Apple has released an official statement on reports from hacker Pod2g and others that a serious flaw exists in the SMS protocol that allows spoofing of addresses, meaning that users could receive messages (directing them to websites or phone numbers) that aren't from the party they appear to be from. Apple's statement points out that iMessage does not have the same problem.
Apple on Thursday unveiled Security Update 2008-005, offering users protection against several major vulnerabilities, some of which affect many different platforms. The most major problem solved relates to Domain Name spoofing wherein a maliciously crafted website, coming in the form of a trusted website, would be substituted, allowing it to collect a user's personal information, such as address, phone number, or credit card numbers.
