writes: The New York Times is reporting that the iPhone has been hacked. From TFA:
The researchers, working for Independent Security Evaluators, ... said that they could take control of iPhones through a WiFi connection or by tricking users into going to a Web site that contains malicious code. The hack, the first reported, allowed them to tap the wealth of personal information the phones contain. I.S.E. will display the hack at the Black Hat conference, but unlike other researchers, they have submitted a report and a patch to Apple. Also, the article contains an apparent acknowledgment of the report by Apple.
