iPhone Users Beware!

hacking-into-iphone-sms

Engadget posted an interesting article about hacking on the iPhone. It seems that the latest firmware 3.0 has a security vulnerability that could enable hackers to “run software code on the phone that is sent by SMS over a mobile operator’s network in order to monitor the location of the phone using GPS, turn on the phone’s microphone to eavesdrop on conversations, or make the phone join a distributed denial of service attack or a botnet.” I think I must have experienced this first hand yesterday when my iPhone kept telling me that my phone is trying to send out a SMS. Damn! Time to re-Jailbreak to start on a clean slate. These Cydia shit is getting out of hand. I knew it was a mistake messing around with it.
