Apple has released a security patch to prevent malicious attacks using the JailbreakMe code.

PCWorld: Last week, developers set up a Web site called "JailbreakMe" that could hack the iPhone operating system when users visited the site. Realizing that code could also be used for malicious attacks, Apple quickly put together a patch for the security hole.

Now Apple has released the security update, and the owners of JailbreakMe have released their code to the public, making it easier for black hats to develop exploits. The race is on for iOS device users to apply the update before they get hit with malware.
