Apple iPhone users will be pleased to hear that the security that was spotted yesterday that could allow hackers access to private information has been holed up already. Just one day to fix the bug and release the software. Not a bad response time.
“No one has been able to take control of the iPhone to gain access to personal information,” Tom Neumayr, Voice of Apple.
How serious was the problem?
“I could steal the record of all your text messages, I could start sending text messages, I could start making phone calls, I could turn on the recorder and start listening to your messages. The problems that could arise are pretty bad.” Charlie Miller, Independent Security Evaluators
Don’t forget the sync your iPhone before updating though, just to ensure no data is lost.
