Thread: Hijacking All iPhones via SMS

    Default iBlacklist to save the day
    if you're jailbroken, and have iBlacklist installed and properly configured, then there is no way the SMS hackers will control your phone.

    simple?

    Sounds Logical; I'm setting my iBlacklist to block/delete all calls/texts/mms's that are not in my phone book. At least this makes me feel a little more at ease...

    Security firms do this all the time. They scout for exploits and reveal it (privately) to the company with a month or two window to fix it. If the company ignores it, then they basically go "you need to fix this" and rather than wait for someone to figure it out and cause some real harm they release the exploit to the public, basically forcing the company to release a fix.

    I'm a helpful jerk, fear me.

    guys this is b.s you think someone is going to randomly sms you and get into your phone to steal all your important info like the caramel secret lol.

    i'm sure the securities of the phone could be exploited anything is possible but there is just no use for someone do take over youre crappy phone. you arent that important relax.....

    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?

    As far as I know none of my contacts have iPhones. I at least don't have to worry to much of me spreading it past mine to my contacts because of their lack of iPhones if I get it sent to me via someone else's iPhone contacts.

    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.
