Apple may be attempting to indirectly battle JailbreakMe.com in its retail stores. Users have begun reporting problems accessing the jailbreak site from Wi-Fi networks based in Apple Stores. Rather than opening the blocked site, Safari is allegedly redirected to Apple.com.
Recent reports suggest the JailbreakMe hack is based on a PDF vulnerability in Safari. Apple claims to have already crafted a security patch, which would presumably prevent users from jailbreaking their iPhones after a simple visit to the hack site. The company has yet to announce a time-frame for the next iOS update. [via 9to5Mac]
