iPhone IOS 4.3.4: Still Unsecured?
It seems like the hackers are teasing the Apple by jailbreaking again on the latest iOs 4.3.4. The jailbroken iOS 4.3.4 is supposed to be the solution provided by Apple to protect or at least control security defects on their devices such as iPhones, iPads and iPod touches.
However, the cleverness of the hack group, iPhone Dev Team is so irresistible that they managed to make their way on the said iPhone fix platform.
Apparently, on an iOS5 beta jailbreak post, the team claims that they already have the jailbreak for iOS 4.3.4 on all devices using the new redsnow 0.9.8b3, of which a tethered jailbreak.
Furthermore, they take confidence by saying that iOS 4.3.4 is only an update to fix the jailbreak exploits, so there are no other features added for the new update.
Therefore, it made them to think that most likely people will just have to stay with the previous iOS 4.3.3.
However, this tethered jailbreak requires your phone to be always connected to the computer to maintain the hack, otherwise you will have a re-sync with your computer using a cable.
Another risk is that your device will not be exempted with possible hangs in the field and worse your phone’s warranty will also be at stake.
In all of these, we still give credit to Apple for at least patching jailbreak holes and other issues for the device.
Although, this may appear too impossible for them to have a total security lockdown, still they have done a good job. For now, whether or not they are successful in their updates, the risks will be fully on the users for allowing jailbreaks.
