Apple released iOS 4.3.4 (4.2.9 for the Verizon iPhone) to patch the vulnerability that was used for JailbreakMe 3.0, but could also be used for malicious reasons. The PDF exploit allowed hackers to access your passwords, built-in-cameras, contact databases and so on. The description of the update says it "fixes [a] security vulnerability associated with viewing malicious PDF files."

Comex to Release JailbreakMe.com iPad 2 Jailbreak July 4 or 5?

Most of you have heard by now that Comex's iPad 2 jailbreak was leaked on Saturday morning. We originally thought a private beta tester leaked an early version of the jailbreak on YouTube, but that isn't entirely true. Here's the entire story:

On June 11 the hacker known as Comex published a picture of a ski run labeled "PDF" on jailbreakme.com. We assumed it was a reference to the iPad and iPhone root password 'alpine' and the discovery of a new PDF exploit.

Our suspicions were confirmed on June 19 when Comex tweeted that he was "diligently" working on an iPad 2 jailbreak, followed by a long explanation posted on Twitlonger. A few days later Comex said he was running behind and that a rumored July 17 release date was untrue.

On Saturday, July 1st a video and image of Cydia 1.1.2 running on an iPad 2 flooded the internet. The leak was later confirmed to be real by several sources. Comex responded to the news by claiming someone had used a dictionary attack to release a "buggy" version of the jailbreak putting him on a "useless time limit."

iPad 2 Jailbreak Leaked

According to several reports, JailbreakMe 3.0 for the iPad 2 has been leaked online by a private beta tester. According to one source it's only compatible with iOS 4.3, and that's probably why some tech blogs are reporting that it's only working for some people.

It is important to note that this was not released by Comex, and you should follow the video and link at your own risk. Remember to back up your iPad 2 before jumping in.

Comex has yet to comment, but he did tweet about the beta a few hours before the leak.
