|Security Threat: iPhone Web Dialer|
| 3:38 pm on Jul 18, 2007 (gmt 0)|
|Security researchers at SPI Labs Inc. are warning iPhone users not to use a special feature that lets them dial telephone numbers over the Web using the iPhone's Safari browser. |
The feature was created to give iPhone users a simple way to dial phone numbers listed on Web pages, but according to SPI, the feature could be misused.
