iphone users beware!

glad i got a spackberry now...

Quote Quote:
If you receive a text message on your iPhone any time after Thursday afternoon containing only a single square character, Charlie Miller would suggest you turn the device off. Quickly.

That small cipher will likely be your only warning that someone has taken advantage of a bug that Miller and his fellow cybersecurity researcher Collin Mulliner plan to publicize Thursday at the Black Hat cybersecurity conference in Las Vegas.

Re: iphone users beware!

Are there any other sites that confirm this? (BBC, Sky?), never heard of 'Forbes' before...any chance it could be a hoax?

Re: iphone users beware!

apple will still manage to cover it up if it happends, they always manage to keep it out of the media. unlike MS who get shot down for anything.

Re: iphone users beware!

Of course Linux based devices are better...

...oh wait - better type the word reboot into an unpatched Android device after it was found to execute everything you typed into a text message

Don't even get me started on Windows security!

No system is bomb proof.

With all the bling, hype and so called designer 'fashion' of the i(diot)Phone that's somewhat of a contradiction!

I wonder why if the piephone is so good then why does Apple have to keep advertising it all the time?

@1986Uno45S - I don't follow the apple hype..and to be honest, as a business. I can't stand Apple. I just found it to be a very simple device to use and I haven't come across a touch screen I liked more.

I just find alot of the iPhone haters are people who have never spent an extended time using one, and have just "had a quick go on a mates" or "played with one in a shop". The texting takes a little bit to get used to, but to be honest. I have had mine since November, and have had no problems whatsoever with mine. None of the lockups/sluggishness that has been talked about. It never seems to drop calls, email works perfectly. Bluetooth works fine with my car kit. Internet is easy to use. Tbh...for what I want it performs perfectly fine.
