Abort! You’ve Been Compromised!

FastCompany.com details how easily an iPhone can be hacked. It’s not just open source phones and Windows Mobile users that need to worry. This just drives me nuts to think about though. Who clicks on unsolicited URLs and links? You would think someone spending that kind of money would know better. If you have an iPhone with the 1.12 software, you’re okay. For now.

The result is this video, in which Farrow was able to take complete control of an iPhone and demonstrate the ability to eavesdrop on conversations, intercept voice mail and e-mail, and upload nefarious software programs. “Physical access to an iPhone is not required.”
