Apple blocks site JailbreakMe.com from the Apple Store
These days, many users were having to go to the Apple Store to run the jailbreak of the iPhone 4 in exposure through the site Jailbreakme.com. As we might expect, Apple has blocked access to the site and so now you can not use the service.
Simply using OpenDNS, Apple has made sure that the visits to the Site JailbreakMe be automatically redirected to the official site Apple.com. In this way, users can not use exploit to unlock the iPhone on display.
Recall also that Apple has already informed CNET that they have completed a patch that will fix the vulnerability in Safari and completely block the action of JailbreakMe.

Should anyone be surprised that Apple is blocking Jailbreakme.com from within Apple stores? They don't want their display units jailbroken, or have unauthorized software installed on them.
The patch likely won't be out until 4.1 is released, which I suspect will be in September along with the release of the new iPod Touch.

Bugs are bugs. It's not something that was intentionally put in the software, lawyers will always try to get a cut of what they don't deserve, but by the time this hole is really exploitable on a massive scale, the fix will be out.
Apple doesn't do "patches" for the iOS, it releases a whole new version. I wish they did patching, it would be nice.
