Possible Exploit Found In iPhone Safari, Not Yet Serious
Charlie Miller, known for his continued research on iPhone vulnerabilities may have found an exploit in Safari that could run low level code in the OS.
Miller first gained notoriety for discovering the first iPhone exploit and another vulnerability in Safari during the Pwn2Own contest in which security researchers and hackers alike attempt to break in to various OS’s running on different platforms. The exploit enables the iPhone to run shell code and if this information were to gain traction, iPhone users could have their device broken in to and have their personal information readily available to an unknown third party. However, there has been no news on any iPhone suffering an attack from this exploit.
