    Researchers Charlie Miller and Collin Mulliner claim that they have found a security vulnerability in the iPhone's SMS messaging system which could allow hackers to in theory "take over every iPhone in the world".

      Interesting. So if my new 3gs like blows up from these hackers or stops functioning will it be covered under warranty?

      nope, won't be covered under warranty since that focuses only on hardware failure or 'manufacturers defects' in hardware only (not software).

      So much for apple's argument that jailbroken phones were a problem. It seems it is the iphone's shoddy security that is a problem. Apple resembles micro$oft more and more.

      Wow. It's apples fault tho. We probly won't see an update that fixes it untill 3.1 comes out which is supposed to be released in September.

      I have not received any texts from any unknowns, but both my 3GS and my wife's 3g have mysteriously shut off today (not at same time). Both are jailbroken & 3.0. 3G -> Redsn0w 3GS -> Purplera1n. Both on AT&T, neither one unlocked (no need yet). Could this be Apple testing for jailbreak or unlock?

      Anyone else had a similar issue?

      Caco I think that hackers are gonna go for the masses that's why they attack windows pc so much, and now with the iPhone getting up to 30 million they've found a base. I hope I don't have to run a mobile version of trend micro MCcillin. Lol
      on a more personal note Caco are U Jose Manuel?

      nobody is going to keep their phones off just because of this exploit. And even if you did keep your phone of for how ever many days,weeks,months it takes for apple to officially release the fix, as soon as you turn your phone on to update, you will get the SMS and your phone will be hacked.

      right, so all of the press leading up to this talk was about how the iPhone had been totally hacked, that we should be expecting maybe an iPhone virus, that attackers could dial out and completely control the phone through SMS... then the talk comes and all they can do is crash an iPhone... i want to live in the media's world... it's so much cooler in the media's world... hackers work in high tech labs with hundreds of monitors and plant viruses on the president's phone... in the real world it turns out that the so-called hackers can just cause your phone to stop working until you reboot it... pretty _amazing_ stuff there, charlie... these researchers certainly do have media-trolling down to a science though...
