Comex, the developer of the 2.0 website, has released the source code for the PDF exploit found in un-patched versions of Apple’s iOS mobile operating system. The code has been called “impressive” and “dangerous” by some security analysts. The exploit has the ability to install malicious code on a users iOS device by simply visiting a webpage crafted to run the code. If you do not plan on jailbreaking your iOS device, we recommend updating to iOS 4.0.2 to remove the vulnerability. If you are already jailbroken, we suggest installing the “PDF Fix” patch from Cydia.
