Apple to fix iPhone security flaw

Apple has announced that they are going to release a software patch to fix a security flaw in their iPhone operating system, where someone could send a modified SMS message to 'control' your iPhone.

Apple is set to release a software patch to address a recently described security flaw in the iPhone, the UK network operator 02 has said.

Experts revealed on Thursday that modified SMS messages could result in iPhones being disconnected from the network or hijacked altogether.

Phones incorporating the Windows Mobile and Google Android operating systems are also vulnerable, they said.

An O2 spokesperson said the patch would be available on Saturday from iTunes.

Hope this fix will stop this from happening.

Are you concerned about the increasing numbers of attacks to the Apple products, now that they are getting popular?
