Pwn2Own 2010: iPhone Hacked, 4G may be the same

If you are the owner of an Apple iPhone then you had better start worrying, as two hackers were able to hack the iPhone at Pwn2Own 2010, which we discussed in a recent post. Alarming it took the pair just 20 seconds to do – we are left wondering if it will be the same for the rumored iPhone 4G?

Product-reviews informs us that the two hackers have informed Apple of their findings, so we hope that the fix will be made available to us with the next iPhone OS update.
BGR, the original source of the article said that the hack could gain control of your emails, SMS, address book as well as your music stored on the smartphone as well.

The hack is done by sending the iPhone to an unnamed website, which is infected with a virus that helps to gain access to the phone. Are you worried by this recent news?

    really so since i have yet to get on an unnamed site but my phone is still messing up such as my music will randomly glitch, or my phone no longer has the capabilities to send or receive pics other than by email, and my bluetooth just randomly keeps turning itself on does that mean that someone has done this or that i just was unlucky with teh phone that i got?the phone is a 3gs which i purchased in sept of '09
