iOS v4.3.4 Update – fixes PDF security hole

Apple released iOS v4.3.4 to fix the PDF security hole that allowed a hacker to send a PDF file and upon opening it the hacker had access to the system and could potentially put harmful code there.

This update applies to:

GSM iPhone 4, 3GS

iPad 2, iPad

iPod Touch 3rd / 4th Generation

CDMA iPhone 4 has iOS 4.2.9 update available.

So plug in your iOS device to your iTunes machine and get the update…
