With Apple’s annual press conference just around the bend, the iPhone 5 rumors are in full-swing. You’re probably sick of them, as am I, but this mockup (below) by Italian designers, Ciccarese Design is slick enough to compensate for the disappointment by yet another rumor entering the rumor mill.
If you receive a text message in the near future containing nothing but a square character, Collin Mulliner and Charlie Miller suggest immediately turning off your iPhone, as this is the only clue you will get that someone has exploited the bug that could take over your iPhone completely. At today's Black Hat cybersecurity conference, they plan to publicize this bug, which, when exploited properly, can be used to gain control of all functions of someone's iPhone without their consent or even knowledge.
Charlie Miller, also known by some in the security community as "Safari Charlie" for his Safari exploits at the Pwn2Own hacking contest, has announced that he and Vincenzo Lozzo, a student at the University of Milan, have recently discovered a new exploit to trick the iPhone into running unsigned code, and will be revealing their findings at the Black Hat Security Conference in Las Vegas.
