iPhone has a built-in spyware module?

VS iPhone
Wednesday, July 18, 2007

Today an underground hacker team "web-Hack" from Russia released a white paper with results of iPhone firmware research. They reverse- engineered some functions and published this information.

Results of a research shocked community. Russian hackers found a built-in function which sends all data from an iPhone to a specified web-server. Contacts from a phonebook, SMS, recent calls, history of Safari browser - all your personal information can be stolen.

At present there is no additional information about this issue. Researches assume that this function either a debug feature or a built-in back door module for some governmental structures. Anyways this function can be used by a Trojan-developers or activated by the AT&T.

We will monitor all information about this accident and will publish it immediately.
