jailbreakme.com PDF exploit source code is out in the open, read how to protect yourself

One day after Apple released iOS 4.0.2 for the sole purpose of fixing the PDF exploit found by Comex, Comex, the developer behind jailbreakme.com made public the source code they used to take advantage of the above mentioned exploit. The problem is that now anyone can take advantage just by creating a website similar to  jailbreakme.com. If you want to defend yourself against malicious attacks while keeping your iPhone jailbroken, there is a”patch” on Cydia which, even if it doesn’t eliminate the vulnerability, issues a warning whenever you are trying to download a PDF file. Here are the steps and the screenshots:

1. Go to Cydia and search for PDF Patch

2. Install it

3. Restart your iPhone

3. That’s it, you are good to go
