With the release of Jailbreakme.com by Comex a new threat has been unleashed to Apple’s iDevices that are kept on display in Apple Stores.
The iOS 4 Jailbreak released just a few days ago uses an exploit in Safari’s PDF Viewer allowing you to Jailbreak your device with out the use of a computer. Therefore anyone that walks into an Apple store is able to Jailbreak the display models at will.
Two days ago on August 2nd I took a trip to the Apple Store located in the Roosevelt Field Mall in New York and to my surprise many of the devices in the store were already Jailbroken.
We can only assume the Apple Store Employees will be thrilled every night restoring all of the display models. An update patching the exploit used in the iOS4 Jailbreak will unfortunately be here before we know it. Please be sure to grab your SHSH Blobs while you can and if you have had an experience like this feel free to share it with us in a comment below!
