Apple releases iOS 4.0.2 for iPhone, 3.2.2 for iPad

PDF security hole plugged; jailbreakers disappointed

Apple has released an update to iOS for both the iPhone and iPad today; iOS 4.0.2 for the iPhone and 3.2.2 for the iPad. The biggest fix in his release is the closing of the PDF door that opened a hole that allowed programs like JailbreakMe to work, but could also leave your device open to hackers.

This looks like the only major change made in the update, so jailbreakers are now going to have to find a new way to outwit the folks at Apple to crack their devices. I'm sure Comex is on the case.
