iPhone Jailbreak Uses a PDF Display Vulnerability

adeelarshad82 writes “Latest reports indicate that the website that ‘jailbreaks’ iPhones, iPads, and iPod Touches does so by means of a PDF-based vulnerability in OS X. PDF parsing and rendering is a core feature of OS X, and there have been several other vulnerabilities in the past in iOS CoreGraphics PDF components.” As Gruber points out, the proper term for this is not “jailbreak,” but “remote code exploit in the wild.”
