Apple Releases iPhone OS 3.0.1 Software Update, Fixes SMS Vulnerability

Apple has released iPhone OS 3.0.1 Software Update which is intended to address an SMS security issue. The flaw was discovered by Charlie Miller and would allow an attacker to run malicious code sent via SMS. Initially announced at a conference in Singapore, Miller agreed to not share details of the exploit until the Black Hat security conference which ended yesterday in Las Vegas.

The update can be applied by plugging your iPhone into iTunes and using the “Check for Update” feature.
