When this story first broke 2 days ago, I though; well they are going to release a patch pretty soon given that the vulnerability is going to be released today at the black hat hackers meeting.
Well, guess what I read in CNET? Apple new about this for 6 weeks!!! Are you kidding me? From CNET..
The attack is enabled by a serious memory corruption bug in the way the iPhone handles SMS messages, said Miller, a senior security researcher at Independent Security Evaluators. There is no patch, despite the fact that Apple was notified of the problem about six weeks ago, he said.
I don’t get it. 6 weeks? And no patch? Huurmmph. Count down before some script kiddie starts to make trouble in 5.. 4.. 3.. FAIL
