Gadget Rumor: iPhone’s First Virus Set To Be Revealed At Las Vegas BlackHat CyberSecurity Conference
Say what now? What’s the legitimacy of this claim? CyberSecurity researchers Charles Miller and Colin Mulliner have discovered a hack that will totally take over your iPhone. Supposedly if you receive an SMS message with a single square character that you should immediately turn your phone off, as it has been compromised. Allegedly the hacker can make calls, send texts, and take pictures, all remotely from your iPhone. The sluething duo with matching initials say they discovered the hack some 6 weeks ago and reported it to Apple. Apple has yet to relase a patch effectively halting the virus. Will we hear about this again?
