Stupid iPhone Owners! Must Read!

http://gizmodo.com/5042332/huge-ipho...mation-at-risk

There's a huge security problem in the latest iPhone 2.0.2: if you have your JesusPhone password protected, using a very simple trick gives anyone full access to your cellphone private information in Mail, SMS, Contacts, and even Safari. The two-step trick is even simpler to the one used in the past to gain access to the phone to install unlocking cards or jailbreak. Fortunately, there's a way to avoid this obvious security breach until Apple fixes it.

First, password protect your phone and lock it. Then slide to unlock and do this:

1. Tap emergency call.
2. Double tap the home button.

iPhone = Fail!

That would imply you're dumb enough to lose your iPhone. I don't even password lock mine... are people really that paranoid?!

Ditto... Mines in my front left pocket...
I think I'd notice someone stealing all my secret infoz.
Course.. while they are down there... maybe they'll work in the happy ending... Social engineering is over 50% of hacking

When I do that it just shows my favorites, and that's empty anyway.

Actually, it depends on what you have your double tap of the home button set up to do. I have mine setup to go to my ipod. so if I do that it go's to my songs. if I hit the home button again to go do something else it prompts me for my password, so all my email and stuff is safe.




HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.

I didn't know there was a double tap feature. How do you change it to go to the ipod? I do have the password on mine because when I didn't I accidently dialed my mom and left her a really long background noise voicemail.

Its under settings, home button.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!
