Apple Releases iOS 4.3.5 And 4.2.10 To Fix “Security Issues”

Apple has just released iOS 4.3.5 for iPhone (GSM only), iPad and iPod Touch users as well as iOS 4.2.10 for Verizon (CDMA) iPhone users! If you’re still on 4.3.3 and you’re Jailbroken with JailbreakMe then do not update because this will cause you to lose your untethered Jailbreak! However, if you’re on 4.3.4 and you feel the need to upgrade then you can do so because you can still get a tethered Jailbreak.

According to Apple’s support document, iOS 4.3.5 and 4.2.10 fix security issues:

iOS 4.3.5 Software Update

  • Data SecurityAvailable for: iOS 3.0 through 4.3.4 for iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4 (GSM), iOS 3.1 through 4.3.4 for iPod touch (3rd generation) and later, iOS 3.2 through 4.3.4 for iPadImpact: An attacker with a privileged network position may capture or modify data in sessions protected by SSL/TLSDescription: A certificate chain validation issue existed in the handling of X.509 certificates. An attacker with a privileged network position may capture or modify data in sessions protected by SSL/TLS. Other attacks involving X.509 certificate validation may also be possible. This issue is addressed through improved validation of X.509 certificate chains.
