Just moments ago, Apple released a new version of its mobile operating system iOS to the general public. Mainly a security update, iOS 4.3.4 (or 4.2.9 for CDMA iPhone owners), is here to close the bug that allowed the recent jailbreak. While the main victims of this update are indeed jailbreakers, note that the PDF exploit the latest jailbreak used posed a very important security threat, and could have been exploited for nefarious purposes. We haven't noticed any other new features. So once again, if you care about jailbreaking stay away from this version for now (and use the jailbreak patch). As for the rest of you, you're good to go!
