New Safari Exploit Found, Fix To Come Tomorrow With Firmware Upgrade?

A new iPhone exploit has been uncovered that would allow an attacker to cause the iPhone to make a phone call simply by navigating to a web page. The flaw was to be announced on Monday in ComputerBild on monday but was released in a press release from Fraunhofer Institute for Secure Information Technology.

The institute says that they already notified Apple a month ago, and a fix should be available on November 21st in a firmware upgrade. This fits with rumors that the iPhone software 2.2 update would be released tomorrow.

You can catch a video of the hack here.
