iPhone Hacked

5 posts in this topic

There is a recent report saying that someone has discovered how to hack the popular iPhone. Doesn't matter which model, old or new, they are potentially vulnerable to a simple text message that may allow the hacker to take control of the device.

iPhone owners are instructed to power down the device ASAP if they notice something strange with a recent text message.

They are then urged to head to their nearest AT&T store and exchange it for a Blackberry which is renowned for their Fort Knox-like security. grin

(This probably should/could have been posted in the equipment forum as well as a heads-up to iPhone users.)

What? Security breach! I only have one of those Nonkia's that take pictures and still amazed by the tech behind that.

Just joshing of coarse, been looking into to them. Now you got me all paranoid. grin

ANY phone with data (i.e. internet) possibilities can be hacked (that makes just about all of them since 2007). You roll the dice with everything internet related. You just have to think what your odds are. And the odds of YOUR phone getting hacked are two: Slim and none with Slim on a fast horse out of town. Don't sweat it.

Apple addressed the specific security hole in the OS. It was presented to Apple by a group that attempts to find these weaknesses in programs in order to inform the manufacturers of the problem. Apple addressed it very quickly once it was made public. They do not believe that any iPhone was actually affected by this.

    • Everything turned out awsome, I'll definitely be hanging the bellies again. Cold smoked then heat with more smoke.
    • love the answer thirdeye!!!!  hang onto that last bottle!!
    • Should be some good games today, I'm definitely rooting for the Falcons and Steelers but I don't know man. The Pats just seem to play the best team ball in the League. Guys step up and perform at every different position.  The Packers are just scary in the post season, not so much the whole team but that dirty dog Aaron Rodgers.    I hope they both turn out to be competitive and exciting.

    • You miss the Bush administration? Howso considering the Obama administration was pretty much the same only cooked a little longer?
    • many of my 2nd graders have more frontal cortex development........
    • My trailer is a bit over 20 years old. It was redecked 10-12 years ago with 3/4 plywood decking that was not treated and that lasted about 10 years as well so it seems a decade is the lifespan of regular plywood left outside with no treatment.    I replaced the deck for a second time this year and used treated plywood so we will see if that makes it more than a decade. I would suspect you might expect at least that much life from advantech even though it doesn't seem to be rated for continuous exposure if I read it right.
    • That's what I miss most about the Bush administration. Sure, they were evil, but at least they were freaking competent. Sure, they lied a lot, but at least it wasn't about easily disprovable things like crowd size. When they lied, they lied to further their agenda, not to mask their hurt fee fees.   All Presidents are ridiculed.
      This is the only one who takes it personally. Such a baby. Sad!
