A Web App Can Jailbreak Your iPhone Through PDF Flaw
Security analysts revealed how the new web app, "JailbreakMe", is able to jailbreak your iPhone like a champ simply by visiting a website. It's a remote exploit related to the iOS's rendering of PDF files, and it can let hackers execute code on any iOS device. I imagine that this newly declared exploit will be quickly patched by Apple because 1) hackers now know about it, and 2) because Apple hates jailbreakers. Apple may even find a way to brick the phone if a user plays with JailbreakMe.
