This is a good reason why Apple shouldn't offer a supported jailbreak

If they did, these guys wouldn't be helping them secure it. I'm sure there are black hats (like the NSA and GCHQ) who work on finding their own ways in, but at least having someone publicly breaking in and thereby allowing Apple to close up the holes may make things more difficult for our spooky friends. And I'm sure we all agree that's a good thing (well except for the apologists who feel that trading freedom & privacy for the illusion of security is a good thing)
