Anyone notice how the impact description for almost all of them is useless. "May access protected parts of the OS" yea? Well computers give us that for free, at least PCs do, if we bought the phone and OS from you we have every right to access ANY part of the OS.

The OS, namely "iOS", is protected to inhibit malware, spyware and adware. Be glad that Apple is constantly patching and updating their OS when vulnerabilities and exploits are discovered. If they didn't, iOS would be just as crappy as Android. Think before you post.

Furthermore, you don't buy the OS. You buy the hardware and the right to use the software. It is still Apple's property. The same goes with any software you may use. You don't own it...you use it.

RE: iSheep Herder; Who said anything about MY knowledge and level of computer and system management? I was speaking toward the general public who, more likely than not, do not have the skills that I and apparently you have. I have been a huge proponent of jailbreaking, and still am...as long as a few security measures after the process are done...first and foremost being downloading a terminal app and changing the default root password. I agree that jailbreaking has added more features and ideas toward the advancement of iOS than the development teams at Apple themselves. Apple does not "hold my hand". My main desktop OS is a Linux flavor. But the truth is that most people don't have the knowledge required to keep a Linux-based or Windows OS badware free.therefore

Ugh...Therefore, Apple's Unix-based software is the best choice for those people because it offers the user-friendly, pleasant experience of whichever device they may be using, it simply does what it is supposed to do when you tell it to do so. That is the caveat of Android. Though you may be able to have more control, after the badware takes hold...you have limited functionality. Nevermind that it is marketed towards lower-income people, either. Do you really think those people have the system administration skills that you and I have? The average person over 30 most definitely does not, and of the younger groups, the percentage of people that don't far outweigh the ones that do. So in summary, yes...think before YOU post, and think beyond yourself, and realize that there are many, many people out there that need their "hand held". and when it comes to a companion software to guide you through the badware-laden internet of today, Apple is the best guide available.

If it wasn't for this, the exploits would make the phone unuseable and worse, unfixable maybe

That's why I don't jailbreak anymore that was way back the iPhone 3g days. Before there is no airplay mirroring, airdrop, custom ringtones, free apps. Now everything is there added on every iOS update. If you don't want to pay developers on their hard work just wait for it to become free because they are generous enough to make it free for a day and if you had the chance to get news on the free stuff on the appstore, you're lucky (besides, there are apps that scoop the appstore for free for a dya apps). I chose not to jailbreak because of security. I am happy of my secured phone not like android tha is a malware and virus magnet. If you install antiviruses it also slows down your device becaise it runs on the background, consumes memory space. So why sacrifice security just to install cracked apps?! It is a hassle to reformat your phone on every jailbreak update. Jailbreaking is a thing of the past dude!

Actually I need my jailbreak, there's tether me and speed intensifier and phantom and movie box 3 and others that are essential, I don't crack apps and get them for free, I do pay for those, but I do believe that the jailbreak does make my phone more usable and without the jailbreak, I might as well go to android. Jailbreak is the only thing that makes iPhone better than android, because android has had these tweaks for years before Apple finally put them into iOS, and it's the new tweaks that come out on Cydia that beats regular iOS and android. Then android copies it and implements it about 3-4 months down the road and then Apple implements it about 2-3 years down the road

Oh no! Say it ain't so. How dare Apple close security holes? I want my iPhone to be as insecure as possible.

It was expected. This ain't no cat in mouse game anymore for those who think it is because the hackers tell Apple about the vulnerabilities. And it's on purpose so the jailbreak developers find even more holes.
