iPhone SMS Vulnerability [pcworld.com]
At the Black Hat security conference in Las Vegas, an iPhone security flaw has come to light. The iPhone security flaw--which exploits a weakness in SMS text messaging to take control of the device--appears real, but will probably be addressed before it becomes a serious issue.The truth is that there are millions of iPhones in use today, and while many have been jailbroken, I am unaware of a single report of someone having their phone hacked in the wild. Of course, this might change now that the cat is out of the bag, but I wouldn’t lose any sleep until there are reports of iPhones actually being exploited.
