Jailbreaking your phone can lead to all sorts of issues, such as not getting important security patches or further opening up your device to attack. If you did want to take that risk, you first have to find somewhere to download a jailbreaking tool that actually works. With that in mind, a marketing firm is, presumably on behalf of some clients, trying to pay journalists to write articles that link to fake jailbreaking websites.

The sites are fake in that they are not the sites of the original jailbreak creators. There isn't an immediate indication that the files they are linking to are malicious, but it still shows a deceptive and opportunistic side of someone trying to ride the wave of the jailbreaking community.
