Apple today updated its iOS devices to close the nasty PDF security hole that can be exploited by a malformed file or website.  But Apple didn’t issue an update for all of its products.  The original iPhone or iPod touch were left at 3.1.3.  I’m not sure they’ll se an update either.  Maybe it is a lower priority and it will come out in upcoming weeks?

Or, are those folks with original iOS devices stuck?  Is three years too long to expect security updates?   Ironically, the only way for them to secure themselves at this point is to Jailbreak.
