    Impact: An attacker with a privileged network position may capture or modify data in sessions protected by SSL/TLS

    Description: A certificate chain validation issue existed in the handling of X.509 certificates. An attacker with a privileged network position may capture or modify data in sessions protected by SSL/TLS. Other attacks involving X.509 certificate validation may also be possible.

The update is available for the iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad, iPad 2, and 3rd and 4th gen iPod touch. If you’re on a jailbroken device using iOS 4.3.3, do not update as this will erase your jailbreak. iOS 4.3.4 was released only ten days ago.

    Hmm I wonder if they’re starting to seek out ways the iPhone could be jailbroken and patch them before they’re discovered
