Apple flat out working for a security patch

by on09 August 2010

But only because it will stop jailbreaking
Fruit themed peddler of broken dreams, Apple said that it is flat out trying to come up with a patch for a security flaw in its iOS.

However while security boffins have been warning that the flaw is critical because it makes it possible for hackers to take over the iPhone, Apple is keen on fixing it because it will stop the gizmos being jailbroken.

Apple boss Steve Jobs wakes up in a cold sweat every night in the fear that Apple users will start thinking for themselves and do what they like, so apparently this security flaw has become top priority. The patch is completed, Apple spokeswoman Natalie Kerris has announced but will not say when it will be released.

F-Secure has claimed that hackers are likely working on a worm to take control of jailbroken iPads and iPhones and will have one by the end of the week.

Apple is aware of the threat, but not saying much publicly. Part of its problem is that it has to issue a patch after talking to 15 other telco partners.
