Submission + - How To Hijack 'Every iPhone In The World' 1

mysidia writes: A new article from forbes.com reports on an unpatched iPhone vulnerability that researchers Charlie Miller and Collin Mulliner plan to reveal at Black Hat. The bug may allow hackers to remotely seize control of iPhones by using SMS text messages. "If you receive a text message on your iPhone any time after Thursday afternoon containing only a single square character, Charlie Miller would suggest you turn the device off. Quickly."
A similar vulnerability is reported to exist on devices running Windows mobile software.

WoW Gamer Earns Federal Investigation Achievement 167

barnyjr writes "A teenager could face federal charges after investigators say he made online threats to kill Americans on a plane from Indianapolis to Chicago. According to investigators, a monitor of the online interactive game World of Warcraft saw the alleged threats in an on-line chat and called Johnson County authorities.
