    Hello everyone, with people coming up with all sorts of hacks carried out by knowing just an IP, it makes me wonder if similar can be done against an iPhone that hasn't been jailbroken ever cuz iPhones use internet too! And google says IP's can be hacked on infected computers :/
    Thanks!!!

    If there was a well known and publicly known method of doing this, it would probably be patched by now...

    Haha phew! That puts me at ease lol cuz google says all sorts of stuff! And considering everyone runs internet on their iPhones, their IP's are at a real risk.

    So, do stock iPhones not have any open ports the bad guys can attack?

    Not unless the NSA is after you. They can listen in on anything.

    lol, of course :) The same holds true for MAC's?

    I'm asking because I use a common wireless Lan network for all my devices and windows computers catch viruses every other second. While every user tries their best to safeguard their windows computers with firewalls and AV progs, I was wondering if my mac devices (which are not protected by firewalls because everyone says they can't be harmed) were at any risk being of being exploited being hnder the same IP on the same network? And if not, why not? Thanks for all the replies

    Apple says all sorts of stuff too. It doesn't make it true just because a competitor verbally attacks another competitor.

    Just remember that if the NSA can hack something others can get this information, too. There is no privacy anymore.
