Ahh, once again the joys of lessening the security on a device to enable modification or easier use shows its dark side. Once upon a time geeks could open and hack the software they bought and make their own world a better place. Now, more people do this without the knowledge of the risks they are taking or how to manage them. The result is that "other" things start to happen showing that the need for knowledge is even more important, especially with regard to security.
First Trojan reported for the iPhone
by Jim Dalrymple
While not a huge risk, the first Trojan for the iPhone has been discovered. The first reports came from iPhone enthusiast site Modmyifone.com and were later confirmed by security research company F-Secure.
F-Secure reported that it was an 11-year-old kid playing with XML files who created the Trojan. “Next time it might be someone else with more skills and with specific target,” they said.
