The awareness of the danger of the security holes in the iPhone browser are growing. JailbreakMe is now a popular way to jailbreak an iPhone, but it the convenience comes through security holes that can also be used by hackers.
Reuters has a report that mentions that Apple is investigating the issue. Well, of course they do. It just a question how long it will take them to issue a new security update for iOS 4.
