    Cydia just released a patch today. It actually warns you when someone is trying to exploit that particular vulnerability. It is called PDF Patch (CVE-2010-1797) and was written by saurik.

    How is that different from the PDF Loading Warner?

    I just trust it more because of who wrote the patch.

    So, should I uninstall the PDF Loading Warner before installing this patch?

    If I'm reading this article right I believe it will uninstall it for you before it installs the patch

    EDIT: Yes it does uninstall the pdf exploit warning package before install the exploit patch

    Okay...thanks...I went ahead and manually removed the Loading Warner package before installing saurik's new PDF patch. Rebooted the phone just to be sure. Everything's working fine.
