Shell Code For iPhone Attack Tool

Security for the iPhone has been bounced around and discussed ever since the product hit the market over the summer.

But HD Moore, inventor of the famous Metasploit framework, has posted shell code on his blog that can be used to turn the iPhone into a tool for attack.

This shouldn't come as any great surprise. The issue isn't necessarily the security of the iPhone itself. It's the fact that the iPhone has a browser and can access the web. If an iPhone catches malware through that browser, it can just pass it along to a network like an infected laptop, desktop or other mobile device.

More details are in this story on SearchSecurity.
