You never know. Hackers attack sites all the time for no valid reason

More then likely though most people will get the message from another phone that gets infected if you get it at all.
So if an infected phone sends it out to all that phones contacts there is a good chance you'll get it from someone that has you as a contact and then it's likely you have them and the SMS will come through.

If someone does get this text, please grab a screenshot before shutting it down.

The blacklisting programs though really just filter the message. It still arrives on the phone, it's not technically blocked from getting to the device.
So I'm not sure if those apps will be effective in stopping it

This sounds a lot like the time they sold all that plastic and duct tape!
I hope it's not true...I'd really be bummed out if someone got a hold of my important food shopping list!!

^ True and the worst part about it is that you won't know it happened and go about your merry way while your phone is hacked

I wonder it AT&T can put a block on their systems which would prevent the text from being delivered?

Just like before hopefully if Apple doesn't fix it maybe the JB community will. They fixed the browser exploit after he announced it, after you used it to JB your device . So JBing actually may keep you protected if the community fixes it before Apple.

Someone else posted in another thread and iduno why i didnt think about this. How do they know they are sending the text message(s) to an iphone and not a Nokia N95 or whatever? The only way possible i think is if they have access to apples database.
