Submission + - FoxIt Releases Fix for PDF Jailbreak Flaw (

eldavojohn writes: Despite Adobe shuffling the blame onto Apple, the now famous PDF flaw that allowed jailbreaking in Apple's mobile devices has received a fix from FoxIt. FoxIt is a third party PDF reader that claims in its most recent patch to "fix the crash issue caused by the new iPhone/iPad jailbreak program which can be exploited to inject arbitrary code into a system and execute it there." This is a curious fix since Adobe claims the exploit arises from Apple's PDF reader implementation and, evidently, also appeared in FoxIt Reader.
