Apple, iPhone, vulnerability
So unless you’ve been under a rock lately, you’ve probably heard about all the hullaballoo surrounding the vulnerability in the iPhone. It was announced at a recent BlackHat conference.
This vulnerability had the ability for a hacker to use SMS message to compromise an iPhone! This was a big blow to Apple, as traditionally Microsoft OS’ have been the target of hackers. But now with the rising popularity of the iPhone it was only a matter of time before something like this happened.
Fortunately for all those iPhone users out there, Apple rode in to the rescue and has issued a patch that is available from them that fixes the vulnerability. Apple also announced that they hadn’t heard of anyone that was actually compromised by this attack.
This however has me thinking. If this one vulnerability is there, how many more are they going to find?
