Apple just released a new iOS update with version 4.3.4. Apple does not directly disclose what security issue they fixed to not give to much away to hackers. It is though clear that this update is aimed at the recent browser based easy jailbreak. Obviously the same security hole could be used for much more evil things. So if you are not into jailbreaking updating to 4.3.4 makes sense.
The browser based Jailbreak from Dev-Team called Jailbreakme is pretty popular. A couple days ago Dev-Team sent a tweet saying that over 2 million have jailbroken their iOS device via their service. That is quite a lot and something that Apple needs to keep in mind. A lot of iPhone users like their iPhone open.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
