Apple to fix iTunes exploit

Apple isn’t going to sit down and do nothing as they are widely expected to release a fix for the exploit via iTunes sometime tomorrow. News of this patch came about from a spokesperson for O2, although it remains to be seen whether the patch would be available for all iPhone users around the world or just those who are residing in the UK. The exploit will also take advantage of Google Android and Windows Mobile handsets, although Google has already been reported to take relevant steps in fixing the security hole. Seems that the smarter phones get, the more vulnerable they are to outside attacks. Remember the good old days of dumb phones when they worked as advertised without any external threats?
