This kind of thing creeps the hell out of me:

http://www.appleinsider.com/articles/09/07/29/sms_hack_could_leave_every_iphone_vulnerable.html

... and the fact that Apple has not issue a patch is breathtaking ... unless the real threat is not as widespread or as easy as reported. In any case, they (like Android and WinMob) need to really get their act together, because the last thing I want to be is a mobile zombie/borg for some bonehead in Eastern Europe. FFS.

Right on:

http://cultofmac.com/apple-releasing-security-patch-for-sms-exploit-in-iphone-os/13906

I wonder if it just took a long time to defeat the hack (since it looks like it's systemic on many phones other than just the iPhone) or if they just fixed it now because of the risk of it being reported. Meh. Don't really care, just glad they're getting it fixed.
