Security issues found on jailbreak iPhones and iPads

For couple of years, I see some peope very at ease on using jailbreak software to their iPhones or iPads.
They abuse the software functions, and didn’t care about losing a thing, such as vulnerabilities being exploit to their mobile devices.
Graham Cluley said to his website – Naked Security, The site, jailbreakme.com, exploits an iOS vulnerability to run unauthorised code on Apple customers’ iPhones and iPads, including the new iPad 2. In this way they allow users to unlock their devices, and run programs that have not been approved by the official AppStore.
His right on this matter, i’m really afraid on the exploits of the iOS vulnerability, on this fast edge technology, there’s nothing possible. Only time can tell where and when it will happen.
Graham Cluley added, If they exploited the same vulnerability in a copy-cat manoeuvre, cybercriminals could create booby-trapped webpages that could – if visited by an unsuspecting iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad owner – run code on visiting devices.
Just imagine, everything you do on your mobile devices, could be sent to other persons without your permissions, it could be happen, if this kind of exploits of vulnerabilities will be out, and far from others concern.
