Researchers break iPhone's text messaging

TippingPoint Zero-Day Initiative this evening confirmed that the iPhone's SMS database has been compromised at the annual CanSecWest conference's Pwn2Own contest. Zynamics' Vincenzo Iozzo and the University of Luxembourg's Ralf Philipp Weinmann (pictured) used a malicious website in Safari to deliver a payload that could then upload the SMS logs to a remote site. The entire compromise took place in about 20 seconds, although crafting the hack took about two weeks.
