17 October 2007 @ 15:31iPhone TIFF Vulnerability Interests More Than Unlockers
In an article at PCWorld, Gregg Keizer writes that a hacker by the name of H.D. Moore has posted exploits that take advantage of the same TIFF vulnerability that many unlockers are using to allow iPhone use on networks other than AT&T.
Moore has added the exploits to Metasploit, the popular penetration framework, a move that in the past has meant in-the-wild attacks are not far behind. He predicted that malicious code exploiting the TIFF vulnerability would be on the loose “pretty soon.”
I stand by my belief that Apple will be quick to fix the TIFF vulnerability. At least I hope so.
