Worlds first iPhone virus released today.
It comes via SMS

It allows the attacker to make calls from your phone.

Steal your data.

And spread the virus to other iPhones in your address book.


The hacker that found the exploit 6 weeks ago told apple about it.

Apple has yet to release a patch.

A side note: It also can infect any android based phone.

All I saw was that it can hit the iPhone and phones that use Android.

Re: Worlds first iPhone virus released today.
Pretty sure the exploit on the Android has already been fixed

The virus is essentially unstoppable. The best you can hope to do is turn off your phone the instant you see the text message with only a square character

If you don't act quick enough, your phone will be hijacked

Apple better fix this quickly... Keeping your phones off all the time is not a realistic solution :P
