CanSecWest- Iphone, Safari, ie, Firefox hacked

Day One hacks at CanSecWest

As promised, the iPhone did get hacked, along with the usual suspects.

Nice to see one of the successful hackers uses Opera for their own browsing  :)

... the hackers were able to create a website that when visited by the Apple smartphone forced it to spill a copy of its SMS database. The file includes a list of contacts as well as complete copies of messages that have been sent and received. The database also contains deleted messages unless a user has gone through the trouble of manually erasing them.

Wow, that's scary and I imagine Windows and Android phones are probably as easy to compromise :o
