Apple Patches iPhone Security Hole
Apple iPhone users should soon be prompted to install a software update that plugs a much-publicized security hole in the devices.
The critical vulnerability patched by Apple was the very same used by iPhone developers to power "Jailbreak," software that allows iPhone users to install third-party (non-Apple made) applications. According to Computerworld, this latest update makes it difficult (but not impossible) for users of brand-new iPhones to install Jailbreak.
The update is available only through iTunes and won't appear in the bundled Software Update application or at the Apple Downloads site. Apple advises iPhone users to make sure they have the latest version of iTunes (7.5) installed before applying the update.
