iPhone Hacked

Recommended Posts

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.

    • I’m in a similar situation right now and I am “freaking out” how did it work out for you what paper work did you file? Who did you reach out to?
    • Did someone pee in your charcoal 😁?
    • I like to see the fish that gets away verses not. A few weeks ago, I was trolling for walleyes on the SLR and while reeling one in, something grabbed a hold of it and fought hard for a while but chewed the walleye pretty bad. Trolled over the same are 20 minutes later and caught another walleye and this time it didn't let go and I saw what was eating my walleyes and it was a huge musky that got close to the boat and snapped the line and left with my crankbait and fish. So, the one I saw that "got away" was a cooler sight than the mystery fish that attacked my walleye that I never got to see earlier that day
    • Besides the motor on the back, I don't see much a difference between an old boat and a new boat.   It's not like new boats parallel park themselves.           
    • and still end up with an old boat as was said earlier.  I think it's more a labor of love for what we have...
    • looks like it got corrected! thanks Rick
    • Looks fine to me @rundrave :D
    • Hello from the NW Angle!

      Surface water temperatures range from 65 in the morning reaching low 70s during the late afternoon. 

      Minnesota has been best in shallower areas such as the Flag Island Flats (5-9 ft.) Prime time being the evening bite with many nice fish including a 31" beast. Deeper water around Four Blocks and LIttle Oak are providing good action for Walleye/Sauger. Orange has been the top color. Even with the recent Mayfly hatch and plenty of crayfish in fishes bellies, (Walleye, Sauger and Northerns) the fishing is awesome!

      Canadian fishing has been the best using bottom bouncers in the mud with gold being the most productive color spinners. Jigging will produce fish around structure with larger Walleye/Sauger coming out of 26+ feet of water. Pike and Muskie action is somewhat concentrated to underwater weeds or occasionally while jigging for walleye.

      We hope to see you soon!

    • I think you'd probably have to develop connections to find the right boats at the right price.  If you could also increase the number of boats you do in a given season you could also start buying some materials in bulk which would help drive material costs down.  Still I'm guessing margins would be relatively thin, certainly not a get rich quick scheme.
