Recently we reported about the easiest way to Jailbreak iDevices till now. JailbreakMe 3.0 proved to be the easiest way to Jailbreak iDevices and it also brought Untethered Jailbreak to iPad 2. This tweak used a PDF exploit which was later fixed in iOS 4.3.4.
The iOS 4.3.4 fixed the PDF exploit and it came as a “security update”, so many users updated it unknowingly affecting their Jailbreak. Later on Apple introduces iOS 4.3.5 which fixed a security flaw of SSL Vulnerabilty.
You can check whether your device is safe from this flaw or not by simply going to this website :
If the page loaded looks anything like this than your device is really at risk :
Considering Untethered Jailbreak that Jailbreak Me provides many users have stuck to the old version of iOS 4.3.3. As updating the iOS can risk the Jailbreak and as Untethered Jailbreak for higher versions are still unavailable iOS 4.3.3 still seems the favourite version for Apple users. While these are the pros of this versions but there are also many cons. The SSL vulnerability which was fixed in 4.3.5 will still exist and risk the security of your iDevice.
The SSL vulnerability “CVE-2011-0228″ present in pre iOS 4.3.5 can be fixed with this patch. iSSLfix is a tweak which can fix this flaw and bring your iOS at par with 4.3.5 with respect to security. The patch is available in Cydia in the BigBoss repo. However in order to locate the file you will have to change the view from Simple to Expert.
To change the File View Settings in iOS :
1. Go to Manage and tap Packages.
2. Tap the Simple icon on top right hand corner.
This will open the Expert view and you can install iSSLfix. Those using post iOS 4.3.3 firmware need not do this patch as this security flaw is already patched.
