Apple has issued a software update that fixes at least three serious
security holes in supported versions of its iPhone, iPad, iPod and iPod
Touch devices. The Apple update - iOS 4.2.9 or iOS 4.3.4, depending on your
device — will be downloaded when you connect your iOS device to a computer
running iTunes.

Apple describes the flaw thus:

"Impact: Viewing a maliciously crafted PDF file may lead to an unexpected
application termination or arbitrary code execution
Description: A buffer overflow exists in FreeType's handling of TrueType
fonts. Viewing a maliciously crafted PDF file may lead to an unexpected
application termination or arbitrary code execution."

BTW - our apologies for not notifying this issue to you in mid-July when it
was first reported.
