why would one want to patch the exploit? :confused:
So if you're getting the malicious PDF, they can't take over the whole phone. Plus once you jailbroke it, it doesn't matter whether you close the exploit... and you can uninstall the "fix" too if you so wish

For security patches, I have always gone by the idea that it needs to either fix, or mitigate the threat. This one does not fix it, but rather just mitigates the threat by making you aware that you are opening a pdf.

But then again, what do I know? I must not be as knowledgeable as you...

Has anybody done the PDF Fix under the Elpelle6 repository. Would this actually fix the security breach?

Don't waste your time. The dev team already said it was more than just PDFs. You could do that exploit with other document formats as well...and now it's more likely to happen because, obviously, "hackers" probably know that by now.
