    Default iPhone SMS Attack!

    The bug was discovered by noted iPhone hacker Charlie Miller, who first talked about the issue at the SyScan conference in Singapore. At the time, he said he'd discovered a way to crash the iPhone via SMS, and that he thought that the crash could ultimately lead to working attack code.

    Since, then he's been working hard, and he now says he's able to take over the iPhone with a series of malicious SMS messages. In an interview Tuesday, Miller said he will show how this can be done during a presentation at the Black Hat security conference in Las Vegas this Thursday with security researcher Collin Mulliner.
    So this is pretty much self explanatory. Charlie Miller has found a specific way to attack an iPhone. Which Doesn't surprise me at all. What does bug me and doesn't bug me even at that is the fact that This bug was reported to Apple 6 weeks ago and no patch release has became available. I say if this takes a further step with out a patch, Those of you who's iPhones are screwed for whatever "reason" take advantage of this. They deserve to deal with thousands of people.
