though didn’t give any specific release date as to when will it be pushed, but knowing Apple, it wouldn’t be too long before it is released for all iOS devices.
We’re aware of this reported issue, we have already developed a fix and it will be available to customers in an upcoming software update.
There are two distinct vulnerabilities in the iPhone uncovered with the jailbreak software’s release, One flaw is in the way the browser parses PDF files, enabling the code to get inside a protective sandbox, and the other hole allows code to break out of the sandbox and get root, or control, privileges on the device.
So there you go, if you are planning to get an iPhone 4, do get it now because once this new firmware is out, all iPhone 4s sold after will have this new firmware installed which will make it impossible for you to now to jailbreak and unlock it.
