New iPhone vulnerability
iPhone owners should be on guard against a new threat, which fortunately doesn't harm the device, but still induces a freeze by taking all available system memory. According to security firm SecurityFocus, the vulnerability is exposed by a Denial of Service attack, when a maliciously crafted webpage is viewed. The page will insert code into the iPhone, which continually eats up available system memory before causing a kernel panic.
Leopard-only CandyBar 3
Panic and IconFactory recently introduced CandyBar 3.0, created exclusively for Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard, and announced that Pixadex – IconFactory's icon organization app – has been rolled into the latest CandyBar update. The update allows users to change the look of the Leopard dock by dragging and dropping new images from the Finder, and even includes support for specially marked iContainers that provide replaceable Dock themes. Panic is offering a free upgrade to CandyBar 2 and Pixadex 2 users who purchased either product after October 1st, 2007, as well as upgrade discounts to users who bought before that date. CandyBar 3.0 is available from Panic's website for $30.
