    Default iPhone users wetting pants?

    Before you take this as another iPhone bash thread, please feel free to not feel that way.

    After being sent this article with the original thought that I would be LaugingMyAO, as I continued to read it and really felt bad for iPhone users. Apple should seriously step their game up. They are known for being really stubborn when it comes to listening to their consumers, but to ignore this? What is WRONG with them! This should make all of BB users proud to own a Black Berry, because our security has remained untouched! Did you know many professional ethical hackers use blackberries? What does that tell you?

    Anyway, read below.

    How To Hijack 'Every iPhone In The World' - Forbes.com

    My bad side(which some of you may have seen in the earlier .148 Card builds) makes me want this attack to go through successfully. I know it sounds bad but maybe this is what apple needs to really start taking this serious if they want to penetrate the business market harder.

    Now that is some scary stuff!

    I guess one thing Apple can thank is that the guys discovering these holes are good guys and are holding off how they'll do it until it's shown at a closed-doors event for Apple security employees to see and fix.

    It also concerns me a bit that Apple has let some of these holes linger since 2007! Really, Apple??

    The iPhone OS wasn't built at the start to be secure with great encryption like the Blackberry OS. The iPhone has had many exploits.

    I can guarantee you, though, that AT&T's network would drastically improve if all iPhones failed at once. Then 3G might be functional/adequate.

    lol. Strange logic but I get it. I am tempted to add a poll of Pro Hack and Anti Hack on the iPhone.

    I personally am for it just because I think it would be interesting. I do however find chaos a funny thing when implemented in a way where no one is physically hurt. Cmon it would make a good news headline.

    I kind of agree with you here. I think someone should exploit this hole to make the iPhone vibrate, ring, and then display a funny picture. Lock the user from clearing the picture for a set amount of time.

    If this hits every iPhone across the US and parts of the rest of the world, I'm sure it'll be a massive wake-up call to Apple!

    and watch tomorrow someone comes in and gets offended and tries to defend their iPhone against security attacks. its better to admit to issues so they can be resolved rather than be ashamed of them and let them go overlooked.

    You do know that if it ever does happen, that you and I will be the first ones they go after right?

    Read: RCCollins with a link to the UAE blotch as his "proof" that RIM's security is worse. But we've all read my rebuttal which showed it as nothing more than him grasping at straws.

    This is ridiculous. Forget about Apple...well, it'd be BAD for Apple, but what does it say about ATT? It's pretty widely agreed that if they didn't have the iPhone they would be WAY behind the industry curve and if it's proven that the device can be pretty much bait for hackers, good lord.

    Not exactly a step-by-step, but here's an article where the embedded videos show a security expert cracking an iPhone 3G S in roughly 5 minutes! With the same freeware you use to jailbreak it!

    Hacker Says iPhone 3GS Encryption Is ‘Useless’ for Businesses | Gadget Lab | Wired.com

    That it only takes freeware to bust through the "security" of an iPhone makes me shudder a bit.

    wow, thanks for the information information. That is really interesting as WELL! Considering OS leaks do not cause your blackberry to be hacked! I bet no one thought about jailbreaking being potentially harmful. Where are our normal iPhone Posse at like Jeli and Scorpio, havent seen them chime in yet. Theres not really much to say to this other than good luck fellow smatphoners!

    I know isnt that so weird that their phones are hackable? It is very non-consistent. How can you make a phone version of your safe computers, yet the phone is not safe itself. Now since RIM can make a safe phone, image if RIM started making business laptops.

    iPhone Jailbreaking Could Crash Cellphone Towers, Apple Claims | Threat Level | Wired.com

    Another article another CrackBerry member came across, where Apple claims that by jailbreaking the iPhone, it opens the door for hackers to upload malicious software that can end up at the cell tower computers and cause wide-spread damage.

    While it is Apple creating a case to not allow jailbreaking to be legalized, I'm beginning to think that Apple isn't too far off. Considering that jailbreaking software is what Zdziarski said he used to crack the 3G S...
