Aside from the jailbreak excitement, isn't this a major security hole?

Something that can jailbreak by simply opening something in a browser... doesn't that expose a rather large hole that someone else could exploit to do damage?

Why isnt' that all over the new today among the Apple haters? I know I have a few 'droid friends asking same.

Wales, near England.
That's what I was thinking.

I remember there was the similar way of jailbreaking with the 2g (I think), and the hole was patched as you jailbroke.

Don't know if it's the same now?

Good timing... was wondering why this went largely undiscussed since yesterday.

No one but the Dev Team and Comex know what actual exploit they are using. They aren't about to release it.
It's not that hard to download the payload PDF and reverse it to find the hole. Hopefully comex obfuscated it.
