Apple Releases iPhone OS 3.0.1 to Fix SMS Exploit

Apple has released iPhone OS 3.0.1 to fix a SMS exploit discovered by security researchers.

Security experts Collin Mulliner and Charlie Miller found a bug which will allow hackers to completely take over your iPhone with a single character SMS. They presented the exploit at the Black Hat conference in Las Vegas, explaining that it works by slightly modifying the data sent by the network which is not seen by the user.

This exploit could allow hackers to access all your data as well as take control of your iPhone to infect and attack other devices.

You can download and install the update using iTunes...
