iPhone SMS security bug
After being slammed by numerous security interests, it appears that the emergency all feature on the iPhone still allows users to compromise the security of text messages sent to the device. Blogger Karl Kraft recently discovered, through his 12-year old son, that if the device is placed in emergency call mode, full text messages are viewable, even when SMS preview is turned off. Kraft notes that the issue exists all the way up to firmware v2.1 (5F136), under the bug ID 6267416.
Apple recently unveiled three iPhone v2.0 patches, all of which claimed to resolve all outstanding issues with the device, but still some users are concerned that most issues were not properly addressed.
