Apple to fix security hole in iOS

Apple has told AP that it will be fixing the security hole that is allowing people to jailbreak their phones.

According to AP, Apple spokeswoman Bethan Lloyd said Thursday that the company was "aware of this reported issue and developing a fix that will be available to customers in an upcoming software update."

Ironically, the only way to fix the security hole now is to jailbreak your iPhone and then apply a third-party patch.

So far, a million jailbreaks have been recorded, an astounding number given that the new jailbreak has only be available for about a day.
