Mobile devices, Planets and the Human Condition


Not everything is coming up Apple, Safari + iPhone flaw enables complete control exploit.

Some of the guys from Independant Security Evaluators have discovered a flaw that allows a malicious third party to take control of an iPhone through the use of a WiFi connection, or by getting users to go to a website that contains the Malicious code.


This is a fairly gaping hole of gigantic proportion, according to the guys who developed the hack, once you manage to get in you had complete and utter access and control over everything.

According to the site the exploit can be delivered in three ways

1. An attacker controlled wireless access point.

2. A misconfigured forum website

3. A link delivered via e-mail or SMS

The full disclosure of the hack will be presented at BlackHat Las Vegas on August 2 at 4:45

the are offering up a preliminary verson of the Technical paper from their website (link at the bottom)

I'm a professional Geek, and also in my own time, I am likely to write about all manner of things on this blog.
Of late I haven't updated this place much, but I need to do some revamping and dust off the cobwebs a bit. so thats what I'll do. going to aim for a minimum of three times a week updated here to begin, then perhaps head towards every day!


Who knows! 


but for now I hope you enjoy what you read, and that I aid the constant novelty and stimulus to your brain that the internet provides us all, in a way nothing else can!


I am likely to comment on everything here, but my current topics of choice are
