I hope Apple knows how to patch....
Hahahahaha. Thats funny. People waited so long to get that phone, spend so much money on it. Now that a lot of people have it, there it goes.
When will a linux phone be out? It would be the most secure among anything else. I wonder if Ant saw this and now will be throwing his in the toliet.
this was my favorite part:
That's good! Yes, consumers are too stupid to understand security, so why do it then? :hamm::arrrh:::hammer:
Hassidic Jew computer hackers?
Apple enthusiasts have been arguing for years that their favorite products can't get viruses.
I love it.
Yea, that part made me lauf. Why even fucking admit that. Even if it may be true, if I had an IPhone after reading that I would return it with that statement taped to the device.
That was my thought. Why wouldn't they have spent a little more time to make their phone as resistant to hacking as their computers? Why take a pass on the goodwill created with customers and their mostly virus/hack free computers and blow it all with the iPhone?? I know they wanted to rush it to market and all, but a couple of extra months of development might've spared them this potential black eye.
a couple of extra months?? how about *not* running all your apps as "root" (for those who don't know - that's the "master-user" will full privileges to everything on the system).
I bet you they were dumb enough to leave root's password - password. We had this "Counter Hacking" class - a night class which pretty much was how to arm up your system for network configurations. Once we installed Linux on our systems, I went to each machine via ssh and used the Ollllll root - password trick since most people did not even realize there was a thing called root. Hell most people dont realize there is a thing called Administrator on windows.
And Apple, what a fucking bunch of dolts.
