An anonymous reader writes: The Recycle Bin points out concerns with latest hacks of the iPhone:
"The fact that this exploit has been received so well by users and tech writers alike confounds me. Why would anyone be celebrating an exploit like this? Do they not realize that if Niacin and Dre have figured out how to malform the bytes of a TIFF file correctly then someone else probably has too? Someone who might not be so friendly? The thought of mobile malware should be troubling to everyone. Imagine for a minute, a worm that dials 911 on your cell phone on loop, or even one that makes a call to a 900 number when your phone is idle. There are serious ramifications with a bug like this, and everyone, not just iPhone users, is at risk until Apple fixes this."
