DO YOU KNOW what your iPhones been up to?

Tech site Gizmodo is reporting that Apple iPhones are vulnerable to an attack that may give hackers complete control of your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad. The hack is said to affect the iPad and all devices running the iOS 3.1.2 and higher.

The Press Association is reporting an official security warning  from a German government agency who say the system has”two critical weak points for which no patch exists”

Hackers can gain control of your phone when you click on PDF links in your browser. A font within the PDF causes stack overflow, a technical condition that allows the secret ninja code inside the font to gain complete control of your device. The hack is similar to the hack used to jailbreak an iPhone.

If this is successful, the hacker will have complete access to your phone allowing them to delete files, transmit files, install programs and monitor your actions. A similar problem occurred with TIFF files when the iPhone launched but the bug was later fixed. Up to 100m devices could be affected.

Gizmodo says the safest way to avoid the hack is by not downloading PDF files from untrusted sources.

Only a few months ago Apple suffered a security breach with the iPad and an antenna problem with the iPhone 4, while there are also problems with the iPad overheating.
