The iPhone becomes a victim of its own popularity
Posted by newsbot on December 02nd 2009



It is no secret that the Apple iPhone is one of the most owned smart/entertainment phones in the world. It is also no secret that more than half of the phones out there on the market are jailbroken and of those a large number are both jailbroken and unlocked. This is a figure that drives Apple absolutely bananas. They hate the fact that users have control over what they can and cannot do with their phones.But now we see something new, Apple and its global partners may actually have a friend (although an unintentional one). With the sudden creation of a string of worms for the iPhone software, we have a real answer to the scare tactics that Apple has tried to use. But is this a real threat, or does it once again play on user ignorance to exploit a known hole in a rather insecure operating system?
