As expected after the report yesterday about the backdoor hacking possibilities of iOS devices through PDF code, the folks at Apple are hard at work to plug that nasty little leak. According to an Apple spokesperson who spoke with CNET, "We're aware of the reported issue, we have already developed a fix and it will be available to customers in an upcoming software update." There's no timetable on when the update will hit he masses, b we can't imagine that Apple would drag their feet in getting this out. So if you haven't used JailbreakMe to jailbreak your iPhone 4 yet, looks like you better get on it before Apple closes their door to your phone.
