    Well there are boot loader exploits and software exploits

    Bootload=Jailbreakable for life (meaning no matter what apple does they can not block the jailbreak because it has to do with the bootloader

    Software=A hole in apple's firmware and can be patched (in a software update like 4.0 to 4.1)

    Over all an exploit is a hole that the jailbreak devs can use to get root and Cydia on your iPhone or iPod or iPad.

    long story short, exploits are security holes that lead to jailbreaks

    Yes and maybe no. The update might get rid of you jailbreak but you will always be able to jailbreak it again (boot loader)
