Apple will fix a security flaw in the newest iPhone software that can
be exploited to access information stored on the device.  The exploit
could work by tricking users into visiting a website that contains a
specially crafted PDF file.  The vulnerability gained wide attention
when it was used to jailbreak the devices, which allows owners to
install applications that have not been approved by Apple.  The fix
has been developed and will be released “in an upcoming software
update.”
