Apple security flaw – update

Apple has plugged a hole in the software that runs iPhones, iPads and iPods which allows hackers to take remote control of those devices. The security flaw came to light nine days ago as http://www.jailbreakme.com released code that Apple customers can use to modify the iOS operating system that runs those devices through a process known as "jail-breaking”.

Some Apple customers choose to jail-break their devices so they can download and run applications that are not approved by Apple, or use iPhone phones on networks of carriers that are not approved by Apple.

The jail-breaking code exploited a vulnerability in iOS that had not previously been disclosed. Its release gave criminal hackers a blueprint they could use to build malicious software that would exploit the vulnerability. Now that the security patch has been released, Apple customers will be protected against any such malware as long as they install the software updates on their equipment.

Please accept recent security updates from Apple inc.!
