|Security Threat: iPhone Web Dialer|
|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.
