Foxit Reader patched for “jailbreak” flaw

Foxit last week issued a patch for its free PDF reader to fix a vulnerability related to the recently released Apple jailbreak exploit. Foxit Reader fixes a flaw associated with the improper rendering of PDF documents that could allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code, according to an advisory issued by the US-CERT. The flaw also affects the PDF reader built into Apple's mobile operating system iOS, which is being used to jailbreak the latest version of the iPhone. Apple also has said it is working on a fix. — AM
